As we age, the neck starts to reveal our age. Our skin loses its elasticity, which causes creasing and sagging. If you have loose, sagging skin on your neck, you can consider a neck lift to address these problems.Book your consultation
Neck lift, also known as lower rhytidectomy, is an outpatient procedure which addresses cosmetic issues about the neck such as jowl, loose skin, and stubborn fat. With the help of a carefully placed incision, excess and stubborn fat can be removed or redistributed. Excess skin gets removed, and cervical muscles get tightened. In this way, neck lift provides a better, more defined, firm, and youthful neck. It also helps to restore balance to facial features. Neck lift can easily be combined with other procedures such as facelift and chin augmentation.

It is not hard to be eligible for a neck lift procedure. If you are reading this, you are probably a candidate already!
You may be a good candidate:
The outcomes of neck lift can be analyzed in two main categories: aesthetical and psychological.
A neck lift can address your cosmetic and aesthetical issues you have about your neck. A neck lift improves the most visible signs of aging (turkey neck, loose skin, jowl) around your neck. Through neck lift, you can achieve a firmer, smoother, youthful, and graceful neckline. Your neck gets tightened, rejuvenated, and unwanted sagging and creases get eliminated.
Many people find cosmetic issues; such as sagging skin, that causes a wattle; excess fat, that creates a double chin; and wrinkles, that makes you look old; on the neck as serious concerns. If you are not happy with the appearance of your neck area, you can experience psychological distress, which can negatively affect your self-confidence. After the procedure, you will have a more positive self-image.
Neck lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to change the appearance of the neck. It is customized according to the needs and wishes of the patient.
In the beginning of the surgery, you will receive anesthetics. Depending on the particular case, the surgery can be performed using either general anesthesia, or local anesthesia combined with sedation. In either case, you will not feel any pain.
The details of the surgery depend on the patient’s needs and the surgeon’s approach, which makes this surgery a customized procedure. What’s suitable for you depends on your anatomical characteristics and your goals. Your surgeon will help you through the process to decide on the best option.
Broadly, your surgeon will make a small incision or incisions hidden behind the ears or in the creases of the neck. In some cases, a small incision under the chin can also be made. Through these incisions, the surgeon is able to remove fat, either using neck liposuction or a direct excision. After removing the excess skin and fat, restructuring, and tightening the neck muscles and repositioning the skin, the incisions will be closed, cleaned, and bandaged.
If the surgeon is familiar with the anatomy of the region and has experience, then the complication rate is quite low. Nevertheless, the risks and complications associated with neck lift can be split into 2 as early and late complications, regarding when they present themselves.
After the procedure, a bandage will be placed around your neck to minimize swelling and bruising, as well as to help achieve the best result. A small drainage tube can be placed to drain excess fluid or blood. They are usually removed in the next day or two. Following the surgery, you should rest as much as possible for the first few days and avoid any action that may cause discomfort in the neck. If you feel pain or discomfort, it can be controlled with painkillers. You should wear loose clothes while recovering and avoid pinning jewelry or any accessories that may irritate the neck. You should prefer shirts that have buttons on them because pulling a shirt over your head might be uncomfortable.
Most of the time, patients return to their daily activities within 1-2 weeks. Most of them take these 1-2 weeks off work. You may experience some tightness and numbness around the neck for a few weeks. Bruising and swelling are normal and will get better within a week, but tightness and numbness may last for several months. You should wait at least 2-3 weeks before resuming strenuous exercises. Makeup can help to camouflage residual swelling and bruising if they are still too obvious. In addition, you will be more vulnerable to sun exposure for several months, thus exposure to heat and sun should be limited. Always wear a hat and apply sunscreen before you go outside.
A wellbeing assistant will visit you in your hotel room every day during the first week after the surgery. We will expect you to be in our clinic for your post-op examination 1 week after the surgery, before you leave Istanbul. We will still follow your recovery process while you are away. Clineca will provide you with complete support and inform you about everything you need to know during your recovery. We will be with you from your consultation to the very end of your recovery.
