What is Neck Lift?

Due to aging, the amount of elastin and collagen under the skin decreases and the skin begins to loosen. Thus, the support and tightening function cannot be provided. When the tightness in muscle and adipose tissue decreases, the taut structure of the skin deteriorates. When the subcutaneous supportive tissue decreases, the distance between the skin and the bone membrane called “periosteum”, which forms the outer part of the bone tissue, increases. As a result of these changes, a saggy and loose skin usually appears on the neck and face with the effect of gravity.

The neck area is one of the most affected parts of the face without aging. Fat and sagging in the neck area causes the formation of a double chin. In this case, no matter how young the person is, he/she looks older than he/she is because of his/her double chin. A young, beautiful and energetic appearance is characterized by a tight and taut neck area. Moreover, sagging in the neck area is more noticeable than sagging around the eyes and cheeks. For this reason, women and men of different age groups who care about their appearance often prefer neck lift surgery.

Changes in the facial area, especially in the midline, jawline and jowl area, can cause aesthetic concerns. In addition to deep wrinkles on the face, skin sagging may occur on the cheeks, eyelids and cheekbones to varying degrees depending on the individual. Depending on the localization of the complaints in question, only the face, only the neck or both areas can be stretched.

The skin in the neck area is stretched by applying neck lift aesthetics to eliminate sagging in the neck area due to various reasons and to recover the skin in the area. Thanks to neck lift aesthetics, age-related sagging can be intervened and the skin in the region can have a smooth appearance.

It is usually a condition brought about by aging that the sagging that occurs as a result of different reasons in the neck skin becomes noticeable. Accordingly, the angle between the neck and chin may disappear. On the other hand, such problems can be seen at an earlier age in people who gain and lose too much weight and have a small and receding lower jaw. Skin abundance can be seen in people with excess weight, along with fat in the jowl area.

Operation Process

Neck lift surgery is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia. An incision is made extending from the front of the patient’s ear to the earlobe, then turning behind the ear.

The remaining part is fixed by sewing it to the incision made in front of and behind the ear. In cases where fat needs to be removed from the jowl area under the chin, liposuction procedure can be utilized.
