There's a long-standing plastic surgery legend about neck lifting. "Face lift is possible, but neck lift is not possible."
The most memorable one of the information pollution in the internet about aesthetic surgery is, I think this myth about neck lifting.
Yes. "Neck lifting" can be done. Moreover, it gives very successful results in selected cases. It is sufficient to combine the right patient, the right need and the right method.
For a successful neck lift, the patient is examined firstly and needs are determined. Then the age of the patient, smoking habit, disease and operations patient underwent are taken into consideration to decide about the method to be chosen. Usually the process is performed by opening the front and back of the ear. If necessary, we interfere under the jaw. The skin of the neck and the muscle tissue called “Platisma " is considered separately. Rejuvenation is ensured in Platisma area by means of cutting, stitching and shrinking. Then, the excess skin is directed towards the front ear and jaw tip. If necessary, the prosthesis is placed to the jaw tip or fat injection is performed.
For a better recovery period after surgery the corset is used day and night during the week. The stitch is removed at the end of the two weeks and the healing begins. Usually after 15 days, the patient can continue his social life comfortably.
