In addition to preventing the signs of aging in the jaw line and neck, neck lift surgery decreases the appearance caused by a variety of factors.
Surgery to lift the neck, also known as a lower face lift, prevents signs of aging in the jawline and neck, and decreases unwanted appearances caused by various factors such as gravity, sun damage, smoking, and stress.
Besides neck lift surgery, other rejuvenation operations include eyebrow lifting, eyelid surgery, fat transfer, and correction of drooping or frowning eyebrows.
There are two types of neck lift surgery: general anesthesia and local anesthesia. With general anesthesia, the patient is kept asleep and comfortable during the procedure. The neck muscles are tightened, the incisions are closed after excess skin and fat are removed. With local anesthesia, the patient is kept awake and comfortable during the procedure. Small incisions are made around the ear, behind and under the chin.
It is also possible to apply non-surgical rejuvenation treatments as an alternative to neck lift surgery. However, it does not provide the same results as neck lift surgery, but only delays this period. Furthermore, it can be used to complement neck lift surgery.
