The neck is one area of the body that often betrays our age. Over time, the skin will begin to sag. This condition often referred to as turkey neck, is not something most of us aspire to. If you are hoping to turn back the hands of time, a neck lift can help. This cosmetic surgery procedure can help restore a firmer and more youthful contour to the neck.
There are two procedures involved when discussing a neck lift. Cervicoplasty refers to the removal of excess skin, while platysmaplasty refers to the removal or alteration of the neck muscles.
Platysmaplasty can help with the appearance of a “turkey wattle” or neck bands which can result from loose or weakened neck muscles. Depending upon the patient’s individual needs, these techniques may be performed separately or together.
Dr. Stevens recommends a neck lift and either one or a combination of these procedures for healthy adults who have realistic goals for improvement.
During the initial healing process following the neck lift, swelling and bruising can occur and the skin of the neck may be numb for a period of time. Some discomfort or pain may also result which can be alleviated with prescription pain medication. A compression garment may need to be worn for several weeks. A return to work and light activity can usually be expected within ten to fourteen days after surgery.
