Neck Lift Surgery

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the neck to address age-related wrinkling in this area.

How Neck Lift Surgery Works?

Neck lift surgery is an operation that takes 2-3 hours and is performed under anesthesia in the operating room.  The patient will be kept under observation in the hospital for one night, if necessary. The surgeon makes small incisions behind the ear, at the scalp area, and the excess skin is removed.

Points to Consider After the Surgery

After neck lift surgery, the patient will be discharged with a bandage and drain on his/her face. It is very important to apply ice packs during the first 48 hours to prevent swelling of the face. The bandage should be used for 2-3 weeks. Stitches are removed 10 days later.

Recovery Period and Return to Normal Life

The first stage of the recovery phase lasts 10 days. You should not bend your head too low for a month. It is essential to avoid intense exercises and excessive work load. You may return to normal life one month after the surgery.
