What is Neck Lift?

Neck Lift in Thailand, also called Platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that targets sagging skin under the jaw line and neck through tightening the tissues and muscles. The effects of aging show early within the neck area. The skin begins to hang loosely and the muscles underneath lose their tone.

How is the Neck Lift performed?

Neck Lift in Thailand can be performed in a many of ways:

  • An incision can be made behind the ear or alternatively in front of and behind the ear, similar to a facelift incision. In this technique, excess neck skin is removed through the incision made behind the ear.
  • An alternative method, popularized by Cleveland Clinic plastic surgeons, involves creating an incision under the chin without removing any skin and without the need for an incision in front of the ear. Release of the neck skin from the underlying muscles allows the skin to contract without skin removal. The platysma muscle (platysmaplasty) is also tightened through the chin incision.
  • In the elderly, skin is removed directly from under the chin through a zig-zag incision. No incision is therefore made in front of or behind the ear. This reduces the complexity of the procedure. ft procedure performed?

What result can I expect?

As you begin to evaluate your Neck Lift Thailand results, please remember that it may take several weeks to months for swelling to fully dissipate and up to six months for incision lines to mature.

Life-long sun protection and a healthy lifestyle will help extend the results of your rejuvenated, more youthful appearance. As swelling and bruising subside, the visible improvements of a neck lift appear. Your final result should not only provide a more youthful and rested appearance, but also help you feel more confident about yourself.

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

What are the risks involved with Neck Lift?

There are risks with any kind of Neck Lift Thailand, and cosmetic procedures are no exception. In choosing to undergo a neck lift, the patient risks infection and possible allergic reaction to the anesthesia; the patient may also experience excessive scarring from the neck lift and other complications, such as:

  • Seroma: The collection of fluid under the skin
  • Neck tightness: This can occur if the skin is stretched too much during surgery
  • Numbness: Patients often experience numbness at the incision site after surgery
  • Skin irregularities: These can include lumpiness or mottling

How is Neck Lift recovery?

Your plastic surgeon may also recommend you wear a medical compression bandage to help reduce post-operative swelling. This is usually worn night and day for at least five to seven days and then only at night for a longer period of time. It’s important to follow instructions to ensure proper recovery.

Recovery from a neck lift takes time. Most people can return to work in seven to 14 days. If you participate in sports or are physically active, you will have to wait at least three weeks to resume those activities.

It is important to keep your head elevated above your heart to minimize swelling and to keep your head straight (no excessive twisting or bending of the neck). Do not apply ice to the neck as this can compromise blood flow and result in skin death.
