There are numerous ways wind the clock back regarding facial rejuvenation. But mostly, what everyone fails to understand is that the wrinkled neck gives away the age even if face receives best of the treatment. An aged neck has not only loose skin and excess fat, but the cords and bands due to aged muscles can distort the graceful contour of the neck. Although many people who consult to aesthetically improve their neck do so due to the age related changes, but young people can also be troubled by loose skin that may develop after weight loss. Although women may try to cover them under turtlenecks and scarves, yet they can do little to camouflage when at home with their family or gathering with close relatives. Whether you are bothered with minor laxity of skin, or have other significant issues, at Dr. Omar Plastic Surgery, Lahore, Pakistan we offer a variety of options to help you regain your youthful, elegant, and well defined neck.
Before surgery, Dr Omar emphasizes the control of hypertension, cessation of smoking and discontinuation of blood thinning medications for a few days to reduce chances of complications. Dr Omar employs three types of incisions for neck lift. Usually it is part of a formal facelift and the incisions for facelift are extended behind the ear along the hairline. In some cases, particularly if there is much lax skin beneath the chin, a small incision is made below the chin hidden in a skin crease. In rare cases, when skin quality is good and a patient is troubled by excess fat in the neck, only small incisions are made at both sides of neck for cannulas. Dr Omar performs a variety of maneuvers to address the aesthetics of neck. This involves tightening of neck muscles at the sides of neck and tucking the skin behind the ear with conservative removal, tightening the skin in the center of neck and suctioning away excess fat with liposuction. Multiple techniques can be combined to achieve best aesthetics according to individual needs. At the end of the surgery, dressing is done over surgical site and drains are placed. The procedure lasts for 2-3 hours.
Dr Omar performs it routinely in local anaesthesia. We pay special emphasis on pain control, and makes sure that patient remains pain free during the surgery. For our patients, neck lift is not painful at all as best technique and potent local anaesthetics are utilized for the surgery. Post operatively, we prescribe special pain control regime to help patients recover smoothly.
Post operatively, patient is discharged either on the same day or the next, and is advised follow up in the clinic. Drains are removed after a day or two and sutures are removed after 5-7 days. We recommend chin band for a few weeks to obtain the best outcome. Usually most of the edema settles in a week and one can attend social gathering after 3 weeks.
Usually it is performed as part of face lift procedure, but if performed separately, it is at an affordable cost, ranging from Rs. 30,000 to 60,000, depending upon the complexity of the procedure.
