Neck Lift in Phuket

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of the jawline and neck that has lost elasticity. The procedure is also called a lower Rhytidectomy. It is mostly carried out to make the neck look youthful and healthy, particularly when wrinkling on the neck’s skin and a double chin are apparent. This type of procedure can also treat excess fat in the lower face (jowls), excess fat under the chin (Turkey wattle/double chin), loose skin in the neck, and muscle banding in the neck. To prepare for this surgery, you may be advised to avoid certain medications and supplements, stop smoking four weeks before and after the surgery, and eat a healthy diet.

The surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia.  The most commonly used procedure is liposuction. Your surgeon makes a small incision behind each ear and under the chin. Fat may be redistributed or sculpted from the jowls and neck. Your surgeon also repositions the tissue underlying the neck, tightens the platysma muscle, and trim excess skin. The last step is closing the incisions with sutures or adhesives. 

A neck lift is an outpatient surgical procedure, but you can opt to stay overnight in the hospital. You should stay in the Phuket for four to five days after the surgery because there will be follow-up checkups to monitor your healing and for sutures removal. Most people get back to work after ten to fourteen days as their recovery period. However, you may need three weeks before doing any physical activities, such as playing sports and exercise. The result of neck lift surgery is normally long-lasting, and it has a high success rate. However, there are still possible risks and complications with this procedure, including infection and scarring. Some of the alternatives to a neck lift are Ultherapy, Thermage, and Botox neck lifts.
