Two techniques are commonly used to perform neck lift surgery:
Open Surgery Technique: In this procedure, the area around the ear is incised and the platysma muscle is stretched or repaired.
Closed surgery technique: In this case, using the advanced VASER Lipo technique, the excess fat in the chin area and neck is evacuated by using ultrasound waves and the neck area is formed.

Duration of surgery
Depending on the technique used, duration of surgery may vary from 2 to 4 hours.
This procedure can be performed under induction of IV Sedation and local anesthesia or general anesthesia.
Inpatient / outpatient status
Neck lift does not require hospitalization.
Among the possible and very rare complications of neck lift surgery, the following can be mentioned:
- Bleeding and hematoma
- Temporary or permanent hair loss along the incisions
- Facial asymmetry
- Rare nerve damage that can cause lower lip weakness
- Undesirable scars
- Prolonged swelling
- Irregularity and discoloration of the skin
In surgical cases, the incision lines are usually well hidden inside the hairline and in the natural ear lines.
As you begin to evaluate the results of your neck lift, keep in mind that it may take several weeks to a month for the swelling to go away completely, and it may take up to six months for the incision lines to be mature.
Protecting from direct sunlight and adopting a healthy lifestyle helps to perform a neck lift to increase a person’s physical attractiveness.
As the swelling and bruising decrease, the results of the neck lift become apparent over time.
Doing a neck lift not only improves a person’s appearance but also increases self-confidence.
Although good results are expected from this process, there is no guarantee. It may even be necessary to perform additional surgery to achieve the desired results.
