Everything you need to know about getting a neck lift in Chester

neck lift

If you’re considering a neck lift in the Chester area, you need to research the procedure, aftercare, and a great surgeon to do the job.

Many individuals neglect the appearance of their neck; however, the neck is one of the first places where signs of age start to show. Additionally, sun damage or extreme weight loss may contribute to the skin on a person’s neck looking loose or sagging.

While we go to great measures to preserve or improve the appearance of our facial skin, it is equally important to tend to the neck. If your neck skin appears to have lost its natural elasticity and sags, or if there is excess skin or fat that you wish to remove, there are a number of excellent solutions available, including neck lift surgery.

Neck lift surgery is one of the most transformative procedures in cosmetic medicine. By removing excess skin and fat deposits from the neck area, and possibly restructuring the underlying muscle, a qualified plastic surgeon can dramatically rejuvenate a patient’s appearance.

The procedure, itself, is one of the safest and most reliable in plastic surgery. Indeed, with the advances made in surgical technology over the past decade, modern neck lift surgery can be performed with minimal incisions and scarring while producing exceptionally natural-looking results.

What will happen during a neck lift?

Typically, the procedure will last one to two hours. During the procedure, an incision is made below the ear lobe, extending behind the ear and then along the hairline and the mastoid.

An incision under the chin may also be made to deal with the Platysma muscle. Excess fat is then removed, using liposuction is desired, inner edges of platysma muscle are stitched together and the outer part of the sheet of platysma muscle is attached to the mastoid. This gives a very youthful appearance of the area under the chin and upper neck with lasting results.
