neck lift surgeries

With advancing age, changes specific to this region begin to appear along the anterior part of the neck, the under-chin area and the jawbone.
In the parts of the mouth corners that go down to the chin, deposits begin to form,
Neck skin loses its elasticity, wrinkles,
The tone of the platysma muscle under the neck skin increases, which causes the neck pit to disappear,
The bands that fix the platysma muscle to the neck loosen, the muscle begins to pile forward,
In the anterior part of the neck, one or more bands are formed from top to bottom due to the collection of the platysma muscle,
Small masses form under the chin due to the loosening of the small salivary glands.
What are Neck Rejuvenation Interventions?
Neck rejuvenation procedures are mostly done as a part of facelift surgery. Although rarely, neck rejuvenation procedures are performed in isolation for patients who do not have aging problems in other parts of the face. The main purpose is to deepen the neck pit and to redefine the lines of the chin border. For this purpose:
Removal of excess neck fat (liposuction),
Skin incision made under the chin and neck muscle (platysma) plication (sewing on each other),
Removal of excess neck skin with a skin incision made around the earlobe.
Increasing the clarity of the chin by placing a prosthesis on the tip,
Removal of excess neck skin by cutting.
Which of the mentioned methods is suitable for me?
Although it will not be easy for the surgery candidates to evaluate themselves; Let’s try to give some clues. When looking at the profile photos, if the chin is behind, placing a prosthesis on the chin or clarifying the chin with fat injection contributes to the deepening of the neck.
With an incision made under the tip of the chin, the relaxed platysma muscle in the anterior part of the neck is exposed and the looseness of the muscle is removed by stitching them on top of each other.
If the above-mentioned issues do not sufficiently correct the laxity in the neck, the deep tissues on the chin and neck are pulled upwards and backwards with an incision made around the ear, and then the excess skin is removed by removing the skin from the same area.
Sometimes, in elderly male patients, all these are not enough. In this case, the excess skin in the front of the neck is cut and removed. The disadvantage of this is that in the anterior part of the neck, the incision scar may be obvious.
Apart from these methods, there are procedures to create tension in the neck with surgical threads, which we can call auxiliary methods. The threads passing through the front of the neck are sewn to the non-stretchable tissues behind the ear. In this way, they carry the neck slack.
