NECK LIFTING SURGERY
Gravitation is one of the most important reasons of hanging loosely that we have on our face and growing old. And also in time our skin becomes loose depending on quite fast putting on weight or very fast loosing weight or depending on genetics factors. This slackness especially ens up by lines ( around forehead and middle face ) changing it's places down below. And also skin loosen (around below face and neck) is one of the important reasons for the cause of damaging face shape aswell. We generally call this situation as a " degenerating of the face oval " ... The angle ( in between under chin and neck ) gets flat, in this way when we look at the person especially from the profile the person looks older as a result of this situation. And there could be a fat accumulations under the chin which we call "gıdı"...
HOW IS THIS GET DONE ?
During the classical face lifting operation, the operation cuts get prolonged from behind the ear untill the skin with hair. It is being fixed with the interior stitchs by seperating the neck skin and the muscles and stretching the up abowe. And the excessive skin is taken out by getting cut properly and then it is stitched back to its own places again. With this procedure the wrinkles and the hanging parts which take shape around the neck are straightened. The chin angle becomes more clear and we have a more stretched and a younger looking neck as a result of this operation. Neck lifting cuts generally stays behind the ear because of that when we look from the outside we can not see any print mark at all. The fat accumulations under the chin, slackness of the neck muscles and the dangling that is depending on these reasons when all this things above happens then we should get the "gıdı" area straightened aswell. During this procedures the fats either are taken out with the liposuction method with sucking them all or with the method by getting into 3 cm behind to the chin tip by cutting all the fats in that area and taking them out. In this way after the all fats taken out in this area because of this part of the body is being opened so the loose neck muscles can be stitched by gathering them in the middle aswell. And with this procedure the neck muscles earn back their firmness too. After the aesthetics surgery there are not any dangling part at teh body at all because of all the fats being taken out. As a result the neck and the chin can keep their look seperately.
The neck lifting surgery ought to be done in the operating theatre with a full rigging and the team and ıt must definetely be done under the general anaesthesia aswell. The neck lifting surgery generaly lusts for 3 hours. During the operation the drainage is being placed to the patient for preventing the blood accumulating under the neck skin. The drainage generaly stays at the patient for 1 day after the operation and then it is taken out a day after and the patient can be discharged. During the neck operations if there is any under chin entrance then bandage can be applied under the chin aswell. This bandage stays around a week.
