Neck Lift Surgery, also known as lower rhytidectomy, is a transformative procedure designed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the neck and jawline. Typically performed under general anesthesia, this surgery involves repositioning neck tissues, removing excess skin, and addressing muscle laxity to reduce sagging and restore a more youthful neck contour. The procedure generally lasts around 2 hours, aiming to provide natural-looking results with minimal scarring.
This surgery is particularly effective for addressing concerns such as loose or sagging skin, the appearance of neck bands, and excess fat deposits in the neck region. The primary goal is to enhance both the aesthetic appearance and self-confidence of the patient by creating a smoother and more defined neck profile.
Approx. Hospitalization Period: 1 Night, Total Stay in Recovery: 6 nights.
