Neck lifts are common plastic surgery procedures when one gets older. People usually feel that there is unwanted excess skin on the neck and under the chin, known as baggy skin. There might even be issues with fat accumulation around the neck region. The neck is, along with with the face, possibly the most important part in a person’s esthetic profile. A so-called turkey neck and the resulting altered neck appearance can affect a person’s self-esteem. A neck lift can be a good option for someone who wishes to avoid having excess skin on their neck and also achieve a more youthful appearance.
It can be performed in one of two ways: liposuction or local neck lift.

Neck Lift with liposuction
Liposuction of the neck is most suitable for you if you are quite young, don’t have significant excess skin and don’t want to have scarring on your neck.
The recovery time after a conventional neck lift and neck liposuction is short and you can resume your normal activities with work in a few days. You will need to wear a neck bandage around the clock for 5-7 days though. This is done to improve the healing process of your scars. The complications are also mild and are limited to bruises and swelling. There is a relatively small risk of infection but it increases if you are a smoker.
Local neck lift
The procedure is tends to be performed with general anesthetics and your plastic surgeon makes an incision behind the ears along the hairline. Superfluous skin is removed and the musculature of the neck is stiffened. It is sometimes also necessary to make smaller incisions under the chin to extract small collection of fat under the chin.
This procedure is suitable for you who suffers from unneeded skin on the neck line. As the name suggests this procedure is a local operation where the plastic surgeon removes the excess skin and stretches the muscles beneath. The end result is a more well-defined jaw and neck line which makes the face more well-balanced. You’ll recover quickly after the surgery but you’ll have to be prepared to wear a bandage for a couple of days. Forceful movements of the head should be avoided during the first few weeks.
Neck lifts and liposuctions of the neck often have to be done concurrently.
