WHAT IS FACELIFT-NECKLIFT?
A facelift-necklift helps improve the most visible signs of aging through removal and redistributing excess fatty deposits, tightening underlying muscles, and removing sagging skin. The standard facelift addresses the lower 2/3 of the face and the neck. Muscle tightening in the neck improves the effects of facelift surgery.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR FACELIFT-NECKLIFT?
- Individuals with jowl formation (the lower cheeks and jaw line are saggy)
- Individuals with a poorly defined jaw line
- Individuals with wrinkled saggy and fatty neck
INTENDED RESULT OF FACELIFT-NECKLIFT
- A sharper and better defined jaw line
- Improved neck and chin angle
- Less tired look with more youthful appearance
- This does not treat the lines around the mouth and will not improve skin surface defects and discoloration. This will be addressed by a simultaneous skin treatment such as laser resurfacing or chemical peeling.
PROCEDURE FOR FACELIFT-NECKLIFT
- Face lifts are performed in an accredited office facility, outpatient surgical facility, or in the hospital.
- They may be performed under local anesthesia with or without oral sedation, conscious sedation, and general anesthesia.
- The surgeon usually makes incisions in front and behind the ear. This should be discussed with your surgeon.
- Sutures and/or staples are used for closure followed by placement of an elastic dressing around the face and neck.
RECOVERY FOR A FACELIFT-NECKLIFT
- Recovery may be at home with a responsible adult, in a recovery facility, or overnight in the hospital.
- A compression garment may be worn around the lower face and neck for approximately one week.
- Bruising and swelling are normal and may take several weeks to resolve.
- Stiffness in the neck and some soreness with swallowing and eating is common.
- Sutures and staples are removed within 10 days .
- Drains, if used, are usually removed 1-3 days after the procedure.
- Makeup can usually be applied within 1-2 weeks following surgery. If skin resurfacing has been performed, typically a mineral make up can be worm within 2 weeks as well.
