A neck lift or lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that improves signs of aging by removing excess fat around the jaw line, making the neck look more defined and youthful. The surgery aims to improve the signs of aging in the jaw line by removing excess fat around the chin and lower part of face, loose skin around the neck and banding the muscles that created abnormal contours. The neck is one of the areas where the signs of aging start to appear which may be due to many factors such as heredity, environmental conditions or stress. A neck lift surgery is most commonly performed with a face lift surgery.

A neck surgery is most suitable for people having a neck area that doesn’t match up with their upper facial appearance and the procedure is considered among the safest and most reliable cosmetic surgical procedure. Prior to the surgery, the surgeon would consult the patient to avoid certain medication, alcohol, cigarette and other excessively fatty food. The modern technology allows the neck lift surgery to be performed with minimal incisions under the chin area and behind the ears of the patient. With the help of surgical excision or liposuction surgery, excess fat is removed through the incisions made. After fat is removed the incisions are closed with sutures and any excess skin is removed. 

Neck lift surgery is among the safest cosmetic surgery procedure in the world and is generally performed under local anesthesia and the entire procedure lasts between 2-3 hours. The patient is kept under observation for at least 24 hours post-surgery and is required to stay in bed for a couple of days. The recovery is a relatively slower process and takes about 1-2 weeks depending upon the condition of the patient. Even after returning back to the normal life, the patients are advised to avoid any strenuous activity for a couple of weeks and should take proper medication to induce the recovery. There is minimal amount of scarring from the neck lift surgery and the final result appears in about six months after the surgery but the recovery period can be longer if the patient has combined any other procedure along with neck lift surgery.
