Neck lift surgery usually starts with an incision placed behind the ear. Since this incision scar is just under the scalp and is in a very good area in terms of skin quality, it gives good results in most of the patients. The same is true for incision marks when the ear is removed. An important point here is the presence of patient-dependent factors in the form and amount of scar development. On the other hand, while very good scars can be obtained in almost all patients, the amount of scarring will be different, as everyone's wound healing is different.
Factors affecting this include a person’s genetics, dietary habits, regularly used drugs, and even smoking. After the incision made behind the ear, the neck skin is lifted from both sides until the midline. During this procedure, there is no visible scar on the neck, except for the incisions behind the ear. However, in some cases, if there is muscle laxity, it may be necessary to use a few cm long incision under the chin for the repair of the jowl area.
For the first few nights, it is important to sleep in a slightly sitting position with a high pillow in order to prevent edema. The patient is discharged the next day. It is normal to have facial swelling and mild bruising for about two weeks. A special face corset is used during this time. At the end of two weeks, the remaining stitches are removed if they have not dissolved. On the fifth postoperative day, the patient is allowed to wash his face. Positive results of the surgery begin to be seen with the reduction of swelling. The result of the successful neck lift surgery is extremely satisfactory for the patients and the results of the surgery are permanent.
The process of transferring healthy hair follicles to areas where the hair follicle is no longer active and where balding occurs, using microsurgical methods is called hair transplantation. Hair transplantation is a natural and permanent solution to the problem of thinning and baldness in people who experience hair loss or hair loss.
Plastic surgery refers to any type of surgery performed to reconstruct or change the appearance of a body part or characteristic.
