The neck is the part that connects the head with the rest of the body. While it may not be the first seen when meeting somebody, unlike the face, it is still noticeable. That’s why if there are any extra fat or loose skin in the neck people will see it.
Turkey neck is used to label loose skin and fat that resembles the neck of the turkey. That’s why a lot of people want to get rid of it. Fortunately for them there’s the cosmetic surgery procedure called a Neck Lift.
This procedure removes the excess fat in the neck and jaw area. The loose skin is often tucked in to tighten it so that your neck doesn’t look like a turkey’s anymore. Since it only covers a small portion of the whole face area it doesn’t take that long.
Because of its small coverage most operations are done in an out-patient setting. This means that after the surgery a patient can simply go home to recuperate. Depending on the magnitude of the operation the procedure can last anywhere between an hour to three hours.
The procedure is pretty painful since there will be incisions and liposuction involved. That is why anesthesia is used to enable the patient to relax. Even during the recovery period the doctor will also prescribe pain killers so rest assured that the pain will be bearable.
The Lane Cove Cosmetic Surgery neck lift procedure involves liposuction. This is to remove the fat deposits that have made their home in the neck. The doctor will usually make incision just behind your ear and under the chin where the doctor will then insert the vacuum suction tube.
The vacuum will then suck the fat out from the areas around the jaw line and underneath the chin. Depending on the situation no nipping and tucking is needed. If the skin is still flexible and elastic it will conform to the new contour of the neck to show off the new definition of that area.
If it is needed then a neck lift will be performed. This is to get rid of the loose skin that has been released when the fat was taken out. There are two kinds of neck lifts – the full and the mini.
The mini is done if the person is pretty much in his or her ideal weight. Because not a lot of fat is taken out the skin won’t be as loose.
On the other hand, a Neck Lift is needed if the person is overweight. Between the weight loss and the liposuction the skin would be so loose that everything within the neck area needs to be adjusted in order to really show off the new definition of the neck.
