About Neck Lift Surgery
A neck lift tightens loose neck muscles and removes sagging skin (commonly known as a "turkey waddle") to produce a firmer, more youthful looking neck with better contour and definition. Fat is suctioned or excised, muscles may be tightened and skin may be removed. Mr Mutimer performs neck lift surgery in Brighton, Melbourne.
After the age of 40 the face and neck may begin to show the effects of ageing, sun exposure and gravity with deep creases, folds and loose skin. A neck lift will not stop the ageing process however can be effective in restoring a more youthful appearance to the neck and lower face areas.
A neck lift can be performed alone or as part of a face lift, for a balanced result. Neck lift surgery is performed as an inpatient procedure under general anaesthesia. There is nominal discomfort with this type of surgery and recovery from a neck lift is generally rapid - with minimal swelling, and bruising disappearing within two weeks.
