When ageing begins, the body starts to produce less natural hydration, which results in skin degradation and visibly sagging skin and lax neck muscles as one reaches their 40s. If you want to achieve a more defined jawline with tight neck muscles and skin, then Necklift Toronto can produce the desired results and take years off from your skin.
How does it work?
Skin tightening, laser treatments, medical facials and injectable protect the skin from ageing, giving it a youthful boost. Despite taking great care of your skin, muscle atrophy would eventually occur and can’t be fixed with non-surgical methods. A surgical neck lift could be either invasive or complex if combined with a facelift. The procedure is customized according to your needs and it is a permanent solution for the ageing neck.
What procedures compliment neck lift?
Facelift, mini facelift, chin augmentation and neck liposuction are all often combined with neck lift as they have shared benefits. As the facelift procedure only works on the mid and lower face, the neck is not technically included. Combining a chin implant with a neck lift can drastically change your appearance. As you age, you might develop submental fat pockets which give the appearance of a double chin. This double chin is often hereditary and can’t be removed by any other away apart from liposuction or direct excision.
What is a mini neck lift?
Patients between the ages of 30-50 who have relatively good neck skin should opt for this as it will restructure your neck with minimum invasion. The neck skin is tightened by removing excess fat and platysmal muscle bands. Small zigzag incision of about 3cm is made under the chin to repair these bands and removing the sign of double chin.
Who is an ideal candidate for the procedure?
Your skin is examined during the consultation and questions are asked about your medical history, lifestyle and the goals that you have so that a customized plan can be designed to make sure that you get the most out of the procedure. If you smoke or use any nicotine products, you would be asked two stop for two weeks before and after the surgery.
What happens after the procedure?
As the surgery is not too complex, you should be aware of the potential issues and considerations that could give rise to infection or interfere with the results. The recovery is relatively comfortable with minimal pain and swelling. Incisions need to be cared for as instructed and you need to avoid any aerobic exercise or bending over and lying flat for at least a week or two. Gravity and high blood pressure affect swelling and can cause discomfort. It is suggested that you keep your head and shoulders elevated. Most people take 1 to 2 weeks off from work. A compression garment will be provided to you to wear around your head and neck area. Most swelling and bruising goes away within two weeks.
