TEMPORAL LIFT (Lateral Brow Lift) / NECK LIFT

 NECK LIFT

You also should write down your thoughts on what you’d like to correct.

For some individuals, the neck begins to show age faster than whole face and many times patients only need a neck lift, rather than a full face lift. However, when a Brow Lift is chosen and a Neck Lift is included – these two together can complete the rejuvenation package.

Sometimes, it isn’t age that determines the need for a neck lift, but rather having lost considerable weight or it may even be hereditary feature you’d like to remedy. In fact, many younger people undergo neck lift. Many men and women who have undergone neck lift are often thought to have “lost a lot of weight” or “toned up” rather than having had surgery.

Jowls can form from fatty deposits at the jaw line and laxity in the muscles, the neck muscles may begin to separate and hang, creating “bands” and the skin may hang more that we’d like creating the “turkey waddle” look. If this is the case perhaps you’d like to further research the neck lift.

PERFECT PROCEDURE

* To hide your age by tight the skin and muscle of the neck.

* To reduce the loose look of sagging skin in the neck area and under the jaw line.

* To trick people into thinking you’ve lost a lot of weight.

* To enhance the appearance of your neck A neck lift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures including brow lift, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery chin or cheek augmentation. Combined, these procedures can provide a complete facial makeover. A neck lift gives some people the appearance of lost weight.

HOW WILL THE PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED?

Cervicoplasty

The cervicoplasty procedure is performed to remove excess skin on the neck. An incision is made under your chin and/or behind the ears (or possibly in just one of these locations). The surgeon will then cut back and lift the skin, which will be secured with permanent sutures.

After the Neck lift (Cervicoplasty) a bandage and tape will be applied across the chin or behind the ears (or both) to reduce swelling and discomfort. An elastic bandage will be wrapped around the neck and head.

If your neck-lift requires liposuction to remove excess fat, the liposuction procedure is typically performed first. An incision will be made below the chin to remove the excess fat deposits. The fat deposits will be removed by inserting a small cannula (a hollow tube with an opening near its blunt end) beneath the skin and into the fatty tissue. The cannula is used to break up the fat, and then remove it from the neck area. A bandage will be applied to reduce swelling and discomfort. The doctor may also apply a bandage around your neck and head.

Your surgeon can use different techniques to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing neck. During your first face to face consultation your cosmetic surgeon will explain you in detail the procedure he will use.

ANESTHESIA

Local with sedation or general anesthesia.

SURGERY LENGTH

Between 1 hour and a half and 3 hours.

If you are having a neck lift in conjunction with liposuction, facelift, brow lift, or other surgeries, the time will vary accordingly.

RECOVERY

During the recovery period, doctors usually have patients wear a compression garment for several days. This garment helps improve blood circulation, minimize swelling, and flush out potentially harmful fluids. The compression garment can allow the patient to heal from their necklift faster and minimize the amount of downtime while providing comfort and support to the neck.

Even though swelling takes a few weeks to subside, patients should be able to start seeing the results of their neck lift within a week following surgery. Patients will notice more definition in their neck and under the jaw line.

The duration of the results depend on the type of procedures used. The neck lift procedure can last about seven to twelve years, but this varies from patient to patient. A facelift also lasts about the same amount of time. Patients can choose to undergo another facelift and necklift when they start to notice their results fading. Otherwise, their appearance will revert to a pre-surgical state. Liposuction permanently removes fat deposits from the neck. Fat can still grow in other areas, and that is why it is important to stay in shape even after undergoing liposuction.

The incisions will feel tight and your neck may ache for the first 24 to 48 hours.

Limit exposure to the sun for several months.

PAIN

Your surgeon will prescribe medication for any pain. After 48 hours, most people are more comfortable and will usually discontinue their pain medication.

REMOVAL OF THE STITCHES

It is important during your recovery to keep the sutures clean and well covered in a layer of antibacterial ointment until the sutures are removed after 14 days.

BRUISES AND SWELLING

Bruising may persist for several weeks. The contours of your neck may at first be distorted from swelling, and facial movements may be somewhat stiff.

SCARS

They will be located behind the ears and hidden by the hair.

 

TEMPORAL LIFT / LATERAL BROW LIFT SURGERY

Deterioration often occurs quite rapidly and it can seem that almost overnight the eyes lose their look of alertness. This contributes to a tired looking face which appears older than its years, which is especially distressing to someone who is still young.

Temporal temporal lift, also known as lateral brow lift surgery is one of the new generation of plastic surgery procedures as it works on the outer eye area – usually the first place ageing appears. This ‘outer eye area’ extends down the side of the face to the upper cheek. Ageing in this area has a dramatic effect on the overall appearance of the face.

The surgeon makes a small incision on the temples behind the line of hair growth so that the resulting scar will be concealed. Through this incision he tightens the muscles of the temples, raising the eyebrow’s tails. This adds an exotic touch to the look and restores the eye’s freshness.

After a temporal lift the eyes again look bright and alert, which gives the whole face a fresh and well rested appearance. The procedure lightens hooding of the outer eyelid, reduces deep lines and the look of heaviness around the eyes and restores a firm outer-eye area. The result is entirely natural and patients have found that if people do comment afterwards, they are most likely to say how well and relaxed they look, or ask if they have been away on a holiday.

An additional advantage of the temporal lift is that, by correcting such an important part of the face, the overall appearance of ageing is delayed well into the future.

Indeed, this surgery has a preventive effect if performed while the patient is still young. Introducing special threads beneath the skin that will produce fibrosis in the sub dermal tissues. The threads and the fibrosis make up a structure that sustains the tissues of the area and delays the appearance of flaccidity.

Performed together with eye lift surgery (blepharoplasty) and neck lift surgery, it completely rejuvenates the face and neck.

PERFECT PROCEDURE

* To refresh the look.

* To raises the eyebrows.

* To softens the angry or tired look caused by a wrinkled brow.

* To minimize the appearance of aging for years.

* To modify the arch of the eyebrows in order to, for example, give them a more youthful and feminine look.

HOW WILL THE PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED?

In fact there are several surgical methods to elevate the eyebrows to a youthful, attractive position; in some cases a combination of techniques is employed. But rest assured that only the best method most suited to you will be recommended.

The temporal brow lift is a procedure in which smaller incisions are made in the temple region of the forehead and scalp. Most of the incision is hidden in the scalp with a small portion placed on the side of the forehead. This approach has the advantage of being a smaller procedure requiring less dissection.

ANESTHESIA

Local anaesthesia and complementary sedation.

SURGERY LENGTH

Between 1 hour.

AFTER THE PROCEDURE

You will immediately notice an improvement. A very mild swelling usually takes several days to subside. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities the day after surgery, and you should be able to resume all of your physical activities within two weeks of surgery.

RECOVERY

You will have to rest at the hotel for 48 hours.

Try to take it easy for the first week at least, after surgery. You should be able to.

Shower and shampoo your hair within two days, or as soon as the bandage is removed.

PAIN

Very Low. Pain that is mostly gone by the second or third day and easily controlled by medications.

BRUISES AND SWELLING

The incidence of swelling and bruises may last one week approximately. Sleeping with the head in a high position and applying cold compresses will help you recover faster.

COMPLETE FACE LIFT

TEMPORAL LIFT + NECK LIFT

As we age, our facial skin loosens and wrinkles, and the muscles of the neck may weaken as well. Anything that will cause the skin to lose elasticity will hasten the process, including sun exposure, weight fluctuations and heredity. A complete facelift can address these problems by firming and tightening the skin of the face and neck all in one step. It is most effective for the lower face (jowls and neck). A double chin can be improved at the same time by a neck lift. To effect a more complete facial rejuvenation, facelifts are frequently done in conjunction with other procedures such as upper and/or lower eyelid blepharoplasty, chin or/and cheek augmentation, rhinoplasty.

Contrary to popular opinion, the texture of the skin will not be changed by a facelift. Acne scars, age spots, fine lines and smoker’s creases will soon return to their original texture, no matter how tight the skin is pulled. A facelift will not give someone beautiful skin unless they have beautiful skin to begin with. However, skin treatments such as laser resurfacing or chemical resurfacing can be used in combination with a facelift to improve the texture of the skins and smooth skin wrinkles.

PERFECT PROCEDURE

* To look very natural, rested, younger.

* To look better than if you didn’t do it.

* To look as your favorite star.

The perfect look to feel lively…

HOW WILL THE PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED?

During your consultation your surgeon will examine the structure of your face, skin texture, and elasticity. Sometimes one’s underlying facial skeleton may contribute to their skin sagging, for example a weak chin or small cheek bones, and correcting these problems with chin or cheek implants will greatly improve the results of facelift surgery. He analyzes your skin type and how the upper and middle parts of your face as well as your eyes may contribute to your aging appearance.

The surgeon begins the incision above the hairline at the temples, extending in a natural line in front of the ear, and continues behind the earlobe to the lower scalp. He separates the skin from the fat and muscle below, trimming or suctioning fat from around the neck to improve the contour. He tightens the underlying muscle and membrane, and then he pull the skin back, and removes the excess.

ANESTHESIA

Local with sedation or general anesthesia.

SURGERY LENGTH

Between 2H30 and 4 hours.

RECOVERY

You can do many activities within the first week, and most by at least three weeks.

Patients generally feel a sense of tightness and numbness that should gradually return to normal within several weeks.

PAIN

Pain that is mostly gone by the second or third day and easily controlled by medications.

REMOVAL OF THE STITCHES

8 days to 14 days after the surgery.

BRUISES AND SWELLING
