(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Overview

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty surgery, is a type of plastic surgery performed widely all around the world in order to improve the pleasant appearance of the neck region. 

Sometimes platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is used to remove excess tissue as well as tightening the skin and underlying muscle tissue in the region. Although non-surgical techniques are often used with products such as laser, tape, cream or botulinum toxin, the surgery offers a more permanent and long-lasting solution. Ultherapy, which is one of the non-surgical lifting procedures, is safe enough to be applied to almost any area of the face and neck. Surgeons may maximize the overall amount of skin firming patients receive and create more lifting by combining this procedure with a thread lift. Scarscould also be minimized in this way. 


Many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their neck because it is obvious. Sagging excess skin and tissue around their necks can make them feel unattractive or undesirable.

What Can Lead To An Unattractive Neck? 

Being overweight, even by a few pounds, can lead to an unattractive neck. The neck area can be too fleshy or obtuse. On the other hand, losing excess weight can also cause excess sagging skin in the neck area. Some patients have a genetic predisposition for fatty tissue growth and accumulated in the jaw area. Aging is another factor that can lead to an unattractive neck, as the skin loses its elasticity, and it begins to sag in time.  


When platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is combined with the following procedures, more successful results can be achieved:

 

● Facelift - also known as rhytidectomy, can eliminate the appearance of aging and wrinkles in the face area

● Chin augmentation - weak jaw patients can have more aesthetic jaws with this procedure

● Brow lift - this procedure is performed to elevate the eyebrows in order to make the forehead skin appear smoother and younger

Preparation

Platysmaplasty surgery patients need to have realistic expectations from the procedure– this is the first preparation step for neck lift surgery. As with any surgery, patients need to stop smoking at least a month before and after the procedure. Herbal teas, herbal supplements, vitamins, anti-inflammatory drugs, and aspirin are forbidden at least 2 weeks before and after the procedure is performed.ed.

How It Is Performed

Platysmaplasty surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, making it practically painless. The procedure itself lasts around 2-3 hours. The surgeon will begin the operation by creating incisions under the ear and under the jaw. Subsequently, a portion of excess skin is removed. At this point, fat tissue and muscle tissue can also be removed. In order to achieve a better result, different neck lifting techniques can be applied to meet the needs of the patient. When the desired result is achieved, the surgeon closes the incision and the neck lift recovery time can begin.

Recovery

The average neck lift recovery period lasts around 2 weeks. During this time, patients are required to wear a special compression garment that facilitates the healing process and limits any potential scarring from the neck lift surgery. Patients usually return to work and their daily routines after approximately 2 weeks of platysmaplasty, but sporting activities should be avoided for at least 3 weeks. It is forbidden to smoke and drinks excess alcohol during the neck lift recovery period as the risk of postoperative complications may increase.

Risks

Neck lift surgery complications can include the following: 
 


  • Allergic reactions to anesthesia 
    Infection in the neck area 
    Hematomas 
    Nerve injury in the neck area 
    Scarring

Side Effects

Neck lift surgery side effects can include bruising, swelling, burning and tingling sensations. Patients will feel a tightness sensation in the neck area for a few days after the surgery. Numbness, pain or poor wound healing are other neck lift surgery side effects. In around a week or two these post-op effects will pass, if it will not, patients should inform their surgeons. 

Success Rates

Neck lift surgery reviews set the average platysmaplasty surgery success rate at around 94%.

Before And After

Patients will be able to notice their neck lift surgery results in around a week. The effects of platysmaplasty surgery last between 5 and 10 years, but patients should pay attention to some precautions in their lifestyle to maintain their results.

Faq

Can Platysmaplasty Surgery Be Combined with Other Procedures?

Are There Any Alternatives to Platysmaplasty Surgery? 
Neck liposuction is an alternative. This procedure can be performed in younger people with less skin in the neck area.


Is Platysmaplasty Surgery Painful?
No, the patient doesn’t feel anything during the procedure.
