Boyun germe, genellikle “hindi boynu” olarak adlandırılan boyun bölgesindeki sarkmış veya kırışmış cildi hedefleyen kozmetik cerrahi bir işlemdir. Bu işlem, temel kasları sıkılaştırarak ve fazla cildi çıkararak boyunun görünümünü iyileştirmeyi amaçlar. Prosedür, daha genç ve belirgin bir boyun şekli sağlayabilir. Tekniklerdeki ilerlemelerle birlikte, boyun liposuction gibi invaziv olmayan seçenekler ve radyofrekans terapisi gibi cerrahi olmayan tedaviler de mevcuttur. Boyun germe, özgüveni geri kazanmaya ve genel yüz profilini yenilemeye yardımcı olabilir.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the neck by addressing signs of aging, such as sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and muscle banding. It involves tightening the underlying muscles, removing or repositioning excess skin, and, in some cases, liposuction to remove excess fat.
Suitable candidates for a neck lift are individuals who have noticeable signs of aging in the neck area, such as loose or sagging skin, visible muscle bands, or excess fat deposits. Good overall health, realistic expectations, and a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon are important factors in determining if a neck lift is the appropriate procedure for you.
A neck lift is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The surgeon makes incisions, usually behind the ears and/or under the chin, to access the underlying neck muscles and tissues. The muscles may be tightened or repositioned, excess fat can be removed through liposuction, and any loose or sagging skin is trimmed and re-draped. The incisions are then closed with sutures.
The recovery process after a neck lift can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and individual factors. Initially, there may be swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and proper rest. A compression garment may be recommended to support the neck during the healing process. Most individuals can return to work and light activities within two weeks, but it may take several weeks to fully recover and see the final results. Strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with a neck lift. These can include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring, changes in sensation, hairline distortion, asymmetry, and dissatisfaction with the results. It’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in performing neck lifts and discuss potential risks and complications with them. Following their pre- and post-operative instructions carefully can help minimize risks and achieve optimal results.
