The Risks of a Neck Lift

All types of cosmetic procedures carry a certain amount of risks. One of the greatest risks associated with a neck lift is that of injury occurring to the nerves that control the muscles in this sensitive area of the body. Another concern is that of scar tissue being very obvious to the human eye as this is an area that can heal very well or it can heal very slowly. No two people heal exactly the same way and some people may have scars that lighten, fade and go away much sooner than other people. Be aware that scarring is a reality of any surgery and a neck lift is no different. If the thought of scarring bothers you a great then a neck lift might not be a good choice for you.

The two most common risks with all surgeries, cosmetic or otherwise is that the patient will suffer an adverse reaction to the anesthesia or will develop an infection at the surgical site(s). Some people wake up from surgery feeling groggy and sick to their stomachs. This is usually the result of an unfavorable reaction to the anesthesia and it should be a temporary state. It is rare but some people experience an allergic reaction to the anesthesia that has more serious consequences then a sick stomach. It is essential that the plastic surgeon is made aware of your complete medical history and all of your known drug allergies.

Another risk factor when it comes to a neck lift is hematoma or the accumulation of blood and/or fluid under the surface of the skin. When this happens if it is excessive enough it can necessitate a second surgery needing to be performed.

There will be both bruising and swelling after undergoing a neck lift and this could last for a few days up to a few weeks. The worst of both should begin to show improvement after the first week following the surgery. Some patients have more swelling than bruising while for other patients it is the reverse. It is common to feel a variety of strange sensations in the neck area as it begins to heal. Do not be alarmed if your neck feels tight or tingly. Some neck lift patients report feeling such sensations as pulling or burning. Numbness may be felt at this time as well. All of these sensations are perfectly normal and are not a cause for concern unless they continue to get worse over time or persist for too long.

As previously mentioned, the risk of infection is always something to be mindful of. Taking your temperature is a good way of determining whether or not you are developing an infection. If you find that you have a fever get in touch with your doctor right away for treatment. If you notice pus or any other kind of discharge coming from the site of the incisions then you are likely developing an infection and should visit your doctor as soon as possible.
