Cervicoplasty

When treating the aging process, time is your best ally. Sometimes the neck can age before the rest of the face. Also, people who have lost weight may notice that the skin of their neck looks loose or falls.

Genetics may also make some people store more fat around the neck and jaw than others, making the chin look bulkier.

All these factors may play a role in the decision of a person to undergo a neck lift with Dr. Elizabeth Ruiz in Cali or Jamundi.

Whatever the reason, people of all ages, young and old may consider having a cervicoplasty performed. After stretching the neck most people may not realize that your cervicoplasty was done.

Please contact Dr. Elizabeth Ruiz for more information about the neck lift surgery or cervicoplasty to schedule a consultation and assessment of your case.

Is the Neck Lift or Cervicoplasty right for me?

The neck lift or cervicoplasty is designed for men and women who care about the appearance of loose skin on the neck, associated with or without fat, and muscle laxity. Unlike a facelift procedure, the patient’s that get a neck lift can be quite young. Common candidates are:

  • Young and older people with significant fat in the neck or excess skin.
  • Younger or older people who have lost significant weight and have a substantial amount of sagging neck skin.
  • Patients who are smokers should stop smoking at least 2 weeks before surgery and not resume after at least four weeks.
  • In general, patients should be in good health and fitness, Dr. Ruiz will evaluate your general health to make sure you are a suitable candidate.

Preoperative for Cervicoplasty

Dr. Elizabeth Ruiz makes all pre-operative recommendations for you to prepare for cervicoplasty.

Neck Lift surgery or Cervicoplasty

The cervicoplasty or neck lift is performed under intravenous anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure, unless it is combined with othermore complex plastic surgeryprocedures.
To start the neck lift procedure, Dr. Ruiz makes an incision in the neck region. The length, position and pattern of the incision will be chosen based on the patient’s anatomy and expectations.

You can also use permanent sutures to keep internal tissues repaired in place after surgery.

After the incisions have been made, excess skin is removed and the neck muscles are altered as needed. The cervicoplasty may also involve liposuction in the area to be treated; the choice can be consulted by the patient and Dr. Ruiz during the consultation.
Once you are satisfied with the new contour of the neck, the incisions are closed with stitches and the area is closed.

Recovery from a Cervicoplasty

Recovery from cervicoplasty or neck lift takes time, and it is important that you be patient with the process. Most people should plan to be away from work one to two weeks. If you are an athlete or physically active, you will have to wait three weeks to resume your activities.

You may need to wear a medical compression bandage to help reduce postoperative inflammation. This is generally used day and night for at least five to seven days and then only at night for a longer period of time.

Results of Cervicoplasty

The results of the cervicoplasty or neck lift are visible almost immediately. The end result may take several months until the swelling disappears completely.
