Cervicoplasty: Definition and Overview
Cervicoplasty is a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Karan Chopra, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, to improve the appearance of the neck by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles. This procedure is commonly combined with a facelift to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Cervicoplasty, also known as a neck lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that targets the neck area to address sagging skin, excess fat, and muscle laxity. As we age, the skin on our neck can lose elasticity, resulting in the formation of wrinkles, jowls, and a “turkey neck” appearance. Cervicoplasty aims to reverse these signs of aging and restore a more youthful contour to the neck.
During a cervicoplasty procedure, Dr. Karan Chopra will make incisions behind the ears and under the chin to access the underlying tissues. The excess skin is then carefully removed, and the underlying muscles are tightened and repositioned. Liposuction may also be performed to remove excess fat deposits in the neck area. Once the desired improvements are made, the incisions are closed with sutures.
Benefits of Cervicoplasty
Cervicoplasty offers numerous benefits for patients seeking to improve the appearance of their neck:
- Reduces sagging skin and wrinkles
- Tightens loose neck muscles
- Improves the contour and definition of the jawline
- Enhances overall facial harmony and balance
- Restores a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance
Recovery and Results
After undergoing cervicoplasty, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. Dr. Chopra will provide detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to optimize healing and achieve the best possible results.
Most patients can return to work and resume their normal activities within two weeks. However, strenuous exercise and activities should be avoided for several weeks to allow for proper healing.
The final results of cervicoplasty become more apparent as the swelling subsides, typically within a few weeks to a few months. Patients can enjoy a more youthful and defined neck contour, with long-lasting results that can significantly boost their self-confidence.
