Neck lift at the University of Ottawa
Exposure to the sun can damage the thin, delicate skin on the neck. Signs of aging such as sagging skin, visible neck muscles and uneven contours can also be of cosmetic concern. A neck lift procedure is an option for Ottawa patients. A health and medical history review will ascertain surgical candidacy, and aesthetic objectives will be discussed to create an ideal treatment plan. Neck lift surgery involves a series of procedures that may include liposuction, trimming, repositioning and lifting muscle and connective tissue, and removing excess skin to reveal a rejuvenated silhouette. Incisions are typically placed under the jaw and behind the ears to reduce their visibility. Patients under the care of plastic surgeons at the University of Ottawa will be informed on what to expect pre-, during and post procedure to ensure comfort, safety and optimal recovery.
