Neck Lift and Lower Facelift
The same concepts of the minimally invasive facelift are used by Dr Bukret to perform lower facelift and neck lift.
Similar procedures to this are also called short scar neck lift, or S- lift.
How is the minimally invasive neck lift performed?
This neck surgery consists in making an incision around the ears, adequate to the anatomy of women and men; the incisions follow the natural creases of the skin to achieve the less visible and shorter possible scars.
The dissection in the lower face and neck are limited only to necessary areas to correct sagging skin, neck muscular bands, jowls, and neck wrinkles; avoiding unnecessary trauma to the tissues; and because of this the bruises and inflammation are minimized, as well as the possibility of any complication commonly seen in a conventional neck lift and deep plane facelift like hematoma, seroma, lost of sensibility and motor nerve lesions, facial asymmetries.
What are the results of the mini invasive Neck lift?
The results of this innovative neck surgery are: restoring a smooth neck and jaw line improving the angles of the neck with minimal scars, short period of recovery after surgery, durable results, and fundamentally a rejuvenation effect with natural results.
How long is the recovery time after Minimally invasive Neck lift?
It depends on the extension of the facelift with some individual variation; for a Mini invasive full facelift and neck lift three to four weeks is an average term to do some social activities; during that period the patients progressively return to normal activities.
How long does it take to perform a Neck lift?
A Minimally invasive full face and Neck lift takes 4 to 6 hours of surgery.
What kind of anesthesia is used for a Neck lift?
Dr. Bukret generally uses deep sedation technically known as neuroleptoanesthesia. This is always used in conjunction with a local anesthetic for a comfortable recovery without pain.
How long should I stay in the hospital after a Neck lift?
After a Mini invasive full face and Neck lift less than 24 hours.
Which are the post-operative care measures?
- Bed rest is required for 48 hours post-op
- Physical activity is restricted for the following 12 days after neck surgery
- This general recommendations also apply for Neck lift (pre & post op neck care)

Is it possible to do another facial surgery at the same time like neck liposuction?
Yes; a mini invasive neck lift is frequently combined with a neck liposuction to thinner the neck and improve its angles when considered necessary. It is also possible to combine a mini invasive Neck lift with most of the other facial cosmetic surgeries, such as fat grafting, blepharoplasty (eyelids plastic surgery) or rhinoplasty.
