A neck lift is performed to significantly reduce the appearance of sagging skin under the jaw and is intended to provide a natural, attractive and more youthful appearance with a better contour. Many factors play a role in the ageing of facial skin. These include the physical environment (sun, wind), the type of skin (elasticity, thickness), the complexion (pale, dark, ruddy), weight alterations, nutrition, smoking and menopause.
A neck lift addresses common concerns like ‘turkey wattle neck’, excess skin and excess fat beneath the chin and on the neck.
The procedure gets its name, platysmaplasty, from the platysma muscles found on each side of the neck that extend from the corner of the mouth to the upper part of the shoulder. With age, lack of exercise, poor posture and fat deposits, your platysma muscles contribute to vertical skin folds and a double chin. A neck lift procedure will tighten up the muscles, remove excess skin and fat to give you a more youthful-looking and firm neck and chin area.
The neck lift procedure begins with your surgeon making a small incision under your chin and other incisions possibly in front of and/or behind the ears. These allow access to the platysma and any fat deposits on your neck. The muscles can be tightened and excess fat removed surgically or via liposuction. The incisions that are made near your ears allow the surgeon to remove excess skin.
Revision/Corrective Surgery Cover
All Somnio’s major hospitals in Thailand offer a client guarantee policy to cover revision operations in Thailand should it be deemed necessary by the hospital’s board. If revision surgery is required, as a result from your elective surgery in Thailand, the Hospital Board will offer full or partial contributions towards the cost for the operation (could include: flights, accommodation and surgeon/theatre costs).
In addition to the client guarantee, if flights and accommodation are NOT covered by the hospital for the revision surgery, Somnio offers a Return Travel Warranty, that can be purchased separately, covering you in the unfortunate case that you are required to return to Thailand and the travel portion has not been covered. This warranty will cover flights and accommodation for the duration of stay required by the Hospital board for the surgery.
Additional elective medical coverage is also available through our partners at Global Protective Solutions. GPS provides benefits and services for both travel related accidents / illness as well as a host of benefits in the event of a medical complication that is a result from your elective procedure.
