DOUBLE CHIN REMOVAL & NECK LIFT IN KASSEL
Wrinkles do not only appear on the face, but can also affect the neck. The so-called turkey neck is particularly common. This is not only characterised by sunken tissue and pronounced vertical wrinkles on the neck. Often there are also fat deposits under the chin - a double chin develops. A neck lift at the Noahklinik Kassel helps to combat these aesthetic complaints.
Your specialist for plastic and aesthetic surgery
Prof. Dr. med. Ernst Magnus Noah is a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery in Kassel. Before Prof. Dr. Noah set up his own practice, he was the head physician of a clinic department for plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery for many years.
He is a specialist in neck and facial procedures such as Facelift, eyelid lift and liposuction. Take advantage of his years of extensive experience and knowledge gained over 20 years.
PROCEDURE OF A NECK LIFT TO REMOVE A DOUBLE CHIN
Depending on the initial findings, Prof. Dr. Noah carries out various treatments. In the case of a slight double chin, a small liposuction is usually sufficient. The situation is different with severely sagging tissue in the neck area. A surgical neck lift then usually promises the best possible result.
The classic neck lift is performed under general anaesthetic and takes between three and five hours. The plastic surgeon first makes a horizontal incision below the chin. Excess tissue is then removed. In addition, the neck muscles can be tightened. This is particularly useful if the tendons in the neck are very prominent. The tissue can also be tightened through an incision behind the ear. Then the scars are well hidden afterwards.

NECK LIFT AND FACELIFT AT THE NOAHKLINIK KASSEL
In some cases, a tightening of the neck alone is useful. Often, however, an entire facelift must be performed to create an aesthetic whole. With an SMAS facelift, the neck no longer has to be tightened separately. Prof. Dr. Noah decides individually whether a single tightening or a complete facelift makes sense.
These include antibiotic prophylaxis shortly before the procedure, but also nipple protection and the recommendation not to place drains, as these can be an entry point for bacteria. Adherence to the 14-point plan reduces the risk of inflammation in the area of the implant as well as the risk of capsular fibrosis. We will be happy to present the details to you in our clinic.
CORRECT BEHAVIOUR AFTER A NECK LIFT
A neck lift is not a minor procedure. That's why rest and relaxation are especially important in the days following the procedure. Patients who only need a Liposuction but are usually quickly fit again. After an operation, you stay between one and three days at the Noahklinik in Kassel. Immediately after the operation, we put on a bandage. This protects the operated tissue and can be removed after five days. Swelling and bruising are normal and no cause for concern. Avoid sport and strenuous physical activity for up to three weeks after the treatment. As soon as the wounds have healed, you can start caring for the scars. This way, only fine scars remain after the procedure, which are almost invisible.
