Question : What sort of risks are there when getting a neck lift?
Answer : Risks of the neck lift include infection, hematoma, and scarring. Infection can occur in any surgery, and this can be minimized with the correct surgical technique. Hematoma is a collection of blood under the skin. This is minimized by making sure that all blood vessels are coagulated during the procedure. It’s also decreased by making sure that the patient is medically fit for the surgery and is not taking any blood thinners or any naturopathic medicines which can thin the blood. Scarring and asymmetries can also occur. Other complications which can occur are minimized by meticulous technique.
