Lower lifting

With ageing our skin flags and gradually loses its tonus and elasticity. Actually, in some people, even at younger age, the muscles in the area of the neck happen to flag and fat is localized. This procedure is called platysmaplastics and performed alone or in combination with another rejuvenation procedure it essentially reduces the signs of ageing.

The Procedure

Through small incisions of the skin, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emil Georgiev removes a layer of subcutaneous fat and tightens the neck muscles.

Duration: 60-90 minutes
Anesthesia: The operation is performed under general anesthesia. The patient may go home or remain under medical supervision in the clinic.

Recovery period:

Pain: Pain for 3-4 days, successfully managed by analgesics
Bruising: appear rarely, for 3-5 days
Swelling: 3-6 weeks; numbness of surrounding tissues for 6 and more weeks

Daily activities and work: Return to work without physical activity – in 10-14 days, physical work – in 21 days
Exercise& Fitness: in 4-8 weeks
