What is Revision Neck Lift surgery?
Revision neck lift surgery refers to a neck lift procedure that is performed on a patient with history of previous neck lift. A patient may be a candidate for revision neck lift if they are seeking corrective surgery to improve a new or persistent deformity after fully healing from recent surgery or repeat surgery several years following primary neck lift. While neck lift surgery delivers permanent results, the surgical results may only last for several years out and then start to fade since the neck continues to age with time. Revision neck lift surgery is typically much more challenging compared to primary neck lift given that the neck anatomy is altered with scar tissue present. The risks of bleeding and poor healing as well as needed surgical time may be higher with revision surgery.

The ideal candidate for revision neck lift is a healthy non-smoking patient who has no remarkable medical or surgical history, does not take blood-thinning medications, and demonstrates strong bony facial features, normal hyoid position, and good skin elasticity. They should demonstrate new or persistent neck deformities from recent surgery or recurrent aging neck issues years out from prior surgery. Good candidates for revision neck lift should demonstrate realistic expectations regarding revision surgery goals and outcome and be committed to long term follow-up to ensure the best surgical results.
