Many people think of improving their facial appearance, but the neck is equally important. A neck lift in Chiang Mai can help you get rid of lines and wrinkles around the neck (turkey neck), double chin and hanging skin under the jaws that give you an aging appearance - and all for considerably less than you’d pay at home. A neck lift can be done alone or can be an added procedure to a facelift, and eyebrow lift or eye bag removal.
A neck lift is medically called a lower rhytidectomy or platysmaplasty. The surgery for this varies a great deal and depends a great deal on the kind of skin you have. Sometimes liposuction alone can help, but if you have sagging skin, then surgery is the only answer. The surgery will typically remove excess skin and may even tighten muscles where required
Cosmetic surgery can be expensive since it is not covered by medical insurance. It makes sense to check out other destinations that offer this surgery much cheaper. And Chiang Mai is a medical tourism hub, with trained plastic surgeons and good medical facilities. With the cost of living in Thailand being much lower than in Australia, you pay a fraction of the price for the same surgery even when you take airfare and stay into account. Plus you get to have a holiday in an amazing place.
Chiang Mai has great tourist attractions in the form of museums, wildlife sanctuaries, zoos, tropical gardens and more. You can also visit rainforests or enjoy scenic waterfalls close by. It is also home to more than 300 temples, some of them ancient, all of them architectural and cultural wonders. You can also stay on the cheap at various hotels and other accommodations including a number of boutique hotels with typical Thai décor and service.
Since surgery carries with it an element of risk, you really don’t want to take a chance. When you get surgery done at a foreign place and you are paying for it, you don’t even have legal recourse should anything go wrong. Neck lift surgery is a delicate procedure and you should not add to your risks. You can do this by ensuring your clinic and surgeon have trustworthy credentials, such as Board certification or membership of international organizations like ISAPS.
When you do your booking through Medical Departures you not only have your appointment in place, but you are also safer than when you book on your own. That is because we carry out in-depth checks on the credentials and qualifications of the doctors attached to the clinics and hospitals we list on our website. We also see their skill, training and experience, because qualifications alone are not enough with experience. We also check out the amenities and ambience at the clinics and hospitals and ensure that they meet international standards of hygiene and use of medical equipment.
If you require only liposuction it can be over in an hour. If you require extensive surgery, then it can take up to three hours. Most likely the surgery is done under general anesthesia and you should stay overnight in hospital for better monitoring. As skin and muscles are affected you may have a problem eating for some time and you should plan on rest for a few days. You will be on pain medications and probably require drains and bandages.
You can plan on a recovery period of one to two weeks depending on how complicated the surgery is. While you will be mobile, you may not want to go out with bandages on your neck and difficulty in moving the face and head. It makes sense to get your holiday in before the surgery and use the remaining time to rest and recuperate. Full neck lift results can take a few months to be visible since bruising and swelling takes some time to resolve.
In Chiang Mai neck lift surgery can cost around AUD 2,500. In Australia you pay a whole lot of more and prices can range from AUD 5,000 and AUD 8,000.
