My Son was admitted with a very rare autoimmune illness in April this year. The care he was given was superb Prof Dheda, Prof Louw and their team of specialists covered every possibility , diagnosed efficiently and treated effectively. There was time taken to explain everything. The Hospital Matron made allowances for me to spend as much as possible time with my son and also allowed for frequent visits from close family. Mr Daniel Mathew the Hospital General manager is very approachable and interested . The staff was friendly and helpful. Basically every one from reception through admin to ICU was friendly and helpful. I Highly recommend this hospital

Aging is inevitable as you grow older, the good news is that technological advancements in the medical field have now found exemplary ways to slow down the aging process.
Over time, we lose our youthful contours in our faces and down our necks and these changes in our facial features could be due to the following factors:
A full facelift is usually one solution to rejuvenate your youthful look. However, there are cases whereby a patient’s upper facial area still displays a youthful look but excess wrinkling on the neck’s skin and a double chin are apparent. If your neck area doesn’t align with your upper facial appearance, then undergoing a neck lift might be a solution for you.
A Neck Lift, or its technical term Lower Rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that enhances visible signs of aging in your jawline and down your neck. The procedure might be performed on its own or as a part of a facelift.
A neck lift is usually a set of procedures to improve the lower part of your face and is typically done as a part of a facelift. Furthermore, this type of treatment procedure can also treat:
The first step before undergoing the procedure is to consult with your surgeon. It is important that you discuss everything with your surgeon and fully understand the procedure and the result. You should also explore all of your options and alternatives. Keep in mind that a neck lift will not change your fundamental appearance nor will it stop your aging process.
While everyone has the possibility to undergo this type of treatment procedure, the perfect candidates for a neck lift are:

In preparation for a neck lift treatment procedure, you may be advised to do the following:
On the day of your scheduled surgery, it is advisable that you wear loose and comfortable clothing. Wear a type of clothing that you will not need to pull over your head and neck. In terms of anesthetics, you may opt for sedation and local anesthesia or go under general anesthesia.
During your surgery, if minimal contouring is needed, it can be done with liposuction alone. As for a full neck lift procedure, incisions may be done either under your chin or behind your ears. These incisions will be closed with sutures and drains may also be placed before your wounds are bandaged.
A neck lift is an outpatient surgical procedure, however, you also have the option to stay overnight in the hospital. You should remain in the South Africa for at least 4-5 days after the surgery as there will be scheduled follow-up check-ups with your surgeon to monitor your healing. The sutures will need to be removed after a few days.
Typically, most people are able to return back to work in ten to fourteen days. In terms of having a physically active lifestyle like playing sports or exercise, you will need to wait at least three weeks or when your doctor gives you the all-clear.
Note that it will most likely take several weeks to a couple of months for the swelling to fully disappear. You will be given specific instructions as to how to take care of your surgical site and drains, as well as medications to apply or take orally to help with your healing and to reduce the risk of infections. It is very important that you give yourself ample time to heal to get the most benefit from your treatment procedure.
Results for neck lift surgery are normally long-lasting. In general, patients who have gone through a neck lift surgery have been very satisfied with the results.
Although possible risks and complications with this type of procedure are rare and if you experience any of the following symptoms, you will need to consult with your doctor immediately.
