What is the neck lift procedure?

A neck lift can take around two hours to complete, under a general anaesthetic. If it is performed along with a face lift then this time will increase.

It means an overnight stay in hospital.

Your surgeon will make small incisions underneath your chin or behind your ears. He or she will move and tighten loose folds of skin around the jaw and neck. Once he/she has done so he/she will secure this newly tightened skin with stitches or tissue glue.

There are two techniques with this – platysmaplasty which corrects the neck muscles and cervicoplasty which firms and tightens loose skin.

Liposuction can be used in combination with this to help remove any excess fat.

In order to reduce any scarring, your surgeon may use endoscopic or keyhole techniques.
