Neck and Temple Lift Surgery

This procedure is performed to lift and tighten the upper and lower neck area.

A Neck Lift is most commonly performed with an S- Facelift to provide total rejuvenation of face and neck. A Neck lift may also be combined with a chin lift.

The Neck Lift Procedure

The operation is performed under local anaesthesia and sedation and most patients may go home on the day of the surgery. An incision is made behind the ear. The skin is gently lifted off the neck and mobilized. The neck muscles are tightened and neck skin is re-draped over these.

Platyma Corsetplasty is a special technique that we use to create a muscle band across the neck. This produces a sculpted tight neck and well defined jaw line. We use self dissolving sutures that will not need to be removed. After the operation is finished you may sit up and see the result of your neck lift in the mirror, right there and then.

An antibiotic cream is then applied followed by a padded bandage. The bandage stays for 2-3 days and most patients can resume normal activities after that. Some bruising may follow but that can be easily covered with the hair down. The scars are hidden behind the ear and the hair in the neck.

Will my consultation be with a surgeon?

All consultations take place with a surgeon. We believe that only a surgeon can help and advise you on the best procedure to achieve the results you would like.

During your initial consultation, we will ask you about the results you are looking for and explain the procedure so that you understand every stage of the process. The most important thing is that you feel completely at ease in our care and fully aware of the procedure and the resulting enhancement.

Are your consultations free?

All of our consultations are free with no obligation. You will be provided with advice and information relevant to achieve the results you desire.

What will happen after the Neck lift operation?

Your surgeon will see you when you have recovered from the anaesthetic to check that all is well, and you will usually be discharged the same day. You’ll be given medication and post-operative instructions and will wear a small bandage over the incision site for 1-2 days.

Week 1-2
Most of our Neck Lift patients resume normal activities after 4-5 days, and some return to work in this time. It depends on the individual. You will also receive a check-up with our nurse 7-10 days after surgery to check the wounds. The puffiness and bruising usually clears up in 2 weeks and normal make-up may then be applied.

Weeks 8-10
Your surgeon will see you again, usually 8-10 weeks after the Neck Lift procedure for a full post-operative consultation.
