Neck and Temple Lift Surgery

There is no escaping the ageing process and unfortunately, the biggest signs of growing older, especially the less than flattering ones, occur on the face. Especially around the neck and temple areas. Linia Cosmetic’s surgeons offer neck lifts and temple lifts to help reclaim your youth.

The reason this happens in the first place is due to a reduction in your body’s natural production of elastin and collagen.

Two proteins that play a hugely important role ensuring your skin is supple and smooth.

It is also because the face is the part of your body exposed to external elements such as the sun and pollution.

Therefore, in time, your skin starts to lack the elasticity it once had and wrinkles and other fine lines start to appear.

Add to that the sagging around the neck, chin and jaw that often occurs making you look older than you actually are.

If this is something you are currently experiencing or have done for a long time now, Linia’s highly skilled and professional team of cosmetic surgeons can help with either our neck lift surgery, temple lift surgery or a combination of both.

What Does a Neck/Temple Lift Do?

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.


Neck Lift Recovery Time

It is important to note that although the actual recovery time for your neck lift will depend on your own individual circumstances and the extent of the surgery performed, it could take as long as 4 to 5 weeks to fully recover.

You need to take at least 2 weeks off your work and should avoid exercise and other similarly strenuous activities for at least 3 to 4 weeks.


The Temple Lift Procedure

The procedure known as a temple lift or temporal brow lift has been designed to give the tail ends of your eyebrows a lift, rather than the full brows.

Surgical video cameras or endoscopes are often used for this procedure, meaning only small incisions are used and the risks of scarring are greatly reduced.

It can help to give you a fresh and rejuvenated look.

This procedure is normally performed as an outpatient surgery with a light anaesthetic being used in most situations.

A small incision is placed around the hairline, directly above your ear. Your surgeon will then tighten the tissue underneath.

As well as elevating the tail of the brow, this can also reduce or even eliminate crow’s feet.

Any excess skin around the site of the incision and where the surgeon has been working is removed before you are sutured.


Temple Lift Recovery Time

As a temple lift is not an especially invasive surgery, there is very little downtime following the procedure and you should expect to rest up for no more than around 10 days.

Furthermore, as most of the incisions and sutures are added beneath your hair, they are not readily visible, meaning you can continue your daily activities without feeling self-conscious.

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.
