What is a Neck Lift? 

Experience a natural transformation with a Neck Lift that enhances your neck's shape, revealing a more youthful appearance. You can expect a refined, not ‘pulled’ or over-tightened rejuvenated neck contour;  sagging skin, excess volume, and neck bands are meticulously corrected with minimally invasive scars and a quick recovery.

I offer various Neck Lift techniques, customized to your unique anatomy and your beauty goals. In my experience the Deep Neck Lift gives a superior long-lasting result that makes you shine.

Who is an ideal candidate for a Neck Lift?

Dropdown icon
Good candidates for Neck Lift are men and women who are showing signs of aging of their neck.

Deciding whether you need a Neck Lift is a personal choice that depends on your individual concerns and goals. However, several common signs and conditions may indicate that a Neck Lift could be beneficial for you.

1. Sagging neck skin: If your neck skin has started to droop or sag due to aging or after weight loss, a neck lift can help restore a more youthful and refreshed look.

2. Excess neck volume: When excess neck volume causes a less defined neck contour, a Neck Lift can make your neck look smoother and firmer.

3. Familial persistent fat deposits in the neck: that are not responding to weight loss, and which can form a double chin, can be efficiently addressed with a neck lift.

4. Neck bands: When you have one or more unwanted band lines in the neck, you can get rid of them with a neck lift, which removes or tightens these neck muscles.
5. Desire for a refreshed and more youthful appearance: If you are dissatisfied with your current appearance of your neck and wish to restore a more youthful and refreshed look, a neck lift can be transformative.

6. Non-surgical Treatments no longer sufficient: While non-surgical treatments like Botox provide temporary smoothening of the neck bands, they may no longer be effective in addressing more advanced neck bands. In such cases, a surgical neck lift might be a better option.

7. Revision Neck Lift: In case of unsatisfactory results or complications following a previous neck lift, such as asymmetry or insufficient redefinition of the neck contour.

It’s crucial to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to determine if you are a suitable candidate for a Neck Lift. During the consultation, I will assess your facial anatomy, discuss your concerns and expectations, and recommend the most appropriate approach to achieve your desired results.

The ideal patient is in good health and refrains from consuming alcohol and tobacco before and after their procedure, since it really affects wound healing and results.

To achieve optimal long lasting results it is important to have your desired weight before the operation.

Neck Lift Recovery

Understanding the recovery process is essential to prepare for your Neck Lift journey.

Immediate Post-Operative: You may experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications. Also you wear a pressure bandage in the first 2 weeks. If a drain is in place, it will be removed after 48 hours.

First Week: Rest is crucial during this period. Keep your head elevated and avoid strenuous activities. Numbness in the operated area is normal. The swelling will continue to progress to a maximum at the end of the first week. You may experience some anxiety and feelings of panic in this period, thinking your neck will never be normal again. Let me assure you this is normal.  
2-4 Weeks: Most people can return to work and light activities within this timeframe, but vigorous exercise should be postponed.

4-6 Weeks: Swelling and bruising will continue to subside, and you’ll notice significant improvements.

3 Months: The scars have started to become less noticeable, and the most swelling has disappeared, revealing a more refined and revitalized Neck contour.

6 Months: Any residual swelling or tightness will have completely resolved, leaving you with a comfortable and natural feel. By now, you will be able to fully appreciate the results of your Neck Lift.

What causes a drooping Neck or a Turkey Neck?

• People can have an undefined neckline from an early age on (20-30), which often runs in the family.
• Aging and significant weight loss are two other causes that make the neck skin sag, stretch and wrinkle.
• The superficial muscle of the neck, the platysma, can also become more lax and cause vertical bands in the middle of the neck.
• Excess volume can be caused by fat deposits below the skin and/or under the platysma.
• Other anatomical structures that limit neck and jaw definition are the digastric muscles and the submandibular glands in the neck, located under the platysma.

What are the costs of a Neck Lift?

I believe in transparency. The cost of a Neck Lift  varies, and it is essential to understand this important investment in yourself.

• During your consultation I make an analysis of your face and neck, and discuss the possibilities for enhancement of its appearance with you, taking your concerns and expectations into account.

• Depending on your wishes and the specific surgical requirements we make a plan.

• The cost of Facelift procedure varies by the extent of the surgery.

• To maintain harmony in your face, it can also be indicated to perform other procedures like a Facelift, or chin implant simultaneously.

What are the benefits of a Deep Neck Lift?

The Deep Neck Lift has the power to get back your youthful look. A well-executed Neck Lift by an experienced surgeon can turn back the clock, sometimes with decades. This Neck Lift technique creates a natural rejuvenation of the neck, with superior and long-lasting results up to 10-15 years. Patients report increased self-confidence, improved self-image, and enhanced overall quality of life.

What are the risks of a Neck Lift?

Understand the Neck Lift Risks. I believe in informed decisions.

A Neck Lift procedure, like any surgery, has some risks. Complications that can occur with Neck Lift surgery, are infection, pain, numbness, wound healing problems, hematoma (bleeding) and asymmetry, which are all relatively uncommon. Temporary paralysis of a branch of the facial nerve is rare.

As a very experienced facial specialist, I deliver high standard care with the fewest possible post-surgical problems. We are  committed to your safety throughout the whole procedure.  

At what age should I get a Neck Lift?

• Anyone of any age is welcome to undergo a Neck Lift, especially if you are unhappy with the contour of your neck due to sagging skin, excess volume or neck bands.

• Neck Lift candidates fall between the ages of 20 and 65.

Is a Neck Lift painful?

Pain levels associated with a facelift can vary from person to person. While discomfort and pain are common during the initial days after the surgery, most individuals report that the pain is manageable with prescribed pain medication. We take measures to minimize discomfort through proper anesthesia and prepare you for a comfortable recovery.

When can I start working again after a Neck Lift?

• The first few days after Neck Lift you will be able to work from home, but another 5-7 days will be needed to have the most obvious swelling and bruising disappear.

• My advice to patients is to take 10 days off from work.

• After a Neck Liposuction or Mini Neck Lift , you can usually return to work after 7 days.

• It is essential to follow the post-operative instructions carefully to ensure a smooth healing process and achieve optimal results.

When is a Revision Neck Lift needed?

There are several scenarios in which a revision Neck Lift may be considered:

1. Unsatisfactory results: If a patient is dissatisfied with the outcome of their initial Neck Lift, a revision procedure may be recommended to address the remaining concerns or to refine the results further.

2. Natural aging: Over time, the effects of the initial Neck Lift may be affected by natural aging processes. A revision surgery can help refresh the appearance and maintain the desired outcome.

3. Complications: In some cases, patients may experience complications following their initial Neck Lift, such as asymmetry, and scarring issues. A revision procedure can correct these issues and improve the overall result.
