Neck Lift

Compare 19 clinics

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty surgery, is a type of plastic surgery performed in medical centres from all around the world in order to improve the aesthetic appearance of the neck region. Sometimes platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery is used to remove excess tissue as well as tightening the skin and underlying muscle tissue in the region.

Many individuals feel self conscious about the appearance of their neck. Sometimes it can lack definition or it can be bigger than other parts of the body. Sagging skin and tissue around the neck can lead to individuals feeling unattractive or undesirable.

What can lead to an unattractive neck?
Being overweight, even by a few pounds can lead to an unattractive neck. The neck area can be too fleshy or obtuse. On the other hand, losing weight can lead to excess sagging skin in the neck area. Other patients have a genetic predisposition for fatty tissue growth in the jaw area. Age is another factor that can lead to an unattractive neck – the skin loses its elasticity and it begins to sag.

Platysmaplasty surgery or neck lift surgery can be successfully combined with the following procedures:

● Face lift – also called rhytidectomy, it can remove signs of aging and wrinkles from the face area
● Chin augmentation – patients with a weak chin can benefit from this procedure
● Brow lift – this procedure elevates the eyebrows and makes the forehead skin look smoother

Neck Lift Candidates

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty surgery is recommended for patients with one or more of the following:

● Excess loose skin
● Double chin
● Turkey wattle neck
● Excess fatty tissue in the neck area

Am I Suitable for Neck Lift?

Platysmaplasty surgery also known as neck lift surgery is not recommended for morbidly obese patients or patients suffering from heart disease, lung disease or cancer. Restrictions may also apply to patients suffering from other underlying health conditions.

Preparing for Neck Lift

Platysmaplasty surgery patients need to have realistic expectations from the procedure – this is the first preparation step for neck lift surgery. Patients need to stop smoking at least a month before and after the procedure. Green teas, herbal teas, vitamins and aspirin are forbidden at least 2 weeks before and after the procedure is performed.

How is Neck Lift Performed?

Platysmaplasty surgery is usually performed under general anaesthesia, making it practically painless. The procedure itself lasts around 2-3 hours. The surgeon will begin by creating incisions under the ear and under the chin. Some of the excess skin is then removed. Fatty tissue and muscle tissue may also be removed at this point. Different neck lift surgery techniques can be applied to achieve a better result. When the desired result is achieved, the surgeon will close the incisions and the neck lift recovery period can begin.

Neck Lift Recovery

The average neck lift recovery period lasts around 2 weeks. During this time, patients are required to wear a special compression garment that facilitates the healing process and limits any potential scarring from the neck lift surgery. Patients usually return to work in around 2 weeks, but sports need to be avoided for at least 3 weeks after platysmaplasty surgery. Smoking and alcohol consumption during the neck lift recovery period is prohibited, as it can increase the risk of developing post-op complications.

Neck Lift Risks and Complications

Neck lift surgery complications can include the following:

● Allergic reaction to anaesthesia
● Anaesthesia-related complications
● Infection in the neck area
● Hematomas
● Nerve injury in the neck area
● Scarring
● Neck lift surgery revision

Neck Lift Side Effects

Neck lift surgery side effects can include bruising, swelling, burning and tingling sensations. Patients will feel a tightness sensation in the neck area for a few days after the surgery. Numbness is another neck lift surgery side effect. In around a week or two these post-op effects will pass.

Neck Lift Success Rates

Neck lift surgery reviews set the average platysmaplasty surgery success rate at around 94%.

Before and After Neck Lift

Patients will be able to notice their neck lift surgery results in around a week. Platysmaplasty surgery results last anywhere between 5 and 10 years, but patients need to take some precautions in order to retain their results .
