A neck lift is a procedure to tighten loose neck muscles and remove sagging skin to produce a firmer, more youthful appearance. Neck lift surgery is often completed in conjunction with a face lift. This results in a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the neck and face.
A neck lift is generally recommended for adults 40+ who are experiencing issues with skin laxity and contour around the neckline. Main reasons for this are due to advanced signs of ageing or major weight loss.
What to expect with neck lift surgery?
Mr Mutimer will consult with you and review your full medical history and will discuss your particular neck issues and realistic expectations that can be achieved. Neck lift surgery usually takes between 2-3 hours (longer if it is being performed in conjunction with another procedure). It is performed as an inpatient procedure under general anaesthesia.
Benefits of neck lift surgery include:
- Removal of sagging or loose skin that forms under the chin
- Removal of fat from under chin (referred to as a double chin) and from the neck
- Correcting lines that appear on the neck as skin starts to sag
- Restoring a more youthful appearance to the neck and chin
