Neck Lift Surgery Melbourne

A Surgical Neck Lift Provides a Smoother, More Contoured, and More Youthful Neck, With Long-lasting and Natural Results.

About Neck Lift Surgery

A neck lift tightens loose neck muscles and removes sagging skin to produce a firmer, more youthful looking neck with better contour and definition.

After the age of 40 the face and neck may begin to show the effects of ageing, sun exposure and gravity with deep creases, folds and loose skin (commonly known as a “turkey waddle”).

A neck lift will not stop the ageing process however can be effective in restoring a more youthful appearance to the neck and lower face areas.

During your neck sculpting surgery, fat is suctioned or excised, muscles may be tightened and skin may be removed.

Each technique is performed slightly differently in order to address your unique concerns or needs.

A neck lift can be performed alone or as part of a facelift, for a balanced result. Other complementary procedures may also include eyelid surgery, brow lift, and facial implants.

There is nominal discomfort with this type of surgery and recovery from a neck lift is generally rapid – with minimal swelling, and bruising disappearing within two weeks.

What Does a Neck Lift Address?

It’s a well-known fact that the neck is one of the first visible signs of ageing.

A common trouble spot for those looking for a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance, the neck ages faster than other parts of the body mainly because the neck skin is typically thinner than other areas, and as such loses elasticity and volume faster. It also takes on that tell-tale crepe-like texture.

A neck lift can address a variety of problems, each which helps restore a fresher and more youthful visage, including:

  • Loose neck skin
  • Excess skin in the lower part of the face (usually causing jowls)
  • Fatty deposits (including a “double chin”)
  • Abnormal neck contours

Speak to your plastic surgeon to discover how a neck or facelift (or both) may address your specific concerns.
