What is Neck Lift Surgery (Cervicoplasty)?

A neck lift involves the removal of excess skin and fat, combined with tightening of the platysma muscle when required. The incisions are carefully placed under the chin and around the ears. This is done in order to minimise the visibility of any surgical intervention.

The loss of youthful contours in the face and neck can be due to a variety of factors. Some of these factors include heredity, gravity, environmental conditions and stress. Some people feel they are not ready for a full facelift because the upper face is still pleasing. However, many patients will note excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a double chin or “turkey neck” and jowl lines. When the neck area does not match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do neck lifts last?
A well-performed neck lift will last 10 to 15 years however, each individual is different, and results may vary based on lifestyle choices and other factors. Experienced cosmetic surgeons are sure to tighten the skin, remove unwanted fatty deposits, and remove the plication of the platysma muscle. All of these steps are necessary to ensure that your results are long-lasting.
How do I prepare for a Neck Lift surgery?

During the initial consultation for neck lift surgery, you need to inform Dr Niro about all medications you take, especially any medications that thin the blood, such as aspirin or warfarin. Furthermore, you will not be able to drink any alcohol at least 48 hours before the procedure. You will also be required to avoid herbal medications/remedies during the days leading up to the procedure. Also, you need to avoid any anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen, for a few days prior to the procedure, if possible.

You will also be required to stop eating a couple of hours prior to the procedure and you will need to arrive with a clean face, free of makeup and well-cleansed. If you have long hair, it should be tied back in a low ponytail.

What is the recovery journey for a Neck Lift?

There is no need to stay in hospital overnight (unless specifically wanted) following neck lift surgery. Most patients return home within a couple of hours following the procedure. Generally, recovery is fast, and the majority of individuals return to work 7-10 days following the procedure. Furthermore, the results of the procedure shall be evident within six months.

Immediately following a neck lift procedure, there will be swelling and bruising. Most patients report mild to moderate feelings of discomfort and may have to wear a compression garment.

First 48 hours: Swelling and bruising shall increase. For optimum results do not tilt your head downwards and keep your head elevated when sleeping. You can shower and wash your hair, taking care not to rub at the incision sites.

7 days: The majority of people shall return to work if they have not already done so. The incision sites may feel itchy swelling and bruising should start to be less noticeable.

14 days: The check-up appointment will take place. Dr Niro will check that the sutures have dissolved, remove any sutures if required and the incisions are healing.

1 month: There shall still be swelling although your neck should still appear smoother and tighter than prior to the procedure. You can start using skin products, although ideally avoid anything with fake tan in it.

3 months: Bruising and noticeable swelling shall have gone, and your scars should have significantly faded. Your jawline shall appear more defined, and the treated area should look and feel tighter. Massaging of scars should be performed religiously.

12 months: Your scars should be almost invisible, and any residual swelling shall be gone.
