Introduction

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift or lower rhytidectomy targets signs of ageing, excess skin, and muscle laxity, enhancing the overall appearance of the neck area.

The 5-Step Procedure for a Neck Lift:

  • 1

    Our surgeon makes an incision behind the ears and sometimes under the chin to access the underlying structures.
  • 2

    Muscle and Tissue Adjustment to tighten loose muscles and reposition or remove excess tissues to improve neck contour.
  • 3

    Fat Removal or Liposuction to remove excess fat deposits contributing to a less defined neckline.
  • 4

    Skin Redraping of remaining skin over the newly contoured neck.
  • 5

    Incision Closure using sutures, skin adhesives, or other techniques to minimise scarring.

Recovery

What to Expect During Neck Lift Recovery

The initial neck lift recovery time spans the first seven days and is marked by swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort. Patients are advised to rest with their heads elevated, limiting strenuous activities.

As two to six weeks progress, swelling and bruising diminish. Patients may resume activities and use facelift bands for support, although specific instructions may vary. The long-term healing phase (6 months onward) reveals the final, natural-looking results of the neck lift. At this stage, the facelift band usage may be discontinued entirely, guided by the surgeon’s recommendations for optimal outcomes.
