Why Have a Neck Lift?

Due to the gradual breakdown of the supporting structures and loss of elasticity in the neck skin, the skin on our neck starts to wrinkle and become loose resulting in jowls. This occurs due to everyday life, gravity, sun exposure, stress, weight gain or loss.

Fortunately, there is a solution called a neck lift. Scientifically, it is known as a platysmaplasty or lower rhytidectomy.

A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that tightens the loose skin on the neck. It smoothes out wrinkles and redefines the neck and jawline. If you are interested in a neck lift in Melbourne, then contact us to learn more about the treatment.

Before deciding on cosmetic surgery, it's important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Talk to your cosmetic doctor about what to expect from the surgery and make sure you understand your recovery time and the likely results.

Neck Lift Options

The procedures we offer at our cosmetic surgery for improving the neck area are numerous. They can be performed separately or combined with facelift surgery or other cosmetic procedures to achieve the desired result. Some of the most common options for neck lift procedures include:

Traditional Neck Lift Surgery:

The traditional method of neck lifts involves surgically removing excess fat and skin from under the chin and neck area. Tightening muscles to remove the vertical lines on the neck (banding), is also often part of the process. The remaining skin is reshaped to form a more toned appearance. An incision is made in front of and behind the ear to remove excess skin. Sometimes, this incision is made under the chin when the muscle supporting the neck skin needs to be tightened.

In elderly patients, we remove the loose skin directly under the chin through a gentle zig-zag incision. No incision is made around the ears, which greatly minimises complications in the procedure.

The neck lift surgery can be performed under general anaesthesia or with a sedative-based local anaesthetic. A neck lift generally takes up to three hours to complete.

Neck lift without Surgery: 

thread lift is a non-surgical way to address loose skin around the neck and jawline by inserting special threads to pull the loose facial tissues tighter.

Under local anaesthetic and mild sedative, a thin needle (cannula) is used to strategically insert the threads, which are slid in opposite directions to smooth the skin.

Combining Procedures

Many patients combine a neck lift with another procedure to save time and get the maximum result from a visit. Non surgical facelift procedures are a popular choice as the face and neck are closely connected. Combining procedures can result in a revitalised look. Common procedures are:
Anti-wrinkle injections
Brow Lift
Chin Augmentation
Dermal Fillers
Eyebag removal

Main Benefits of a Neck Lift

Minimal scarring: Extra care is taken to minimise scarring during a neck lift procedure. Small sutures are placed under the chin and behind the ears. Any small scarring will fade over time.

Long-lasting results: With proper care and maintaining a healthy weight and diet, the results can last between 10 to 15 years

Defining Neck & Jaw Line: Removes excess neck skin and fat deposits, resulting in a smoother, more defined neck contour.

Elimination of neck bands: Tightens the muscles in the neck that cause neck bands 

Reduction of jowls: Addresses the loose skin and excess fat around the jawline, reducing the appearance of jowls 

Refreshed appearance: Significantly improves the overall appearance of the neck and lower face

* It is important to note that individual results may vary, and the success of a necklift will depend on various factors such as age, anatomy, and skin quality. Consulting with a cosmetic practitioner is essential to determine if one is a suitable candidate for a neck lift and to discuss the expected outcomes.
