Frequently Asked Questions

Patients can typically have a neck lift performed and go home the same day.

Patients can have the procedure under local anaesthetic & sedation or can be asleep with a general anaesthetic. 

The incision for a neck lift is directly under the chin to deal with the bands at the front of the neck and the fat, and an incision just under the ear that extends to the groove behind the ear that helps deal with the loose skin.

When patients come into the clinic, our UK-trained plastic surgeon makes a full assessment of the patient. 

This includes any relevant history, including reasons for surgery and a thorough examination of the neck and lower part of the face. 

Part of this process is explaining to the patients what can be done, why, and what to expect, based on each patients’ anatomy and suitability for each type of neck lift.

Patients who either do not have or have never had the angle between the jawline and the neck (cervico-mental angle). 

Colloquially, this may be known as a turkey neck. There may be volume from fat under the chin. 

If there is minimal fat, the ageing process may mean that there is loose skin with bands running across the front of the neck, typically from the chin to the collarbones.  

Some patients may have a genetic predisposition to this (Young people with necks) or most commonly, age-related loosening of the skin.

Patients tend to notice an immediate improvement in the neck both in terms of the area feeling tighter in comparison to how lose it was, and fewer creases in the skin. 

The swelling after surgery occurs for the first 48 hours and after this stage, it improves. 

We see patients one week after surgery to check on the patients and remove any visible stitches. By 2 weeks patients feel brighter and fresher. 

Once safe, patients are let out of the clinic with close follow up arranged to ensure improvements would happen as anticipated.

One alternative to a surgical lip lift is the use of fillers which may be either synthetic which is temporary or use of natural ones such as fat. 

This can provide a method to deal with the lost volume but does not adequately address the increased distance between the base of the nose and lip.
