Neck Lift

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that involves the removal and tightening of sagging skin around the face and neck. The sagging skin on the neck is often referred to as a “waddle”. A neck lift is often performed to accompany a facelift. Other techniques used to improve the appearance of the neck and the face, include liposuction and laser skin rejuvenation. Liposuction can be used alone in someone that has good quality skin without laxity, but has excess fat. As everyone has different concerns, Dr. Shortt will go over the best approach with you to meet your specific goals.

When to consider having this procedure?

In general, candidates for neck lift surgery are aged 40 - 70 years, are in good health and are able to have general anaesthetic, and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

  • sagging skin and loss of elasticity on the neck
  • self conscious of the apparent look of “jowl” or “waddle” on the neck
  • desire a more youthful appearance of the face and neck
  • concerned about excess fat in the neck
  • are undergoing a facelift already

What is the recovery time?

In general, the recovery time following a neck lift surgical procedure is approximately 3-6 weeks, with swelling that can potentially last a bit longer. As with any surgery under general anaesthetic, there are potential risks or complications to consider. During your private consultation, Dr Shortt will take a thorough medical history from you, discuss your surgical options, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, what to expect pre and post surgery and your estimated recovery time.
