Neck Lift Perth


A neck lift is a surgical procedure performed to improve the appearance of the neck by reducing the loose sagging skin and hanging neck bands. The procedure is suitable for men and women seeking a more youthful looking neck.

Important: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Note: We require a 2 weeks “cooling off” period after your initial consultation before booking any surgical treatment.

How is the Neck Lift (platysma-plasty/ platysma-plication) surgery procedure performed?

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. A small incision is made under your chin in front and/or behind the ear to access the platysma (neck muscle) and tighten it as required. We may also perform liposuction on the neck to remove excess fat deposits in the area. Some excess skin is also removed through the incisions and the incisions are closed using sutures.

Following the surgery, you will have a compression bandage to help decrease the swelling.

Who is a good candidate for platysma-plication surgery?

Patients with loose and prominent neck bands but minimal loose skin are excellent candidates for this surgery.

Patients with loose neck skin (turkey neck) may need face lift surgery in conjunction with platysma-plasty to properly address the sagging neck skin and muscles.


What is the downtime for neck lift surgery?

Initial downtime associated with neck lift surgery may include swelling, bruising, tightness, tingling, numbness and pulling sensation in the area for first 24–72 hours.

Most patients are able to return to light activities within 7 days after the procedure. We advise our patients not to participating in strenuous physical activity for at least three weeks. Scars are very well hidden and continue to fade over time.

Preparation for neck lift surgery

Preparation for a neck lift (and any surgery) involves:

  • Avoiding blood-thinning medication like Nurofen, aspirin (unless for medical reasons), St John’s Wart, fish oil etc. for at least two weeks prior to the surgery. This prevents excess bleeding during the procedure and reduces post-surgical swelling and bruising.
  • Taking a herbal medication called Arnica for reducing post procedural bruising and recovery time. We recommend that it should be taken daily for at least five days before your treatment day. It is available over the counter through most pharmacies and herbal food stores.
  • No alcohol being consumed a day before surgery as it increases the risk of procedural bleeding and hence any bruising and swelling. Alcohol and cigarettes also interfere with the normal healing process, increase the risk of potential complications and prolong the recovery time.

How much does it cost?

Neck lift surgery starts at $3,850 as a stand alone procedure and $9000-$12000 when combined with Mini Face Lift.
