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.

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.
