About the procedure

A neck lift is one of the most transformative and longest-lasting treatments to reduce the physical signs of ageing. A neck lift is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin along the jawline and on the neck to provide a more youthful appearance.

Genetics, sun damage and weight loss are all causes for loose skin, although ageing is the most common cause due to the loss of skin elasticity over time. The neck is one of the first areas to show signs of ageing and a neck lift can reduce and reverse these signs.

What are the benefits of a neck lift?

Whether you’re considering a neck lift abroad or at home, a neck lift provides multiple aesthetic benefits including:

1) Cervicoplasty, where excess skin is surgically removed from the neck.

2) Platysmaplasty, where the banded appearance of the neck is reduced by removing, tightening or realigning the muscles of the neck.

The most suitable neck lift surgery option will depend on your problem areas and your desired outcome.

 

Why neck lift surgery abroad?

Neck lift surgery abroad has become increasingly popular, especially for those who live in the UK, Australia and Western European countries due to the prohibitive cost of surgery in their home state. Turkey is one of the world’s hotspots for cosmetic procedures due to the world-class surgeons and facilities at a fraction of the cost. Neck lift surgery in Turkey is very popular due to the large number of surgeries conducted each year, positive patient outcomes, and incentives and support from the Turkish Ministry of Health for medical tourism.

FAQs

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that reduces excess skin and fatty tissue by lifting the skin to improve the definition of the jawline and tautness of the neck area.

There is no set price for a neck lift procedure. However, in the USA it can cost around $6,000 to $12,000, around $5,000 to 15,000 in Canada, between £3500 to £5000 in the UK and around 5000 to 9,500 Euros in Germany.

A neck lift can restore the appearance of tight, supple skin on the neck and reduce the appearance of ‘turkey-neck’. In general, a good candidate for neck lift surgery includes people who have:

  • A double chin with loose skin
  • Loss of volume and sagging in the cheeks and jawline
  • Visible vertical bands (also known as platysmal bands) that hang from the chin towards the Adam’s apple area
  • Moderate to severe appearance of neck creases caused by muscle weakening, collagen breakdown and prolonged sun exposure.

If you’re wondering how a neck lift is done, it’s a fairly short procedure that takes 2 to 3 hours and involves surgical incisions under general anaesthetic.

Prior to the surgery, you will have several phone and/or consultations with our team and a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon the day before your procedure. It is completely normal to experience some anxiety at this point, so our friendly team will ensure you are comfortable with your decision to proceed with your neck lift surgery.

The surgeon will mark your skin using a surgical marker to identify the incision points, areas of focus. You will undergo general anaesthetic and the surgeon will create incisions at the marked areas (around the hairline and under the chin). Liposuction of the area may be needed to remove any excess fat in the area. When the neck is slimmed, the neck muscle is tightened, possibly trimmed, and excess skin will be removed. The remaining tissue and skin will be draped and pulled taut along the neck and closed with sutures.

Neck lift surgery is performed under sedation with general anaesthetic. After your neck lift surgery, you will experience some soreness, tightness and swelling for around two weeks. This can be managed with pain-relief medication.

You can expect your neck lift to last around 10 to 15 years, although the skin will naturally sag over time.

Both men and women can benefit from neck lift surgery. It is most commonly performed on adults between 40 and 65 years old.

Like with any surgery, there are risks and complications.

Some risks may include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Neck weakness
  • Headache
  • Infection
  • Prolonged numbness
  • Nerve injury
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Temporary or permanent hair loss around the incisions

We take every precaution to minimise risks and ensure you get the experience and outcome you're looking for.

Once any residual swelling and bruising eases, your neck will appear much tighter, smoother and more slender. Incisions will be carefully hidden in the hairline and under your chin and these will fade over time. You will have a more youthful appearance with no more turkey-neck!

This is a non-invasive neck lift that helps reverse the signs of ageing along the lower face, jawline and neck. It involves a botox injection into the vertical neck muscles that run from the bottom of your face to the collarbone. It requires no downtime and a minimal recovery period, although results are not long-lasting and you may require treatment every 6 months or more.
