Neck Tightening Surgery
Neck Lift is a surgical option to tighten the neck
Signs of ageing can be hard to come to terms with, especially because your neck is a prominent feature of your body.
There are many surgical and non-surgical treatments that we offer to reduce the look of these signs, and a Neck Lift is one of the most popular for men.
Surgical Neck Lift, also known as Platysmaplasty, is a surgical procedure in which any loose skin along the jawline and on the neck itself is removed. This procedure is extremely effective for treating turkey necks, also known as a heavy neck.
The final result gives men a smoother, wrinkle-free neck and jawline and an overall rejuvenated youthful appearance. This procedure can also be used to remove excess skin following substantial weight loss or reduction of skin elasticity due to genetics, sun damage, or treatment for illness.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
- Increased confidence and self esteem
- Rejuvenated appearance
- Physical transformation, which can take years off your appearance
- Improved shape to neck and jaw area
- Smoothes skin
- Short recovery period
- Best way to remove excess skin around the neck and jaw area
- Contours the chin and jawline
Before Neck Tightening Surgery
You will meet with your Surgeon and Surgical Coordinator before your treatment which will help you to feel comfortable and safe. During your initial consultation, you will be assessed to see your suitability for the procedure and to discuss the possible risks and complications. From that, you will then be asked to sign a patient consent form.
For surgical treatment, you will need to attend a pre-operative assessment between 2-5 weeks prior to your surgery. This is where you will come and meet us again to go through your medical history, take your measurements (height, weight, BMI) and perform a Bloods and MRSA test to ensure you are fit for surgery.
During the Procedure
Depending on the patient’s individual needs, we offer two different techniques to perform the neck Lift Surgery:
Platysmaplasty is performed to correct wattles or vertical bands.
How does this technique work?
Small incisions are made behind the ears or under the chin. Specific neck muscles are then removed to tighten the middle part of the neck.
Cervicoplasty is used to address floppy and sagging skin.
Neck Lift surgery is a day case procedure so you’ll be able to leave after your procedure. Post-Surgery a compression bandage will be wrapped around your neck and head, which will need to be worn for a week. You will get bruising and swelling which will show up around the neck area over the following couple of days post-surgery. This swelling and bruising may feel tight but is nothing to worry about. We offer a 24/7 aftercare service to ensure your post-care is comprehensive.

Neck Lifts are perfect for people with sagging necks, and loss of definition around the neckline and jaw, who are wanting to create a more youthful appearance. If you are unsure about your eligibility for this treatment you will be able to discuss further with the surgeon who will cover the whole procedure and any queries with you in your consultation.
What age do people normally get this treatment?
Most people, who have this procedure, tend to be over 40. However, there isn’t a correct age to have this procedure. It all depends on when you feel that you need this done.
Can a Neck Lift be combined with other procedures?
This procedure alone can be effective in making men look younger but is often combined with Face Lift and Liposuction surgery in order to create a younger overall appearance.
