What does a neck lift involve?
Neck lift surgery is most commonly performed under a general anaesthetic. The surgeon will create incisions which curve around the back of the air and extend into the hairline. This will allow the skin of the lower face and neck to be gently lifted away from the underlying tissues. The desired amount of loose skin is then surgically removed. The incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches. A surgical neck lift is designed to get rid of sagging skin affecting the lower part of the face and neck. Any scars after a neck lift are virtually invisible as your surgeon will take care to position the incisions in natural skin folds where possible. Scars can also be covered with concealer make-up and will appear as a faint white line 6 months after surgery.

How long do the results of a neck lift last?
When undertaken for appropriately selected patients, a neck lift can produce results that last in excess of 10 to 15 years. The results can be prolonged even longer for non-smokers and for those who minimise excessive sun exposure. Getting the best neck lift results depends on choosing a surgeon skilled in tightening the skin of the neck and being able to get rid of excess fat. This will help to ensure long-lasting results of a surgical neck lift.
How much do a combined facelift and neck lift cost?
Many people choose to combine a neck lift with a facelift or rhytidectomy. Combined facelift and neck lift surgery is a major surgical procedure, and prices start from £8000 at Centre for Surgery. The final cost of a facelift and neck lift cost will depend on certain factors, including the amount of surgical correction required, the reputation of the clinic and surgeon, and the location of the clinic. Clinics in London generally charge slightly higher prices due to the high cost of living in the capital.

How long does it take to recover from a neck lift?
The time taken for neck lift recovery varies between patients. In general, we would recommend you avoid any strenuous activities for the first week after surgery. You should also try to sleep propped up on a few pillows to help speed up the resolution of any swelling. Keeping your head in a neutral position will help to avoid any undue strain on the incision lines. You should also try to avoid any excessive movements of the neck during the first week to ensure proper healing. Neck skin is known to be particularly thin, and you should avoid applying cold packs against the neck as this has been known to affect blood flow and could result in potential skin necrosis.
What is the average recovery time for a neck lift?
In most cases, the recovery time for a neck lift is shorter than most people think. Patients can often go back to work after one week as most of the bruising will have disappeared during the first week. Swelling may take longer to resolve, and 3 to 4 weeks is a typical timeframe for most post-operative swelling to disappear. It may take up to 3 months for neck lift swelling to disappear, and patients can then look forward to enjoying the final results of their neck lift procedure.
What are the potential risks of neck lift surgery?
As with any type of invasive surgical procedure, a neck lift involves certain risks which patients should be aware of before deciding to embark on the procedure.
