Benefits of male neck rejuvenation surgery
Signs of ageing affecting the neck can often make men look much older than they actually are and can quickly develop into the formation of a turkey neck or sagging jowls. Male neck lift surgery is designed to produce an enhanced jawline with tighter neck skin for a youthful appearance. Many men are bothered by the appearance of a turkey neck, and a neck lift can help eliminate both loose neck skin, wrinkles and vertical bands in the neck.
What areas can a neck lift target?
- Get rid of excess sagging neck skin.
- Reduce or eliminate excess fat in the chin and neck, which may be causing a double chin.
- Tightening of the neck muscles to eliminate vertical bands.
A male neck lift can help to feel much more confident about how they look, and this can enhance their quality of life in both personal relationships and workplace performance.

What is the best age for a neck lift?
Most people who complain of sagging neck skin choose to have a neck lift between the age of 40 and 60. A consultation with a specialist surgeon at Centre for Surgery will help you determine if a male neck lift is right for you.
What conditions can a neck lift target?
A neck lift is the best procedure to get rid of sagging jowls and loose skin affecting the neck. Many patients may have tried non-surgical neck lift treatments without significant improvement.
Can I have a neck lift if I am overweight or obese?
We would recommend having a body mass index below 30 to minimise the risk of complications. Excess fat beneath the chin and neck may not allow the skin to be tightened sufficiently.

A neck lift can be carried out independently without having a facelift or mini facelift for those who have signs of ageing affecting the neck only.
Can men get rid of a turkey neck with a neck lift?
A neck lift is the most appropriate treatment to eliminate a turkey neck. Other non-invasive treatments can be useful to improve fine lines and wrinkles, such as Morpheus8 but cannot get rid of loose skin.
Male neck lift surgery procedure
A male neck lift is most commonly carried out using general anaesthesia and is performed as a day case at Centre for Surgery, which means you can go home later the same day.
The types of incisions used for a neck lift depend on whether you are having a full neck lift or a mini neck lift. A full neck lift involves an incision extending from the front of the ear near the sideburns around the lower part of the air and extending into the posterior hairline. A mini neck lift or short scar neck lift involves making incisions positioned immediately adjacent to the ears only. Once the incisions have been made, underlying fat will be removed, followed by tightening of the neck muscles. Excess loose skin will be surgically trimmed, followed by stitching the incisions and tightening the neck. This will produce a youthful and smooth neck contour. Absorbable stitches are most commonly used and are covered by a sterile dressing which will be removed one week after your procedure at the wound check appointment.
How long does a neck lift take to perform?
Male neck lift surgery takes between two and three hours to perform, depending on the extent of surgical correction required.
What does a mini neck lift involve?
A mini neck lift involves making an incision beneath the chin and around the ears and is designed to tighten the neck muscles to get rid of vertical neck bands, followed by the removal of excess neck skin. The procedure is quicker to perform than a traditional neck lift and has a quicker recovery.
How long does a mini neck lift last?
A mini neck lift can produce results that can last up to 5 years which is similar to a mini facelift, although it cannot produce the duration of results that a traditional neck lift can, which can often last more than 10 years.
Recovery after male neck surgery
It is normal to feel a tight sensation in the neck straight after the procedure, and bruising and swelling can take up to 4 weeks to improve. You will see our post-operative nurses for the removal of any stitches and inspect the incision lines approximately ten days after your surgery. You should focus on getting sufficient rest during the initial recovery period. If you experience any symptoms such as swelling, redness or significant pain, be sure to reach out to your surgeon via the 24-hour number provided. Red flag symptoms include significant bleeding, wound infection and severe pain.

How long should the neck compression garment be worn?
The postoperative neck lift garment should be worn for a minimum of two weeks continuously after surgery and helps to minimise swelling and prevent skin looseness.

Neck lift surgery: A neck lift is a surgical procedure that can remove excess skin and tighten the muscles in the neck area. This procedure can significantly improve the appearance of a turkey neck, providing a more youthful and contoured neck and jawline.
Liposuction: In some cases, excess fat deposits in the neck area may contribute to the appearance of a turkey neck. Liposuction can be used to remove these fat deposits, resulting in a more defined and contoured neck and jawline.
