The neck is one of the first parts of the body that show signs of ageing. Most people that notice a “turkey neck” or a neck with loose skin and wrinkles turn to cosmetic clinics for a plastic surgery neck lift. This procedure helps patients achieve a well-contoured and firmer neck. If you’re interested in undergoing a neck lift and are wondering if you are a good candidate for the surgery, Artiste Plastic Surgery discusses some common issues that will benefit from the procedure:
Loose neck skin
A common sign of an ageing neck is sagging skin, vertical muscle bands or excess fat deposits. A neck lift surgery restores the elegant transition from face to neck, resulting in a sharp neckline with a better contour. Having a unique and technical understanding of the anatomy of the ageing process takes years of training and experience, so it is essential to consult only with a trusted professional, like Dr Jack Zoumaras, for the best possible results.
If you have gained weight that resulted in having a double chin with the excess skin hanging instead of just excess fat, a neck lift surgery would be right for you. This procedure gets rids of fat, loose skin and muscles around the neck – resulting in a firmer, youthful-looking neck.
Some neck lift patients never had a strong jawline, even in their youth. If you want a defined jawline, our neck lift surgery can address this concern by using our Structural fat grafting along the jawline or use of a chin implant.
Good health condition
A neck lift surgery can be done on physically and mentally healthy patients aged 30 to 70. Ideally, the potential patient should be a non-smoker or is amenable to quit smoking before the procedure. The neck lift procedure benefits last for longer in younger patients, but results in the older patients are more recognisable.

Our procedure will be illustrated and you will be given a detailed instruction sheet on the expected postoperative course and potential complications during your consultation.
