Neck Lift Surgery

The elegance of a neck contour in a Female and  strong jaw line in a Male cannot be underestimated. For centuries sculpters and painters have depicted beauty with these features. The first signs of ageing in some people distort this contour. A Neck Lift is the solution for a “turkey neck” or neck with loose skin, wrinkles and platysma bands that cause the neck to lose shape. At Artiste Plastic Surgery patients have sought a Neck Lift to restore the elegant transition from Face to Neck. This results in a sharp neck line with better contour and will give you confidence from every angle.

Technically A Neck Lift is a plastic surgery procedure that may be performed alone but is often part of a Facelift procedure with an additional small incision under the chin. The neck muscles, glands and fat are repositioned through this access incision to produce a harmonious pleasing neck contour.

At Artiste Plastic Surgery a neck lift is performed for the following reasons:

  • As part of a facelift procedure
  • To rejuvenate the neck
  • To form a youthful cervico-mental angle (Chin and Neck relationship)
  • To address active Platysma bands
  • To create a more pleasing aesthetic appearance of the neck

Learn about the types of facelift procedures Dr Jack Zoumaras offers and why patients commonly consider a neck lift.


Neck Lift Alone

In few cases a patient may seek only a neck lift to address:

  • Cervical skin laxity
  • Fat deposits in the neck region

This can be achieved with liposuction alone with the addition of a sub-mental and/or short post-auricular incision to address excess cervical laxity.

Neck Lift as Part of a Facelift

A sub-mental incision (in addition to the facelift incision) is used to access the neck structures. The following can be performed depending on anatomy and age changes:

  • Removal of fat (Supra-platysma, Sub-platysma)
  • Trimming of Digastric muscles
  • Trimming of Submandibular gland
  • Platsymaplasty (suturing of muscle together)
  • Platsyma-myotomy (incising of the muscle to rid of active bands)
  • Removal of excess skin through the facelift incision
