Neck Lift

Neck Lift (Lower Rhytidectomy)

A neck lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is performed to improve the visible sign of aging and the appearance of the neck and jawline. It is also known as a lower rhytidectomy. This procedure involves removing excess skin, tightening the muscles, and removing any excess fat from the neck and chin area.

A neck lift can help to:

    • reduce sagging skin
    • eliminate the appearance of jowls
    • create a more defined jawline.

If you feel self-conscious about the signs of aging such as loose skin, wrinkles, and sagging in the neck and jowl area, then this may be the treatment for you. Your surgeon will discuss with you the best options and may recommend other treatments.

Neck lifts can also be performed for reasons other than cosmetics, such as weight loss or genetics. The specifics of the procedure will depend on your needs and goals, and it is important to consult with one of our Consultant Plastic Surgeons to determine if a neck lift, mini facelift, or full facelift is the best procedure for you.

If you are unhappy about the appearance of your lower face and neck area La Belle Forme is able to offer you a comprehensive service that will be tailored to meet your individual needs. From initial consultations through to surgery and aftercare, you can rest assured that you will receive the very highest standards of care and support.

As a leading UK cosmetic surgery group, we offer a full range of facial and body surgery procedures so rest assured that we will find the best solution to help you achieve your desired image.

While it can be a very exciting time prior to surgery it can also make for an anxious time too, and this is perfectly normal. At La Belle Forme, our surgeons take great care to carefully answer each and every question patients may have. Your surgeon will also explain what the neck lift procedure will involve, recovery times, and how we will achieve your desired look.

We offer patients consultations from our Glasgow clinic.

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The exact steps of the procedure may vary depending on the individual’s needs and the surgeon’s preferred techniques, but generally, a neck lift involves the following steps:

  • Incisions: The surgeon will make incisions behind the ears and under the chin to access the underlying tissues. The length and location of the incisions may vary depending on the extent of the surgery and the specific goals of the procedure.
  • Muscle tightening: The surgeon will then tighten the underlying muscles and tissues to create a more youthful, defined appearance.
  • Fat removal: If there is excess fat in the neck and jowl area, the surgeon may also remove it through liposuction or other techniques.
  • Skin removal: The surgeon will remove any excess skin and pull the remaining skin taut over the neck and jawline.
  • Incision closure: The incisions will be closed with sutures or other methods, and bandages will be applied to the area to protect and support the healing tissues.

The entire procedure typically takes 2-3 hours, and most patients are able to return home the same day. Recovery time may vary.
