Neck Lift at Fitzwilliam Hospital
A neck lift, also called a platysmaplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes any loose skin along your jaw line and neck. It aims to produce a smoother, wrinkle-free and rejuvenated neck and jaw line. It can also allow you to wear clothes with lower neck lines.
A neck lift is often chosen by men and women who have excess skin on their neck due to ageing, genetics, sun damage, and substantial weight loss. It is often combined with facelift surgery to create a consistent younger looking overall appearance.
A neck lift operation is carried out under general anaesthetic and usually takes two to three hours. Your surgeon will make small incisions in your hairline and behind your ears and stretch the loose skin along your jaw line and neck.
