Considering a neck lift in London?

There are many reasons to consider a neck lift, including facial descent, sagging jowls, excess skin, loose skin, skin laxity and simply ageing. Undergoing any surgical procedure is a big decision to make and many considerations should be taken into account before taking any next steps. 

London patients will be required to stay overnight for their surgical procedure and may not be able to return to work for two weeks following surgery. On occasion, it may be possible that less invasive alternatives are available to you depending on your circumstances – this will be explored during your initial consultation.

Neck lift procedures can help to improve an aging neck by targeting drooping skin in the neck region. This leaves many patients with a more youthful appearance that helps to disguise the signs of ageing.

Is a neck lift suitable for me?

The neck lift procedure addresses the signs of ageing in the neck area that develop in the neck tissues as we age. Neck lift procedures are suitable for anyone looking for a more youthful neck, or who has concerns about the appearance of their neck. Younger patients are just as suitable for neck lift surgery, depending on their individual circumstances.

Over time, the skin loses its elasticity making soft tissues looser and affecting neck contour. An isolated neck lift can help to remove excess skin using surgical techniques to leave a more youthful neck. This is one of the surgical procedures that can help the neck skin to look much more youthful with good skin elasticity.

Neck lift surgery can do far more than target facial ageing and skin quality though. As with other forms of cosmetic surgery, the procedure can also enhance self esteem and confidence: when we look our best we feel our best. We approach life with renewed confidence with a renewed appearance.

It may be a somewhat intangible benefit, but nevertheless it may often be the biggest benefit – the restoration of a sense of self and positive self-image.

The neck lift is most common for people in their forties, fifties and older experiencing facial ageing, but a full neck lift can also have benefits for patients of a younger age if they are experiencing loose skin around the neck muscles.

Much will depend on the individual and the amount of sagging skin around the jawline and neck which could be a result of sun damaged skin or weight loss and not only signs of ageing.

The neck lift procedure

First you would check into the Azara, a registered independent hospital before the procedure begins with a local anaesthetic rather than general anaesthetic.

Numbing injections are added into the hairline behind the ears and the whole face and neck is completely numbed, rendering the neck lift a completely painless surgical treatment.

An incision is made in the hairline following the contours of the ear and then back behind the ear into the high hairline.

The muscles of the face are then repositioned to a more youthful position and excess fat is refined if required. Very fine sutures are used to meticulously reposition the skin after any excess loose skin has been removed. A mirror is provided to patients just before a crepe bandage is applied.

The whole process is completely painless and passes quickly for the patient as Dominic performs the procedure itself. Those worried about visible scars should be reassured that every care is taken to ensure this does not occur.

How quick is recovery from a full neck lift? 

Following neck lift surgery, London patients will usually have stitches removed after one week, be able to return to work after two weeks, and may enjoy exercise from four weeks following the neck lift procedure. Full, healed results are expected to be seen after 12 weeks.

A face and neck lift can put the clock back by 7 – 10 years since it targets excess skin and loose skin giving a youthful appearance, but of course the ageing process will continue even after surgery.

Most patients enjoy many years of long-lasting results following face and neck lift surgery, but of course results differ from patient to patient and care should be taken to look after the facial area through a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Over time it’s possible that loose skin and excess skin may occur again.

About the platysma muscle and platysmaplasty

Many patients possess deep neck structures which impact the neck chin angle. Often the deep neck, the muscles, fat and glands deep to the platysma muscle need to be sculpted.

The platysma muscle is a thin scarf like muscle just under the neck skin and lower face. When we age, this often splits to form those noticeable neck bands – platysma bands. A platysmaplasty helps remove platysma bands with a small incision under the chin to reduce and reattach the neck muscle to provide a more youthful, contoured neck.

Neck liposuction alone would only reduce superficial fat deposits as it isn’t the cause of the neck muscle banding. If you have significant neck bands or loose skin in the neck area then a platysmaplasty will deal with this and remodel the neck chin angle.
