Introduction


Last fact-checked: 7 December 2023

A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to contour the skin, creating a firmer and more defined appearance around the neck and chin area.

Also known as neck contouring, patients commonly seek this treatment to help remove neck wrinkles and banish sagging skin, which can take years off one's age. A skilled surgeon can also restore the overall balance of your facial features, creating a refined jawline to frame the face.

As our bodies age, we produce less collagen and hyaluronic acid, which causes the skin to lose its elasticity. Collagen is the main protein for building skin while hyaluronic acid hydrates us; once these become diminished, the underlying structure of the skin begins to collapse, and the lack of hydration dries out the skin, leading to sagging, wrinkles and lines.

Other factors may expedite the aging process, including smoking, sun damage and hereditary factors–some of which we can control and some we can’t.

What Can a Neck Lift Achieve?

A neck lift may be a viable option for you if you are self-conscious about deep lines causing bands around your neck, or loose and sagging skin around the throat area. It can also help to improve the lower face, including the loose skin and excess fat that cause jowls. Toward a fuller approach to your treatment, liposuction may also be used to get rid of the excess fat under the chin that creates a double chin.

A neck lift is often performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation techniques, including eyelid surgery or non-surgical treatments, where a full facelift is not required or desired.

What Is Involved in Terms of the Procedure?


A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to correct specific neck conditions, such as sagging skin, excess fat, or loose muscle bands. Depending on the severity of your condition, there are different options for neck lift surgery that your plastic surgeon may recommend.

If your skin elasticity is good and you only have excess fat to remove, liposuction alone may be enough to correct the problem. This is typically done by making a small incision under the chin, through which a small tube is inserted to draw out the fat. This procedure is usually done as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or light intravenous sedation. After the procedure, you may experience some minimal scarring, but this will fade over time.

However, if you have large amounts of loose skin and require more extensive work, a full neck lift may be the best option. This procedure involves making incisions either under the chin or behind the ears, through which your plastic surgeon will remove excess fat and skin before repositioning the remaining skin and suturing the wounds. This procedure is also typically done under general anesthesia or light intravenous sedation.

It is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine which neck lift option is best for you, based on your unique condition and desired outcome. With the right procedure and a skilled surgeon, a neck lift can help you achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

What Is the Recovery Time for a Neck Lift?


After surgery, you will be bandaged and there may be drains put in place to help take any fluid away from the wounds. You will probably experience swelling and bruising although these side-effects will ease gradually over the following week or so. Your neck may feel tight to a certain degree for several months, but again, this will eventually improve.

Many people are able to continue with most of their everyday activities after a few days and are usually out and about in public within one or two weeks. It may be helpful for the swelling if you sleep with your head higher than normal after surgery.

When getting surgery abroad, do plan any holiday activities before your procedure and take things generally easy before heading home. Consult with your surgeon as to when you are able to fly home, as this depends on a number of factors, such as flight duration and the complexity of your surgery. 

How Much Can I Save by Having a Neck Lift Abroad?


The ultimate cost depends on the type of neck lift you have, and your preferred country. As an example, a neck lift in the US costs upwards of $5,000. This is compared to just $2,000 in Mexico and around $2,300 in Thailand.
