The expertise available in Bangkok is second-to-none, and the city provides more than enough amenities and facilities for a relaxing pre or post-surgery break, despite the city's notorious traffic!

Am I a Suitable Candidate for a Neck Lift?

As we age, our skin becomes less elastic as the force of gravity inevitably pulls our faces down. Other factors can exacerbate this, many of which are beyond our control, such as genetics, or environmental factors, such as smoking, which we can control.

The neck lift is often used to treat patients who do not want or need a full facelift, and is particularly useful for correcting so-called ‘turkey’ or ‘wattle necks’.

A neck lift in Bangkok can improve:

  • Loose and sagging skin around the neck
  • Abnormal contours in the neck causing folds
  • Excess fat and loss skin in the lower face causing ‘jowls’
  • Excess fat under the chin

It may be performed with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as eyelid surgery, or with other facial wrinkle treatments.

Why Should I Have a Neck Lift in Bangkok?

Widely regarded as a global leader in medical tourism, Bangkok offers medical tourists a wide array of world-class healthcare facilities and amenities in one of the world’s most exciting cities.

Most people are initially attracted to the idea of undergoing neck lift surgery in Bangkok due to the low prices, with savings of more than 50% are unusual, especially for travellers from Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK and Eire.

But the affordable price shouldn't the only reason for choosing a particular destination or surgeon over another. The quality of the care is just as important – especially when it comes to any medical or surgical procedure on your own body. Medicine is considered a particularly honourable profession in Thailand, and there are a great many well-qualified doctors with the expertise to provide high-quality care.

Comprehensive treatments, using the latest techniques and state-of-the-art technology are available throughout Bangkok in world-class hospitals and facilities, which also offer patient-orientated services which are often far superior to the services received in patients’ own home countries.

Patients can also enjoy discovering an exotic new location, with many medical tourists taking the opportunity to explore parts of Thailand before their surgery. Bangkok is a major destination in itself, and also a hub for reaching other parts of the country, including stunning beach resorts and the tranquil north.

Searching for your surgeon with Medical Departures equips you with the facts to make an informed decision about your choice. Safe in the knowledge that Medical Departures has already conducted background checks which include clinic visits, verification of professional memberships, confirmation of qualifications and authenticating these with real patient reviews, you can choose from our website with a degree of certainty that you have chosen a reliable clinic/surgeon.

What Is Involved in the Neck Lift Procedure?

The neck lift procedure, like many other cosmetic treatments, is tailor-made to suit your particular problems. For instance:

  • If you have good elasticity and only need fat removing (for example, under the chin), a neck lift can be performed by liposuction alone.
  • If you require more extensive contouring to remove folding or turkey neck, a full neck lift is indicated. The surgery involves making incisions behind the ears or under the chin, the excess fat removed, loose skin trimmed away and the remaining tissue pulled tight, repositioned and stitched.

What Is the Recovery Time for a Neck Lift?

Immediately following a neck lift your wounds will be bandaged and you may have drains inserted to remove fluid from the wounds. Your neck will most likely feel tight and sore, and there will be bruising, which should dissipate over the next week.

Care instructions will be given to you by your surgeon and it is important to remember that people heal at different rates. You will usually feel well enough to return to work between one or two weeks after surgery, although you will have to take it easy and not do any strenuous exercise or heavy lifting.

You may be advised to sleep with your head in an elevated position for the first couple of weeks. The tightness may take several months to resolve.

In terms of how long you'll need to stay in Thailand, we suggest talking to your chosen surgeon before booking your flights; you will need time to rest in a comfortable environment (such as a well-equipped, air-conditioned hotel room) in Bangkok for several days following surgery. One option here is to book tickets that allow you to alter the day on which you fly for no extra cost. This is normally a paid-for add-on option you'll see when booking your flights.
