Neck Lift Surgery by Anthony MacQuillan

A Neck Lift, also known as Platysmaplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the appearance of your neck and jawline.

As you age, the skin on your neck may start to sag and lose its elasticity, or you may notice excess fat accumulating under your chin. These changes can alter your facial profile and may not always reflect the vitality and energy you feel. This is where a Neck Lift comes in – it’s a solution aimed at restoring a more defined and pleasing neck contour.

The decision to undergo a Neck Lift is a personal one and can be influenced by various factors. It’s important to understand what the procedure involves, who it’s suitable for, its benefits, the types involved, how it’s performed, the recovery process, and the potential risks.

Consultant Plastic Surgeon Anthony MacQuillan can provide information about your surgical options, helping you make an informed decision about this procedure.

What is a Neck Lift?

A Neck Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the neck and jawline. The procedure involves removing excess skin, tightening underlying muscles, and sometimes removing or altering neck fat.

This process can significantly enhance the neck’s contour, leading to a more refined and balanced facial appearance.

The procedure is often sought by individuals who are unhappy with sagging skin, excess fat, or the lack of definition in their neck area. A Neck Lift can be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial surgeries such as a Facelift, Liposuction, or Chin Augmentation to achieve facial rejuvenation.
