A neck lift, aka Platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates excess skin and fat below your jawline, creating a more defined and youthful neck. Although the results are long-lasting, a neck lift can’t stop the natural ageing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the results of a necklift permanent?

Regretfully, a surgery cannot stop the natural aging — nothing can — so your neck lift results cannot last forever. However, given that you are taking good care of your skin your results should last from 10 to 12 years. Please note that severe weight gain can reverse the results of a neck lift.

How soon can I go back to work?

Best and the safest answer is when you feel ready to do so. Since the requirements of every job vary greatly, giving a single answer will not be correct. As long as your work does not involve heavy lifting, you can expect to be able to get back to work within 3 to 4 days. Given that it is possible, you may work from home, starting from the next day.

What is the best age to have a neck lift?

To qualify for this procedure, appearance is more important than age. More often than not, patients will be in their early forties, with the most common age for a facelift being in the mid-fifties. The maximum age limit is determined by the patients’ health status.

Is it true that you get better results when it is done early?

Some studies have demonstrated that the results of a neck lift will last longer if done at a younger age. Nonetheless, a neck lift is not a procedure done in order to prevent natural ageing. It is done to resolve the changes that have been noticed and disliked.

How much younger will a necklift make me look?

A recent study showed a portfolio of photographs of a group of patients before a neck lift and another after. On average the neck lift patients were judged to be nine years younger than their presurgical counterparts.
