What is a Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)?
If you have localized deposits of fat and/or muscle laxity in the anterior part of the neck (under the chin) you may wish to consider a neck lift.
What is Involved?
- The procedure is done as a day surgery using a general anaesthetic in our Surgical Centre.
- The procedure typically entails an incision under the chin where the fat can be suctioned, the muscles tightened, and a small amount of skin may be removed.
- Additional procedures such as a facelift or chin augmentation may enhance the results.
What is the Healing Time?
- Discomfort is light and easily handled with oral medication.
- Swelling and bruising disappear over 10 - 14 days.
- Patients are back to work in 2 to 3 weeks.
