Different types of neck lift procedures
There are several techniques to get rid of the excess skin and fat in the neck area. These procedures are performed according to the patients needs, and requests. In fact, there are two main categories of neck lift surgery; the surgical and the non- surgical ones. But, both aim to tighten and make firmer the neck area.
The surgical techniques
A neck lift or platysmaplasty, this procedure is comparable to the mini facelift, except that it concerns the neck area and not the face. As a result, swelling will appear only on the neck after the surgery. A small liposuction is also often needed below the chin. It lasts about two hours and is carried out under general anesthesia. The plastic surgeon makes an incision in front of and behind the ear, around the earlobe. Then the neck skin is lifted, retightened and any excess fat is extracted. It is possible that a small additional incision might be made under the chin. The scars of this procedure extend further back, that is to say behind the ear. The neck lift is often performed at the same time as a facelift for a more harmonious result.
The mini facelift, the MACS-lift "Minimal Access Cranial Suspension", s-lift, or soft lift is softer and less invasive than the classic facelift. The mini facelift is not only intended for the face but it can also involve the neck. The MACS-lift has an effect, in particular, on the neck, the jaw and cheeks contour. Furthermore, it guarantees long-lasting results, and who says 'mini' facelift says mini scars and mini recovery period! The surgeon makes incisions in the hair, at the temples and above the ear. As a result, the scars are hidden under the hair and behind the ears. The face skin is tightened with a natural rejuvenation effect. In case of a double chin, a liposculpture can be performed at the same time.
SMAS technique ,"Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System", will help to reshape and tighten the neckline in a natural way because it works on the subcutaneous muscles. Indeed, small incisions are created under the chin and towards the ears to stretch the muscles and redraw a nice neck contour.
The non-surgical techniques
Firming your neck without surgical intervention is possible thanks to different techniques such as Botox and fillers injection, etc. The Nefertiti Lift is a fairly recent non-surgical aesthetic technique, which aims to redefine the lower jaw shape and the neckline, to restore a youthful and toned face contour. Thanks to micro-injections of Botox toxin accurately dosed, the musculature of the upper part of the face takes over to lift the lower part, redefining the lower jaw oval and neck.
The Nefertiti Lift is recommended for all patients whose lower jaw and neck, dropped in volumes over age, but also to all those who want define the oval contour of their face, with a jaw line well marked, and without surgical intervention.
The Nefertiti lift technique restores a triangular geometric shape to the face "triangle of beauty" or the "V-line" when it tends to pull down. The result can be further enhanced, by combining this technique with fillers injections such as hyaluronic acid, or resorbable threads.
Scars related to surgical neck lift
The scars of a neck lift surgery are hidden around the ear so they are barely visible. A dressing will be placed to cover them. The recovery period is usually short. However, swelling and bruising will occur and disappear after one week. Moreover, the incisions are sutured with resorbable threads, which further simplifies the postoperative effects and care process. Nevertheless, it is possible to improve the postoperative follow-up and the scars quality thanks to LED light treatments which have an anti-inflammatory effect.
Post operative effects and recovery after neck lift surgery
A dressing is placed around the head and kept until the next morning. Daily antiseptic disinfection will be sufficient to clean the area during the first days. After a neck lift, the patient can feel pain, a tension behind the ears or on the neck, as well as bruises in the neck and chin, but these can be easily calmed down with simple analgesics. These discomforts disappear in the first days.
Result and outcome after mini neck lift procedure
The neck lift procedure helps to correct the overall appearance of the neck, tightens the muscles and removes excess fat and skin. After such a procedure, the neck is highlighted with a very smooth and firm skin. As a result, there is no need to hide it with a turtleneck sweater or behind a scarf. In fact, the mini neck lift results will be visible as soon as the postoperative swelling has fully disappeared, approximately one month after the intervention. Even the face looks 5 to 10 years younger, but with some associated techniques, the result can be further improved. Moreover, the neck lift surgery allows a correction of the neck oval, it is particularly recommended for men and women at the age of 40, who noticed the first signs of aging on their faces.
During this examination, the plastic surgeon will conduct a thorough medical examination to provide the patient with a personalized diagnosis, taking into account the skin characteristics. Therefore, the patient should follow the surgeon's instructions. Indeed, it is recommended to stop smoking at least one month before and after the surgery. Furthermore, taking aspirin is prohibited during the 10 days preceding the surgical neck lift procedure and the hair must be washed the day before D-day. It is advised not to eat or drink anything 6 hours before the face neck lift surgery.
Advices after neck lift surgery

Besides, it is advised to sleep on your back with an extra pillow under your head. In order to accelerate the swelling disappearance, do not hesitate to place ice pockets on the inflated areas. Furthermore, it is essential to take the prescribed analgesics to manage postoperative pain. For women, makeup is not recommended during the first week, as for a mini facelift.
