Neck Lift (Ribbon Lift)

Neck Lift (Ribbon Lift)


A neck lift (or platysmaplasty) is a surgical procedure of the lower face. It commonly addresses excess skin and fat beneath the chin and neck to improve jawline definition. The procedure may be combined with other treatments such as laser liposuction.


How does it work?


Depending on the exact area and desired results, most neck lifts are done though endoscopic (keyhole) surgery. Usually small incisions are made in the hairline or behind the ear. A tissue-holding ribbon implant is then inserted to reposition the neck or jowl. Over time these repositioned tissues bind together naturally and the ribbon dissolves.


As with many surgical procedures, neck lifts require general or local anaesthetic.


Downtime varies between patients. It may take several weeks to months for bruising and swelling to subside.
