A cosmetic surgery procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the neck

necklift cosmetic surgery at venus medical in ireland

A necklift surgery is done to rejuvenate the jawline and neck by correcting problems like wrinkling of the neck skin, double chin, jowls, and turkey wattle. We may offer this procedure to men and women in combination with a facelift to address the entire aging face. It can also be done as a standalone procedure in people who still have a pleasing upper face but an aging neck. 

The loss of youthful appearance in the neck with age occurs due to various reasons, including heredity, gravity, sun damage, and loss of skin elasticity. A necklift can rejuvenate and refresh the appearance of the neck, take the years off, and make you look dramatically younger and rested, helping you feel more confident about your appearance.

To perform a necklift, we use oal sedation and local anaesthesia. The incision depends on how much change you are aiming for. Dr Paul can perform a limited incision necklift or a traditional necklift. In the conventional approach, the incision begins in the hairline at the sideburn and continues down in front of the ear and up behind the ear hidden in the crease. A limited incision necklift is done with a smaller incision around the ear but the results are also limited compared to a traditional necklift. During the surgery, Dr Paul will redistribute and sculpt fat, reposition neck tissues, tighten skin and muscles, and trim excess skin to reshape the neck contour. At the end of the surgery, the incision is closed with sutures. 

You can find out if you are a suitable candidate for a surgical necklift during a consultation with our plastic surgeons at Venus Medical.
