  • Patient Review

    ” I had a ball of fat in my neck below my chin for many years until one day I looked in the mirror and thought “It’s got to go!” I started my research online and read up about many consultants and their reviews but just kept leaning towards Mr Gerard Lambe and Reflect Clinic and I am so glad that I did. On speaking to Jayne at Reflect I arranged my first consultation with Mr Lambe. I knew straight away that he was the Consultant for me. Mr Lambe is very approachable and really put me at ease. He explained everything in detail what would happen and suggested that the long term answer for me would be to have a Neck Lift with the possibility of liposuction. He also said it shouldn’t be painful which was something that I was worried about. I booked my appointment for the 8th March 2023 and even from the morning after the operation, when I eventually looked in the mirror, I was over the moon with the results and true to his word, there was no pain, just tightness and a bit of discomfort from the swelling with very little bruising! He has done an amazing job and the scarring is so minimal it’s hard to believe I have gone through this procedure. When I look at the before and after photos I have taken I wished I had done this sooner! I would like to say a big thank you to Jayne who was in contact with me prior and still is after my operation, providing me with advice and lots of friendly chats and has supported me throughout. Thank you to the nursing team who looked after me, they were so good and lovely, checking on me regularly and making sure I was comfortable and Kelly my aftercare nurse deserves a big thank you too. Anyone thinking of having this type of surgery I can absolutely recommend Mr Gerard Lambe and his team. Thank you everyone! ”

What is Neck Lift Surgery?

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that removes skin and fat around your jawline to help reduce wrinkles and skin in the neck.

It is often recommended for those who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with excess skin drooping from their lower face and neck areas.

The Results

Patients who undergo a neck lift will experience a reduction in wrinkles, sagging skin, double chin, and jowls in the neck region.

The procedure is designed to restore definition to the jawline and give a more youthful appearance.

  • How is neck lift surgery performed?

    During this procedure, a surgeon will address the area behind the ears and/or below the chin to access the underlying muscles and tissue of the patient’s neck.

    Excess fat and skin are carefully removed from around your chin, jawline, neck, and collarbone before being stitched up with dissolvable sutures.

    The next step involves tightening up any lax muscles with a light-guided surgical suture system to help further support and refine the area.

    This system consists of an illuminated suture rod that is mapped out beneath your skin to help create a more defined facial structure and youthful lower face contour.

    Once these steps are complete, any remaining incisions are sealed with additional sutures before being covered with bandages or dressings.

  • What is the price of neck lift surgery?

    To find out a price for your neck lift surgery, please book a consultation with Jayne so that Mr Lambe can see you, discuss your needs and decide if you are a good candidate for cosmetic surgery.

    Once you have had your Consultation, we will be happy to give you a clear and transparent price for your surgery as part of your overall research on your procedure, your Surgeon and your wishes.

  • Who is neck lift surgery for?

    Neck lift surgery is typically performed on individuals with excessive sagging skin and/or prominent wrinkles and folds in the lower face and neck area.

    This procedure is particularly beneficial for men and women who have lost significant amounts of weight and are left with excess skin in the neck area or those who have undergone natural ageing and wish to reduce the appearance of sagging skin.

  • How do a full facelift and neck lift differ?

    A full facelift typically involves making incisions from the temple around the ear to the hairline at the back of the neck. In contrast, a neck lift only requires incisions around the ears and possibly behind them.

  • Does Platysmaplasty improve my jawline?

    Yes, it does!

    A neck lift procedure is designed to improve the appearance of the neck area and jawline, although it cannot create an entirely new jawline.

    It can help to define a sagging jawline by removing excess fat from the area.

  • Will I be bruised and swollen?

    Swelling and bruising should reduce after a full week after the procedure.
