How Much Does a Neck Lift Surgery Cost in the UK?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that can give you a much more youthful and attractive look. It can improve the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and excessive fat in the neck area.

If you feel your neck looks aged or has a turkey-type appearance, a neck lift can take years off your appearance.

In this article, we aim to answer how much a neck lift costs in the UK and we will also explore what a neck lift involves and any associated costs.

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce wrinkles, sagging skin and excess fat around the lower face and neck area. This rejuvenates the overall appearance of your face by decreasing signs of ageing.

The areas of focus are typically from just below your chin to above your collarbones.

The Benefits of a Neck Lift

What are the benefits of a neck lift surgery:

  • Improved facial contours–as we age, our skin loses elasticity, becoming loose or slacking around our face and neck. A neck lift helps to restore lost firmness in these areas, giving a more youthful look.
  • Reduces excess fat–with age, it can become much more challenging to exercise away stubborn fat deposits that have developed on the lower parts of our face or at our chin line. A lower rhytidectomy (also known as a 'neck lift') helps target problem areas quickly.

What Does a Neck Lift Procedure Involve?

Before the procedure, we will use a general anaesthetic and make incisions near your ears, hairline, and chin line to ensure that visible scars stay hidden once they have healed.

Our facial plastic surgeon will then remove any excess fat or tissue before tightening underlying muscles using sutures and creating dramatic improvements.

A typical neck lift procedure usually takes one to two hours, depending on each individual's circumstances.

What is the Recovery Time for a Neck Lift?

The recovery time for a neck lift varies according to the individual, but most people can expect the process to take between 7 and 14 days.

Aftercare instructions include avoiding strenuous activities for at least three weeks, staying hydrated, and eating nutritious foods. At Kensington Medical a full aftercare list will be provided to ensure you are on a great road to recovery.

The Cost of a Neck Lift in the UK

The cost of a neck lift can vary significantly depending on the procedure's complexity and the patient's specific medical needs. It starts at £7,650.
