Neck Lift


Neck Lift Hassan Shabban

More commonly known as a “Neck Lift”, a Platysmaplasty is the cosmetic procedure used to tighten and reshape the skin around the neck and jaw to eliminate signs of ageing and create a smoother, tighter look. If you are unhappy with the appearance of this area then you may wish to consider this type of treatment.

What do patients hope to achieve from a Neck Lift?

Patients that come to see Mr Hassan Shaaban for a Neck Lift are usually wanting to address the following common concerns:

  • Too much excess skin
  • Too much excess fat
  • ‘Turkey Wattle’ neck

What are the benefits of a Neck Lift?

The neck, as well as the face, is usually where the first signs of ageing will show. Your skin will lose its’ elasticity and begin to sag, which can result in the appearance of lines, wrinkles and vertical bands.

If you have lost a lot of weight then this is another reason that excess skin might gather around the neck and chin area. Addressing these issues with a Neck Lift will improve the appearance of the skin on the neck and provide a fresher and more youthful appearance.

CONSULTATION

Deciding to go ahead with a Neck Lift procedure is a huge decision to make and one that needs a lot of thought; therefore be sure to consult with a reputable, professional surgeon prior to your treatment such as Mr Hassan Shaaban. Mr Shaaban’s job is to support and advise you throughout the whole process from consultation through to treatment.

Your initial consultation will take about an hour and will probably be at Phi Clinic in Harley Street, London, or in Liverpool. Firstly, Mr Shaaban will assess your suitability for the treatment based on your desires, needs and overall health. You may be asked to make a few changes to your lifestyle so that you are in a good condition to undergo surgery. Be sure to be honest and open with Mr Shaaban, and if you do have any question or concerns, he will be more than happy to discuss these with you.

If, after your initial consultation and assessment, you decide to proceed with your Neck Lift procedure with Mr Hassan Shaaban, then he will see you for another consultation closer to the date of surgery.

THE PROCEDURE

A Neck Lift is usually a set of procedures used together to enhance the appearance of the neck. The combined procedures include:

  • Liposuction to remove excess fat
  • Removal of excess skin
  • Removal or alteration of neck muscles
  • Botox injections (to address “bands”)

A ‘Neck Lift’ procedure can also sometimes be performed as part of a Face Lift, but in some cases a Neck Lift is all that is needed to correct what the patient desires. ‘Platysmaplasty’ is completed under general anaesthetic and involves creating incisions either under the chin or behind the ears in order to tighten the neck muscles. Loose skin is tightened or removed, while fat tissue can be removed using Liposuction if necessary.

What are the risks involved with a Neck Lift procedure?

Swelling or bruising is the most common risk following this treatment, amongst other symptoms such as tingling or tightness of the skin, all of which should disappear over the recovery period of about a month. Obviously there are risks that come with any cosmetic surgical procedure; all o which Mr Hassan Shaaban will discuss with you.

RECOVERY

Overall, a more youthful appearance to the neck area is achieved so long as you care for the wound as you recover and continue to live a healthy lifestyle. Recovery from any procedure like this will take time, but Mr Hassan Shaaban will always provide follow-up consultations to ensure that the recovery process is happening within the expected timescales.

Recovery Timescale

BACK TO WORK – Most patients can expect to return to work within 10-14 days after a Neck Lift procedure.

PHYSICAL EXERCISE – It is best to wait 3 weeks before participating in sports or physical activities post Neck Lift.
