A neck lift is a procedure for removing excess or sagging skin caused by the effects of ageing. It can also correct the ‘turkey gobbler’ appearance. The incision is behind the ear extending around to the back of the hairline. You may also need a small incision under the chin.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia in a hospital, and overnight stay. A head bandage is worn for compression for 1 week. Recovery time is usually 3 weeks.
