Face and Neck Lift


We Offer Face and Neck Lifts from Our Clinics in Glasgow and London.

A face and neck lift is an operation designed to remove excess skin from the lower face, neck and jawline.
The procedure is ideal for patients who are concerned about the more advanced signs of ageing the lower face and neck.

What Happens During a Face and Neck Lift Procedure?

Face and neck lift surgery can be performed under local anaesthetic, sedation or general anaesthetic depending on the patient and their requirements.

At the start of the procedure some fluid is injected into the face which reduces the amount of bleeding and bruising afterwards. The surgeon then makes an incision just in front of the ear, curving round the back of the ear and sometimes into the hair bearing scalp behind the ear too depending on how much skin needs to be removed. When the skin has been separated the surgeon then works on the muscle layer under the skin: this is where the real lifting effect is achieved. The muscle layer is lifted, trimmed, and then sewn back in a more youthful position. When this has been done, any excess skin is removed and the skin is gently stitched back together.

Where Are The Scars?

The scars are hidden in the natural crease in front of the ear and within the ear itself, as well as behind the ear and into the hairline. Over time the scars should be virtually undetectable.

Facelift FAQs

What is the recovery like after the procedure?

It is likely there will be bruising and swelling after a full face and neck lift.

As a general rule, most people feel comfortable getting back to work in around a week to 10 days. If you have had a lot of liposuction carried out was part of the neck lift procedure, the recovery process will normally take longer than average.

How long do the results last?

There are many claims around the internet about how long a face and neck lift result should last.

The most recent research however has shown that a good facelift should last, on average, around 5 years.

What other procedures can this procedure be combined with?

A full face and neck lift is often combined with eyelid surgery, to lift and open out the eyes.

What are the potential risks and complications?

Like any operation, there is a risk of side effects and complications.

There is a possibility of a collection of blood forming under the surface of the skin, which could necessitate further treatment to remove it. There is also a small risk of wounds becoming infected, especially in patients who smoke. Occasionally there can be wound healing problems that mean the scars don’t heal as neatly as you would expect: again, this is much more common in patients who smoke. In rare situations there can be damage to the facial nerve, which controls movement of the face.
