The necklift is performed by a regular team of specialized plastic surgeons with years of experience in the field of facial surgery. The necklift may be performed in conjunction with an S-lift or facelift. As you age or have lost a lot of weight, the skin in the neck may loosen. This creates excess skin. A necklift offers a solution for this so-called “turkey neck. Through an incision in the neck, the skin is tightened toward the ear: the end result is a tighter neck.

The treatment process

What is the treatment process for a necklift?


General anesthesia

Operation duration

45 – 60 minutes

Recovery time

7 days

In preparation for a necklift, you will have a consultation with the plastic surgeon who will explain how the necklift works. Here we discuss the entire treatment process and you will be informed in detail about the pros and cons of a necklift, the aftercare and the risks and possible complications associated with the surgery. It will also be determined during the consultation whether your personal wishes fit your initial situation. In the end, it is all about your satisfaction, which is why we want you to think carefully about the outcome, risks and complications. In addition, there is room to ask your questions about a necklift.

A 100 euro consultation fee is charged for a consultation. These will be deducted from the final price of the treatment.

During the operation, the skin is separated from the subcutaneous connective and muscle tissue. This is done through an incision (cut in the skin) above and in front of the ear. In some cases, this cut will extend behind the ear. The underlying muscles, ligaments and fat pads are lifted against gravity, then the excess skin is removed and closed tension-free. It is important to suture the skin without tension so that the scar is ultimately as invisible as possible. The procedure itself takes about one to two hours, depending on its extensiveness. You will usually need to wear a head bandage for a few days after the operation. In some cases, you will have drains placed in the wound area, which are intended to suck or allow the wound fluid to flow away.

You will usually need to wear a head bandage for several days after surgery. In some cases, you will have drains placed in the wound area, which are designed to drain or drain away wound fluid. After the dressing is removed, your face may be swollen. The skin may also be discolored blue from bruising, and you may experience a tense feeling, especially behind the ears. These are normal symptoms that disappear naturally over time. It may take several weeks for the swelling to disappear completely. A tense feeling and/or sensory disturbances disappear over the course of a few months.

There are risks associated with any surgical procedure, including a necklift. Despite the best possible care, in exceptional cases complications may arise that require urgent treatment questions and, in very rare cases, can also be life-threatening. Before you decide whether to have surgery wishes to undergo, it is important that you be well informed about the risks involved. Not
all risks can always be predicted in advance. Therefore, the list below is not complete.

Nerve injury
During a necklift or lower facelift, the facial nerve may be damaged in another location, leading to (usually temporary) paralysis of the affected part of your face, such as at the corner of your mouth. Permanent paralysis or weakening of facial muscles is rare.

Allergic reactions
In rare cases, local allergies to plasters, suture materials (adhesives), or injected drugs occur. Severe allergic reactions, including anaphylactic shock, may also occur in response to medications used during surgery and prescription drugs. All of these reactions may require additional treatment. If you are known to have an allergy, you are asked to mention it during your visit with your attending physician.

Post-bleeding and bruising
Post-operative bleeding and bruising may occur for up to several days after surgery. Sometimes a second operation is needed to stem the bleeding or remove the hematoma. In rare cases, bruising leaves the skin discolored for months.

Wound infection and delayed wound healing
Very rarely, wound infections occur that lead to delayed wound healing. Abscesses and the formation of fistulas – passageways under the skin – are extremely rare.

Reduced sensation
In areas where the skin has been loosened from the underlying layer, sensation may be reduced. Usually these sensation disturbances disappear on their own within a few months.

Hair loss and altered hairline
Hair loss may occur in the treated area and near scars. Any surgery to treat this will not be able to completely reverse the damage. Behind the ear or near the temples, the course of the hairline may be altered by the procedure. This cannot always be avoided.

Dying off parts of the skin
Very rarely, parts of the skin die (necrosis) after a facelift. This occurs almost exclusively in people who smoke. The necrosis causes scars that may be reduced with persecution lines.

Sensory disturbances, discomfort and pain
Especially around the ears, sensory disturbances, discomfort and pain may occur. These complaints can last for months and, in extreme cases, even years. In most cases, however, the complaints disappear on their own. In rare cases, sensory disturbances of part or all of the ear may be permanent.

Scarring from a face or necklift is inevitable. The doctor will cut so that the scars will be as inconspicuous as possible and in an easily concealed location. However, scars may be visible with raised hair.

Scar proliferation
Due to predisposition or impaired wound healing, scar proliferation (keloid scarring) may occur in rare cases. As a result, scars may turn red and expand, pain may occur and you may be limited in your facial expression. Sometimes surgical intervention may be required.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any man or woman with a turkey neck is eligible for a necklift. To achieve a great result, however, it is important that the skin still has some elasticity. Also, your overall health must be good. During the consultation, the plastic surgeon may indicate that the necklift is unsatisfactory for you. Sometimes a neck facelift is necessary to meet your expectations.

A necklift has the same risks as any other surgery. There may be bleeding from the wounds. Infections are rare. Sometimes some spots with fluid buildup or some stiff spots appear on the face. These will go away by themselves. If necessary, you can have them treated by a beautician or skin therapist.

The result of the necklift is visible for 5 to 15 years.
