NECK LIFT 
 
The procedure is undertaken via an incision that runs around the front of the ear,  
down under the earlobe, around the back of the ear and  
extends into the hairline behind the ears. 
 
The skin is elevated off the soft tissues and the muscles of the neck  
are elevated and repositioned. 
 
In some cases an additional incision is made below the chin  
and further tightening of the muscles plus/minus liposuction is undertaken. 
 
Smokers have a much higher risk of developing complications.  
It is therefore advised that they should refrain from smoking for at least six weeks prior to,  
and for two weeks following surgery. Aspirin and related anti-inflammatories should be avoided for a similar time period.
