Neck lift with platysmaplasty at Skin + Surgery

Sagging skin in the neck area can make us look older than we feel. All the while, we can be happy with the rest of our face. A lift can help give definition back to the neck and jawline.

Sagging of the neck may be caused by sagging neck muscles. If this is the case, you can also go to Skin + Surgery for platysmaplasty: a procedure to tighten the muscles in the neck again.

About the operation

A neck lift and platysmaplasty are performed under local anaesthesia. The surgeon makes incisions behind the ears and under the chin to re-tighten the subcutaneous tissue and muscles. Often, the neck lift is done in combination with the facelift to bring a total, face and neck, into beautiful harmony.

After the lift, the excess skin is removed and you are expertly sutured to minimise the risk of visible scarring. The procedure takes an average of one and a half hours. After the procedure, you may be collected and can go home immediately.

A nice and familiar feeling

She gave me the familiar feeling I had not had before this. The calmness she exudes, the time she takes for you and her honesty.

Very pleasant experience

The intake was very pleasant, time was taken and clear explanations given. The correction was done in a pleasant atmosphere and I am very happy with the result. Aftercare is also done carefully and with attention. I benefited a lot from the app. All my questions were answered there and I was given good instructions.

Anaesthetic unpleasant but everything painless afterwards. Fine and friendly guidance. Quiet environment with pleasant staff.

Excellent service

I was 1000% pleased with the treatment. I was very well talked through everything and put at ease. I can't say anything about the end result yet, because I'm still wearing patches.

Consultation with doctor


Consultation with doctor

A neck lift is always preceded by several consultations with our plastic surgeon. You will have during the non-binding consultation plenty of space to ask your questions in a personal conversation. And express your wishes and expectations about the treatment. Our surgeon Dr Thanya Tha-In will assess whether a neck lift is a suitable treatment for you and whether it gives the best results. You will be given full information about the treatment and explained the entire treatment process, from precaution to aftercare. You will be told what end result you can expect from the treatment. Photographs will be taken beforehand and laid next to the photos after the surgery. This allows you to see the natural result of the neck lift beautifully.

To understand where you are coming from and why you want a neck lift, we like to take the time to get to know you well first. The most important thing about the whole treatment is that we understand what your wishes are. Do you want a natural result, appropriate to your age? What are your important pluses and minuses? How is the symmetry of your face? By getting to know you, we understand what you want. In the end, it's all about you. You get to take your time with your decision. It's your face! We rebalance your innerbeauty and your outer beauty.





A neck lift is outpatient treatment, which do not require admission. You may return home after the operation and a short rest period. However, you are not yet allowed to drive. In this case, take someone with you to our clinic or have someone pick you up by car after the treatment. During a neck lift, excess skin is removed from the neck. The underlying neck muscles are also tightened and returned to their original position. This is called a platysmaplasty.

The neck lift and platysmaplasty take between 1 and 2 hours on average. You will get a clearer jaw and neckline through this procedure, and the transition to your neck will become more prominent. Initial results are visible after just 1 to 2 weeks. The final, natural result shows after a few months to a year. The result lasts for a long time. Skin ageing does continue. A neck lift can be repeated after 10 to 15 years.





We are happy to guide you through the entire treatment and healing process. We work with a specially developed pre- and aftercare protocol, so that you are maximally prepared and enjoy your recovery. Your neck will be slightly swollen and feel tight for the few days after the neck lift. For mild post-operative pain, taking a paracetamol will suffice. The swelling and bruising will disappear on their own within a few weeks. In the first week, get plenty of rest and sleep supine on an extra pillow. This helps against swelling, reduces the risk of subsequent bleeding and promotes the healing process. Avoid pressing, squeezing, bending or lifting in the first three weeks. Do not engage in heavy physical exertion in the first six weeks.

You reach the best outcome and fastest healing with a healthy lifestyle. At least stop smoking until the sutures are out, do not drink hot drinks to avoid facial congestion and do not chew solid food intensively. Otherwise, this will put pressure on the sutures in the face. Keep moving normally after the neck lift to keep the blood circulation going and the wound healing quickly. You will be presentable again after one to two weeks and able to resume your daily social activities. In the first three months, do not expose your facial skin to bright sunlight or go under a sunbed or to the sauna. We recommend some connective tissue massages from 3 months after treatment. This makes the skin, underlying tissues and scars supple and soft, and promotes recovery.





A neck lift is a common surgical procedure at Skin + Surgery Clinics, with a very low risk of complications. An allergic reaction, subsequent bleeding or infection may occur in some cases. However, this is rare, as our highly qualified and experienced specialists work according to the state-of-the-art treatment techniques and use the best tools.

Occasionally, specific complications may occur such as nerve damage, asymmetry, hypertrophic (red, itchy) scars, hair loss or numbness of part of your face, which is usually not permanent. When in doubt, contact your treated doctor at Skin + Surgery immediately. Our doctors are easily accessible.

Mon to Sun 08:00 to 22:00

What are the risks and complications?

With any surgical treatment, there is a chance of a complication. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the procedure and its possible complications. There is the risk of an allergic reaction, bleeding or infection. The chance of this is very small. Our instruments are of the best quality. We work with very fine needles and fine diathermy, so as to minimise trauma to the tissue.

With what procedures can a neck lift with platysmaplasty be combined?

If a neck lift or platysmaplasty is not sufficient for the degree of sagging, you can consider a face-half lift. Besides lifting the neck, the face is also lifted. The area around the nasolabial fold becomes softer and the chin and jawline gain even more definition. At Skin + Surgery, we specialise in different types of lifts and techniques. So the surgeon will be able to properly advise you on the lift that best suits you and your needs.

What is a platysmaplasty?

With platysmaplasty, we repair sagging muscles on the front of the neck. By tightening these muscles, the folds and wrinkles in the neck area become softer and less visible. Through a small incision, the surgeon loosens the skin on the front of the neck. After this, he brings the sagging muscles back together with a permanent suture. A platysmaplasty is a relatively safe procedure if performed by a qualified specialist. The treatment can be performed under local anaesthetic.
