Necklift is the commonly used term for a range of procedures which aim to address issues relating to tissue excess of the lower face, jawline and neck.

Traditionally necklift has involved the removal of skin and excess fatty tissue from the lower face and neck, repairing the muscle layer (platysma muscle) beneath the skin and repositioning the facial and neck tissues back to a more favourable position. Excess skin is then traditionally trimmed in the area in front of the ear and behind the ear where the incisions can be best hidden. Whilst these procedures remain the core of many necklift procedures today often additional procedures such as liposuction are considered in the planning stages to aim for an individualised optimum outcome.
