What is a Neck Lift?

While a neck lift and a facelift are often performed in combination to achieve comprehensive anti-aging goals, the two procedures differ in terms of the areas and concerns they address. Where a facelift targets the cheeks, jowls, nasolabial folds, and jawline, a neck lift will address submental fullness, vertical muscle bands, thinning skin, and drooping contours in the neck. The surgery can rewind the clock by 5-10 years for some patients, boosting confidence both professionally and socially.

Types of Neck Lifts

Dr. Brace insists on personalizing every procedure, ensuring his approach is right for the patient’s needs and objectives. He draws from a wide range of modalities to deliver optimal improvements. 

Grecian urn direct neck lift

Performed mostly for male patients, this technique helps to trim a “turkey neck”, restructuring the profile for a slimmer appearance. Dr. Brace will trim excess skin to streamline the area. He often combines surgery with pulsed dye laser treatments to minimize the look of postoperative scars.


Platysmaplasty is performed to combat the vertical muscle banding that telegraphs aging. The platysma muscle is broad and thin, extending from the collarbone up to below the chin. Platysmaplasty can be performed in combination with neck and chin liposuction to remove stubborn pockets of fat.

Neck liposuction

Liposuction of the neck and chin can be instrumental in creating a more youthful, attractive profile. During the treatment, excess fat is extracted from the submental region via a slender tube called a cannula. Liposuction is a common add-on to other neck and facial surgeries.

Non-surgical neck lift

Dr. Brace prides himself on offering the full gamut of aesthetic solutions for neck-related concerns. He can perform non-invasive treatments to improve the appearance of the neck without lengthy downtime, scarring, or anesthesia. Examples include BOTOX or Belkyra injections and Profound RF microneedling.

Chin implant

Silicone chin implants come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and can restore a more balanced profile, harmonizing the features and the facial shape. Chin implants can be used in combination with neck lift surgery to correct a weak or receding chin.

Who is a good candidate for a London neck lift?

Each patient is unique and requires a customized treatment plan. Dr. Brace will meet with you for a private consultation to assess your skin quality, review your medical history, and evaluate the best approach for accomplishing your cosmetic goals. 

In general, good candidates for aesthetic surgery are non-smokers in good health who are not currently dealing with any uncontrolled medical problems. They should have realistic expectations for improvement rather than perfection when it comes to their results.
