Neck Lift in Thailand

Interplast Clinic provides a wide range of cosmetic surgical procedures including neck lift surgery by board-certified plastic surgeons with over 20 years of experience.


A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical solution to improve visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. Youthful contours in the neck and face can be lost due to a variety of factors, such as stress, weight gain, environmental conditions, and heredity.

If you are bothered by excess skin, heavy wrinkles or other signs of aging, neck lift surgery can help to effectively balance and smooth out the neck and chin areas.

Here are some common problems that lead people towards neck lift surgery as a solution:

  • Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face that creates jowls
  • Excess fatty deposits underneath the chin
  • Loose neck skin
  • Muscle banding in the neck, which creates abnormal contours

Neck lift procedures are designed to suit the needs of each patient on an individual basis. If you feel that you might benefit from a neck lift, ask for a consultation with a plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon.

A neck lift is commonly combined with a lower facelift, although it can also be performed as an individual procedure. Depending on the severity of the skin excess, the procedure may be performed by liposuction plus tightening of the neck muscle under the chin.



The surgery begins with a small incision under the jaw to tighten the skin and the underlying muscles of the neck (the platysma muscles).

The surgeon will then insert a small liposuction cannula for removing excess fat and contouring the chin and the neck. If you have a lot of loose skin, an incision behind the ears may be necessary to perform skin re-draping around the neck.

Sometimes it is also necessary to treat the submaxillary glands by trimming the enlarged or drooping part of the gland. The neck is then shaped for a natural and youthful result.

During your consultation, your surgeon will examine your neck and discuss your goals and create an individual surgery plan for you.

The whole procedure takes about 3-4 hours to perform. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and requires an overnight stay in hospital, although this can vary case by case. 

Before & After

Before the Surgery

  • Read the pre-surgery instructions to help prevent complications and improve outcomes for your surgery.
  • Your surgeon may prescribe a daily face washing routine to be completed in the days before surgery, to prepare the skin for the procedure.
  • Abstain from eating or drinking anything after midnight on the day before your surgery.


  • Your neck may feel a bit tight after a few weeks with some bruising and swelling.
  • You should keep your neck elevated above your heart to minimize swelling; avoid twisting or bending your neck.
  • Do not apply ice to the neck as this can interfere with blood circulation.
  • You should be able to return to work and your normal activities within 2 weeks.
