Mini Neck Lift Perth

  • Performed Under local anesthesia
  • Minimally Invasive Procedure
  • Targets Loose Neck Skin

The natural aging process, sun damage, gravity, and facial volume loss are just some of the key factors that contribute to the sagging of facial tissue. Over time, these can cause us to lose our youthful facial contours. These result in some of the tell-tale signs of facial ageing. These include:

  • Shrinking and sagging of facial contours
  • The appearance of fine lines around the eyes and the lips
  • Drooping of brows and eyelids
  • Formation of Naso-labial folds
  • Jowling
  • Neck Sagging

The Mini Neck Lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to lift sagging neck tissue.

"Cosmetic procedures don’t work if they are not performed skillfully. The service we offer requires a certain type of provider, someone attuned to the finest of details and someone who is thorough yet gentle. Our consultations are detailed, highly individualised, unhurried and honest." Dr. Ehsan Jadoon

Frequently Asked Questions

The Mini Neck Lift is designed for patients who are experiencing early stages of neck sagging. They are not ready for or do not require a Full Necklift Surgery. 

 

To be considered suitable for undergoing this procedure, you have to:

  • Be physically fit and active.
  • Have a balanced and healthy diet.
  • Be of sound emotional/mental health.
  • Have realistic expectations of the outcome .

 

Mini Neck Lift is performed under local anaesthesia as a day surgery. It can also be performed under general or twilight anaesthesia. 

 

The two main types are Platysma-Plication Surgery and Lateral Platysma-Suspension Surgery. 

For context, the thin superficial muscle enveloping nearly the entire front half of the neck is known as platysma muscle. Platysma muscle sits right under the neck skin and is prone to becoming loose and saggy over time.

Neck Lift surgery targets this saggy platysma muscle as well as the loose neck skin located above it. As mentioned, two procedures are available to address this concern:

1 - Platysma-Plication Surgery:

Involves a small incision under the chin. Platysma muscle is then identified and tightened in the midline using surgical sutures.

2 - Lateral Platysma-Suspension Surgery:

This surgery is often carried out in conjunction with the Face Lift surgery. An incision is made behind the ears extending into the hairline. The platysma muscle is then identified, pulled upwards and tightened using surgical sutures. Any excess neck skin is also pulled up and excised after that.

In moderate to severe cases of neck sagging, both of these procedures will be combined in one sitting.

 

Mini Neck Lift is a relatively quicker procedure to perform. On average, it takes under two hours to complete.

Patients usually tolerate this procedure well. 

 

There are some risks associated with undergoing both general and twilight anesthesia, these risks and complications may include: 

  • Respiratory depression and compromise. 
  • Cardiovascular depression and compromise. 
  • Increased risk of deep vein thrombosis. 
  • Prolonged nausea and vomiting. 
  • Extended hangover. 
  • Short-term and long-term amnesia are some of the significant side effects. 

All surgical procedures carried out under general anesthesia or twilight sedation, should only be performed in an accredited hospital under the supervision of a qualified anesthetist. 

 

Once the treatment area has been numbed, you will be unable to feel any pain. At Medisculpt, we make every effort to ensure that every procedure we perform entails minimal pain or discomfort. 

 

Most people recover from the Mini Neck Lift exceptionally well. Since no general anaesthesia is administered, patients can go home straight after the surgery and do not require prolonged post-surgical hospital admission or monitoring.

 

 

 

Light activity is permitted after 72 hours, and most patients can return to office-based work within 7 to 10 days.

 

In the majority of cases, the incision scars are barely noticeable and begin to fade quickly within a few weeks.

At Medisculpt, we have the most extensive range of Fractional CO2 Lasers to help reduce any scarring, whether related to surgery or trauma.

Patients may experience some numbness in the treated area after the surgery. However, this improves within a few weeks.

 

People unfit to undergo this procedure are:

  • Physically unwell with pre-existing medical conditions.
  • Those with a history of keloid scarring.
  • Those with unrealistic expectations.
  • Those who are going through emotional stress and trauma.
  • Those we are unable or unwilling to follow a healthy lifestyle regarding their exercise and diet after the surgery.

 

Like any surgical procedure, the Mini Neck Lift comes with possible risks and complications that include, but are not limited to:

  • Infection.
  • Over-correction.
  • Inadequate correction.
  • Swelling and discomfort.
  • Delayed healing and unfavourable scarring.
  • Nerve trauma and numbness.
  • Temporary skin discolouration in the incision lines.

 

We recommend avoiding any strenuous physical activity for the first 2-3 weeks after any surgery. Otherwise, light exercise is allowed after this suggested timeframe.

 

Mini Neck Lift costs start from $10,500 as a stand-alone procedure when performed under local anaesthesia.

 

Most people opting for a Mini Neck Lift may also be candidates for other cosmetic procedures such as Mini Face Lift, Facial Fat Grafting or Fillers, Brow Lifts, Eyelid Surgery and Skin Resurfacing.

 

While facial ageing is a continuous and dynamic process, the results of the Mini Neck Lift in an average person will typically last for up to 10 or more years.

 

Please ensure that you avoid blood-thinning medication such as Nurofen, Aspirin, Heparin and Warfarin. Please discuss this with your General Practitioner in detail and make sure you are aware of any side effects of your current medication.

Herbal medication and nutritional supplements such as St John’s Wart, garlic, ginger, ginseng, fish oil, and homeopathic or herbal tonics should also be ceased for at least two weeks before your surgery. These substances are known for their potential to thin blood and as such, may cause excessive bleeding during and after the surgery.

 

Alcohol and cigarettes are the two main culprits when it comes to excessive bleeding during or after any surgery. Please avoid these harmful agents for at least two weeks (preferably more) before any surgery. Alcohol and cigarettes interfere with the normal healing process, increase the risk of potential complications and prolong the recovery time.

We recommend that you organise a friend or family member to give you a lift back home as driving is not recommended for the first few days after the Mini Neck Lift surgery. You also must consider organising a family member or friend to stay with you for the first three days after any surgery.

 

In clinical practice, we have found that an herbal substance called Arnica is helpful in reducing bleeding during or after the surgery. It also aids healing and minimises bruising. This naturally occurring herb is available in the form of oral supplements and is found in most health food stores and pharmacies in Australia. 

Above all, a healthy lifestyle, good sleep and a balanced nutritional diet after surgery are essential factors for optimum healing.

Important: Please inform your GP and seek professional medical advice before stopping any regular medication or starting any new medication.
