A necklift is a cosmetic surgery procedure to improve the appearance of the neck and reduce signs of ageing or weight loss.
Necklift in Perth
The shape and tone of the neck can greatly influence your overall facial appearance. In Perth, necklift surgery can be performed on its own or in combination with a facelift or other cosmetic surgery to create a natural and more aesthetically-pleasing neckline and jawline.
Perth necklift surgery can help to:
- Tighten loose skin
- Remove excess fat
- Reduce a double chin
- Reduce jowls
- Define the jawline
- Treat a ‘turkey gobbler’ neck
- Reduce the appearance of stringy muscle cords (‘wattles’) that run the length of the neck

Frequently Asked Questions
After necklift surgery, many patients report that the neck and jawline look about 5-10 years younger. The results of a necklift typically last up to 10 years, but do vary from person to person. The desired end result should be improvement, not perfection. Your plastic surgeon at Assure Cosmetic Centre is the best person to determine if your expectations are achievable.
Necklift surgery can be performed in several ways, depending on factors such as muscle tone, skin elasticity and body fat in the neck area. Depending on the desired effect, a necklift may be performed on its own or in combination with a facelift or other cosmetic surgery during the same operation. The procedure may take 1-3 hours, depending on the extent of surgery involved.
In Perth, a necklift is performed in an accredited hospital under general anaesthetic. In most cases you can expect a short stay of up to 1-2 days, but this will depend on your general health, the extent of the procedure and your surgeon’s advice.
You will need to attend a post-operative consultation approximately 5-7 days after necklift surgery, and again 7-14 days after surgery with subsequent post-op visits if required.
Scars are an inevitable result of any surgery. However, with necklift surgery incisions are made within the skin’s natural folds, so that scarring is barely visible. Your plastic surgeon will make every effort to ensure any scars are as inconspicuous as possible, and scars usually fade with time.
A post-operative care plan will be discussed with you before and after the procedure. Returning to work and your normal activities is an individual matter, and your plastic surgeon will advise you. Most patients feel well enough to return to work within 2 weeks. Sports or strenuous activities should be avoided for at least 3 weeks, and complete healing and recovery may take a few months.
An initial consultation with your plastic surgeon will cost approximately $185 and take about 40 minutes. Your plastic surgeon will provide an indication of the likely procedure costs with you, which will include your surgeon’s fee, anaesthetist’s fees and hospital and theatre fees. Your surgeon’s fee includes all post-operative care and nurse dressings. Pricing of your surgeon’s fee will vary from case to case but an indicative range is $3,000 to $5,000 excluding GST.
