The procedure for a neck lift is performed under general anaesthetic.

I will make the type of incision to suit the procedure. This could be in the small crease under your chin only, or this combined with a facelift type incision, around the ears and back towards the hairline. Here I may tighten the platysma muscle, move and sculpt fat and prominent submandibular glands, and reposition tissue.

The skin will be redraped over the new contours and excess skin removed.
