What is a Nefertiti Neck Lift?

A Nefertiti Neck Lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses anti-ageing injectables to give the neck and jaw areas a more youthful profile. You can benefit from this treatment if you have small amounts of loose neck skin and saggy jowls caused by ageing or weight loss.

The procedure’s name comes from the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti who was known for her sharp jawline and smooth neck. These features are associated with a youthful appearance.

The Nefertiti Neck Lift is a quick procedure, taking between 20 and 30 minutes. It doesn’t require general anaesthesia or a lengthy recovery time. Patients can resume their daily routine almost instantly which makes it a convenient option for those seeking natural-looking results without having to undergo major surgery.

The procedure's results last for three to six months, after which repeat visits are recommended for maintenance. 


What is a Surgical Neck Lift?

A Surgical Neck Lift, also known as a Lower Rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin on the neck and jawline and removes excess fat. 

You can benefit from this procedure if you have prominent neck lines or wrinkles and are looking for a permanent solution to achieve a youthful appearance. The operation takes one to two hours and is performed under general anaesthesia. While the results from this procedure are significant on their own, you can combine it with a Face Lift for even better results.

Since the procedure will result in bruising and swelling, we recommend that patients wait two weeks before resuming work. Most patients can resume exercise in 4-6 weeks. It is important to consult with a qualified surgeon to understand your suitability for a Surgical Neck Lift.

 


What Are the Pros and Cons of Each Procedure?

Nefertiti Neck Lift

Pros:

  • Minimally invasive with no incisions required.
  • It’s a quick procedure that is typically completed within 30 minutes.
  • No general anaesthesia.
  • Short recovery time with most patients resuming normal activities immediately.
  • Improves the jawline and neck contour by reducing the appearance of sagging skin 

Cons:

  • Results are temporary, with repeat treatments becoming necessary after 3-6 months.
  • It does not effectively address severe sagging in the neck.

Surgical Neck Lift

Pros:

  • Provides a long-lasting solution to ageing skin on the neck.
  • Effectively removes extra skin and fat for a more defined jawline.
  • It improves the appearance of a double chin.

Cons:

  • Involves a longer recovery period compared to non-surgical procedures.
  • Requires general anaesthesia which carries its own risks.
  • Potential for visible scarring, although scars are usually well-concealed around the ears and under the chin.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Nefertiti Neck Lift?

The ideal candidate for a Nefertiti Neck Treatment is someone looking for a minimally invasive procedure to counter the effects of ageing on their neck without the downtime of surgery.


Suitable candidates should be physically healthy and have realistic expectations about the procedure’s results. They should understand that the operation provides temporary improvement so they will have to undergo follow-up treatments to maintain its effects over time. It is also important to understand that this treatment is not suitable for treating significant loose skin around the face and neck.


Those who are interested in this treatment should also have good skin elasticity to respond well to the muscle-relaxing injections used in the procedure. Since smoking can affect the healing process, the ideal candidates should be non-smokers or quit smoking well before the procedure.


When Should you Choose a Surgical Neck Lift?

A Surgical Neck Lift is best suited for those with large amounts of excess skin in the neck and jawline that cannot be comprehensively removed with non-invasive treatments. 

If non-surgical procedures, like the Nefertiti Neck Treatment, no longer produce the desired results or you have to frequently visit clinics for repeat procedures, a Surgical Neck Lift may be a more suitable option to consider. 

Consult with one of our qualified surgeons to determine the best approach based on your specific goals and unique physical characteristics.


How Dong do Nefertiti Neck Lift Results Last?

Nefertiti Neck Lift results last between three to six months. The longevity of the results varies from one person to another and depend on factors like individual skin laxity, age, and lifestyle. Individuals break down Botox, the injectable used for this treatment, at different rates which will also impact how regularly you need to consider maintenance sessions.

We recommend regular follow-up sessions to maintain the desired aesthetic results as the effects of the neurotoxin used in the procedure gradually wear off over time.


How Do You Maintain the Results of Your Nefertiti Neck Lift?

You can maintain the results of your Nefertiti Neck Treatment with regular follow-up treatments, good skincare habits, and a healthy lifestyle. 

Here’s how you can maintain the treatment’s results:

  • Regular Treatments: Since the Nefertiti Lift involves anti-ageing injections, the results are temporary. Scheduling regular sessions every three to six months can help maintain the contouring effects.
  • Skincare Routine: Incorporate a skincare routine that focuses on hydration and firming. Products containing hyaluronic acid, retinoids and peptides can improve skin elasticity and appearance.
  • Sun Protection: Excessive UV exposure can cause the skin to age faster. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and wear clothing that shields the neck area from sun damage.
  • Diet and Exercise: A balanced diet rich in antioxidants and plenty of water combined with regular exercise can improve skin quality to help you maintain the Nefertiti Lift results.
  • Avoid Smoking: Smoking leads to premature skin ageing and negatively affects the results of the treatment.

How Much Does a Nefertiti Neck Lift Cost?

A Nefertiti Neck Lift in the UK costs £400-500. The exact cost varies depending on the clinic’s location, the surgeon’s expertise, and the extent of treatment. You can speak with one of our expert surgeons to get a more precise quote based on the specifics of your procedure after a consultation. 


Words From Our Founder

Mr. Bryan Mayou

It is only natural that patients may want to consider non-surgical options when looking to treat neck concerns. While non-surgical methods such as the Nefertiti Neck Lift result in a refined and elegant appearance, it is important to remember that the results are not permanent. A surgical Neck Lift addresses sagging skin and excess fat, ensuring long lasting results, but has a longer recovery time. For patients who are looking for results to treat minor concerns, the non-surgical option may be more suitable, but it is important to remember that it cannot treat more serious concerns.
Mr. Bryan Mayou
