Types of Necklift
at Cosmedica Aesthetic

Traditional Necklift

Involves incisions starting in the hairline at the level of the sideburn, continuing down and around the ear, and ending in the posterior hair.

Provides comprehensive rejuvenation by removing excess skin and fat, and tightening the underlying muscles.
Longer operative time and recovery period due to extensive incisions.
Suitable for patients with significant sagging and loose skin.

Limited Incision Necklift

Involves smaller incisions around the ears, potentially combined with a small incision under the chin.
Less invasive, shorter operative time, and quicker recovery period.
Limited ability to correct extensive sagging.
Suitable for patients with less severe sagging and younger individuals.

Choosing the Right Technique

The choice between a traditional necklift and a limited incision necklift depends on the patient’s specific needs, the complexity of the surgery, and the surgeon’s recommendation. An experienced surgeon will evaluate the patient’s neck structure and desired outcomes to determine the most appropriate approach.

How Does a Necklift in Turkey Work?


Patients undergo a thorough consultation with the surgeon, either in person or via virtual appointments. The surgeon assesses the patient’s neck structure, discusses their aesthetic goals, and reviews their medical history. Digital imaging or 3D simulations may be used to show potential results.
Once the surgery is scheduled, patients receive pre-operative instructions, including guidelines on eating, drinking, and medication adjustments. Pre-operative tests may be conducted to ensure the patient’s fitness for surgery.


Necklift is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation to ensure patient comfort throughout the surgery.
Depending on the chosen technique (traditional or limited incision necklift), the surgeon makes the necessary incisions.
After reshaping, the incisions are closed with sutures. Bandages and a compression garment are applied to support the new shape during the initial healing phase.


Patients typically stay in the clinic for monitoring during the first night or 48 hours post-surgery. Swelling and bruising around the neck are common but subside significantly within two weeks. Pain and discomfort are managed with prescribed medications.
Patients are given detailed aftercare instructions, including how to care for the surgical site, activity restrictions, and follow-up appointments. Bandages and compression garments are usually worn for about a week after the surgery.
Multiple follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor the healing process and address any concerns. Full recovery and the final results of the necklift can take several months, with residual swelling gradually diminishing.

FAQs - Neck Lift in Turkey

The recovery period following a necklift in Turkey varies depending on the individual and the complexity of the surgery. Patients typically stay in the clinic for monitoring during the first 2-3 days. Swelling and bruising are common and subside significantly within two weeks. Full recovery can take several months, with the final shape becoming apparent as all residual swelling disappears.
The visibility of scars depends on the type of necklift. Traditional necklift incisions are made around the ears and in the hairline, minimizing visible scarring. Limited incision necklift involves smaller incisions, which are also strategically placed to be less noticeable.
Most patients feel well enough to return to work and other normal routines within two weeks. However, this timeline varies based on the extent of the surgery and the patient’s overall health. It is advisable to avoid strenuous activities and protect the neck from injury during the initial healing period. Full recovery can take several months.
