Neck z-plasty

In the case of a sagging neck (colloquially called “turkey gobbler”), for someone who is not interested in a facelift but still aiming for the cleanest possible outcome, it is possible to remove the excess skin and fat present under the chin and neck with a very simple surgical procedure.

A consultation with the surgeon is required for this intervention. This intervention can be performed under local anaesthetic or under general anaesthetic.


The procedure can be done on an outpatient basis, meaning that you can leave shortly after the procedure.
It involves tightening the loose neck skin by simply removing it surgically, then closing the neck in the shape of Z in order to hide the scar. The sutures are done with very fine sutures which are then removed 7 days after the operation.


3 to 6 weeks are enough time to appreciate the final result. This is the time needed for the tissues to regain their full flexibility and for the scars to have faded into the surrounding tissues. The contour improvement is spectacular.


The intervention lasts 1 hour. There is no pain, but a sensation of tension is sometimes possible. The first days, it is recommended not to shave. Post-operative care is simple.
