Goodbye Turtlenecks, Hello Definition: How the Neck Lift Became a Celebrity Favorite

Posted by Dr. Julian De Silva | November 8th, 2018

The neck is one of the first areas to show signs of aging as skin sags and begins to wrinkle. In the past, celebrities would get creative on how to cover up their necks. They’d wear chunky necklaces or cover the area with turtlenecks or scarves. Thankfully, continuing advancement in cosmetic surgery has lead to modern approaches that give celebrity clients what they want – safe, natural looking results with minimal risks and virtually no downtime.

Located in London on the World Famous Harley Street, The Centre for Advanced Facial, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery has long been known as a hub for aesthetic excellence. Lead by board certified and internationally renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, the Center for Advanced Facial, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery prides itself on pioneering state of the art aesthetic procedures. Their commitment to giving all clients a safe, world-class experience is what makes them popular among London’s elite. Word of mouth remains Dr De Silva’s best advantage over other clinics in the area and his growing celebrity clientele is proof of his skill and service.

One of the clinic’s most popular procedures is the neck lift. As a neck specialist, Dr De Silva understands the importance of pulling the skin in the right direction to produce a naturally lifted neck. This way, a smooth transition between the jaw and the neck can be created. This exact result is what celebrities are looking for.

In some cases, pulling the skin in the wrong direction or pulling it too tight can result in disturbances in the way the neck moves. Furthermore, it can also lead to an unnaturally taught neck. This is the reason why celebrities seek the help of a neck specialist such as Dr De Silva. At The Centre, the custom built facility for Facial Plastic Surgery has a private entrance for A-list celebrities, by appointment only.

During the planning stage, Dr De Silva will discuss his strategy to sculpt your neck to perfection. His one on one consultation makes it possible for him to plan a client’s procedure down to the very last detail. He understands that each client is different and therefore may also require the use of adjunct treatments such as fat reshaping and reduction or implants.

What should you look for in a neck lift?

A distinct jaw line along the mandibular bone and a sharp angle to the neck are the hallmarks of a well-executed neck lift. Furthermore, incisions should be almost invisible and placed in areas that blend well into the natural folds of the skin. Pain and discomfort are kept at a minimum and are managed by anesthesia. Dr De Silva applies his experience in microsurgery to take additional care in each procedure, using a signature triple stitch technique to hide scars in natural curves, utilising 3-D telescopes to aid recovery and the latest in Bio-therapy to heal faster.

Another advantage of working with Dr De Silva is that you’ll get his A+ team as well. You’ll be given pre and post-op information, as well as the chance to ask questions about the all the steps of your neck lift procedure.
