Neck Lift

Some people feel that their neck gives away their age. A neck lift can give you a more youthful appearance by contouring your neck, getting rid stubborn fat deposits and eliminating loose, excess tissues that create the appearance of a “turkey neck.” A neck lift can rejuvenate your neck and improve the contours of your chin and jawline, including a double chin.

Avg Cost: $6000 - $10k
Avg Recovery: 10 - 14 Days
Discomfort Level:
Anesthesia: Local, General or IV Sedation

Some people feel that their neck gives away their age. A neck lift can give you a more youthful appearance by contouring your neck, getting rid stubborn fat deposits and eliminating loose, excess tissues that create the appearance of a “turkey neck.” A neck lift can rejuvenate your neck and improve the contours of your chin and jawline, including a double chin. 

 

Depending on the extent of your neck lift contouring, the length of the recovery period will vary. Neck liposuction alone usually requires one week or less to recover, whereas the initial recovery period for neck lift surgery is typically 1-3 weeks. 

 

You will wear a chin strap or compression garment after surgery to reduce swelling and bruising. You are likely to feel tightness and soreness in your neck when the anesthesia wears off. Your discomfort in the first days after surgery will be managed by oral pain medication. 
 
If you decide on neck lift surgery or liposuction, you will receive pre- and post-operative instructions to prepare for your procedure. The initial recovery period for neck surgery is typically 1-3 weeks.

If your only concern is a sagging neck and/or neck wrinkles, removing excess skin, muscle tightening and tissue repositioning can be achieved with neck lift surgery. For this procedure, you will be given general or sedation anesthesia and incisions will be made around the ears.

 

For permanent fat reduction in the neck area, liposuction is performed under general or local anesthesia. Dr. Cho will place small incisions on each side of your neck or under your chin. Fat cells are loosened and removed using a suction tube known as a cannula.

There are several procedures that are commonly performed with a neck lift, including a facelift, a brow lift, a chin implant, laser resurfacing and other plastic surgery procedures.

You might opt for a more subtle non-surgical neck lift. However, the results would not last as long. Rejuvenation treatments like Botox and Ultherapy can smooth and tighten the appearance of your neck. Thread lifts can help improve the neck and jaw contour. Kybella or CoolSculpting can help with excess fat, and a mini facelift can eliminate jowls and sagging skin.

PROS

CONS

  • A neck lift tackles loose muscles, fat and excess skin in the neck at the same time.
  • You will have dramatic results.
  • Your neck lift results will last for years, unlike nonsurgical options that require multiple sessions and offer more temporary results.
  • You will have minimal scarring.
  • You will have 1-2 weeks of downtime.
  • You will have the expense of the procedure, since insurance will probably not cover it.
  • You will run the risks of surgery.
  • At some point you will begin to see the effects of aging.

A neck lift is considered to be a relatively safe surgery. You may experience under correction or a slight asymmetry after the procedure, which can be corrected under local anesthesia in the office. You might develop a hematoma or seroma during your recovery, where blood or fluid collections under your skin. To minimize the risk, you may have drains placed under your skin. There is a slight risk of facial nerve injury resulting in temporary weakness of one side of your lower face. This situation will usually resolve in 3-6 months.

Prior to your consultation, we want to learn as much as possible about you so that we can best prepare for your visit. We want to understand your concerns, goals, timeline, and your budget to help determine whether we have the appropriate tools and options to deliver your best results.

 

During your consultation, your assigned Patient Experience Coordinator and Dr. Cho will discuss your concerns in more depth. The doctor will do a physical assessment and then come up with treatment options that balance your needs to manage your downtime, your results, and how we can help address your goals. Many times, a multi-modal approach may be presented to help provide the best outcomes.
 
After discussing your options, you will continue your journey with your Patient Experience Coordinator to further review your quotes and review the next steps of your aesthetics plan.
