If you have sagging neck skin or a double chin, a neck lift can be your solution to a younger, contoured appearance. This surgical procedure delivers natural-looking results that will last for years. Plastic Surgery Consultants offers neck lifts to men and women living in Lexington County, Richland County, and the neighboring areas of South Carolina.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the neck to produce a smoother, tighter appearance. This treatment can be used to address a double chin and loose or sagging neck skin (sometimes called a “turkey wattle”), creating a more defined jawline. However, this treatment will not help signs of aging in the mid face. If you are looking for further rejuvenation results, you may be a good candidate for a facelift.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
All neck lifts are performed with the aid of anesthesia to ensure that the patient remains entirely comfortable for the duration of the surgery. Then, incisions are discreetly made around the ears and underneath the chin. This allows us to remove excess skin and fat, sculpting the neck to produce a taut appearance. Afterwards, the incisions are closed and the procedure is complete. A neck lift can take up to four hours, depending on the results desired.
What is Recovery Like Following a Neck Lift?
Most neck lift patients at our South Carolina center are able to return to work and light activities in one to two weeks, with final results evident in approximately four to six weeks. Based on your unique goals, Dr. Wassermann can provide more detailed information about what to expect after your neck lift.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
The cost of your neck lift will vary depending on your specific treatment goals. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wassermann. During your consultation, you will work with Dr. Wassermann to develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. To help make our treatments accessible to those who need them, we accept a variety of payment options as well as financing through CareCredit®.
