A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that can be used to remove excess fat and tighten sagging skin on the neck.

Typical costs:

  • A neck lift alone typically costs between $4,000 and $8,000, depending on the patient and what needs to be done. However, a neck lift often is done in conjunction with additional surgery, such as a facelift, which can bring the total to $16,000 or more, according to plastic surgeons at RealSelf.com[1] . Cruise Plastic Surgery in California charges $3,950 to $7,500 for a neck lift. Turkle & Associates[2] in Indiana charges $5,000. And the Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery[3] , in California, charges about $6,000.
  • A neck lift is considered a cosmetic procedure, so it typically is not covered by health insurance.

What should be included:
  • During an initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss patient goals, examine the neck, and discuss the neck lift procedure, risks and cost.
  • For a neck lift, after the patient is placed under either general or 'twilight' anesthesia, the surgeon will make an incision under the chin and/or in front of or behind the ears, and will then remove excess skin and tissue and possibly tighten the neck muscles, using sutures to secure skin and tissue in its new position. A neck lift takes about three hours and usually is done as an outpatient procedure. The Cleveland Clinic[4] has an overview of the procedure.
  • During follow-up visits, the doctor will check healing progress and patient satisfaction.
Additional costs:
  • The doctor probably will prescribe pain medication and antibiotics following surgery.
  • A compression garment[5] that costs about $30 to $35 must be worn after surgery.
  • Recovery typically requires ten days to two weeks off work.
Discounts:
  • Many surgeons offer discounts to patients having multiple procedures. Patients getting a neck lift sometimes also choose to have liposuction, a face lift or a chin implant.
Shopping for a neck lift:
  • A good candidate for a neck lift would be a non-smoker in good health who is close to ideal weight.
  • Tip: Make sure the doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has privileges at an accredited hospital, even if the surgery is not taking place there. Both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons[6] and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery[7] offer referral services. It also is a good idea to ask to see before-and-after photographs of previous patients.
  • Risks of a neck lift include bleeding, infection, injury to nerves, scarring, complications from anesthesia and even death.
