What To Expect After
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR A NECKLIFT?
A: Neck lifts are performed on anyone who has excess skin around the neck creating a “turkey neck” appearance and who wants a sharper angle from the jawline to the neck. It is very common to perform a neck lift when a traditional facelift is simply not warranted. Good candidates also have good skin tone but may have extra fat that gives the impression of being overweight even when that person is in good physical shape.
Q: HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A NECKLIFT?
A: As with any surgery, we provide you with detailed pre-op instructions to follow so that you are ready for your surgery. Some of the things we ask is that you stop smoking a few weeks prior to and after surgery to help with recovery; avoid taking any medications or vitamin supplements that thin the blood; arrange for transportation to and from the procedure; and be sure you are prepared for a few days of rest following your neck lift.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE APPOINTMENT?
Q: HOW LONG DOES A NECKLIFT PROCEDURE TAKE?
A: A neck lift takes between one to three hours based on how extensive the procedure is and whether other procedures are done in conjunction with the neck lift.
Q: WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
A: You can expect to see some changes within the first couple of weeks following the surgery as the swelling and bruising subside. The final results of your surgery take time and are more noticeable to you within a couple of months. Please note that the result from a neck lift should be subtle so that you look rejuvenated without looking like you’ve had plastic surgery.
Q: WHAT IS THE COST OF A NECKLIFT?
A: The cost of a neck lift varies with each patient depending on several factors, including whether other procedures are being performed in conjunction with the neck lift and the extent of the surgery to achieve the desired look. During your consultation, we can discuss the costs with you along with our payment and financing options. We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards along with offering financing through CareCredit®.
