What is a neck lift?

A neck lift, also known as a cervicoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin from the neck while tightening the underlying muscles (platysmaplasty) to improve visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline, creating a smoother, slimmer, more elegant profile. Dr. Miller often performs neck lift and facelift procedures at the same time to restore a smoother, firmer, and more refined appearance.

How much does a neck lift in New York City cost?

The average cost of a non-surgical facelift in New York City in 2023 is around $15,000 to $70,000.

What questions should I ask my neck lift provider?

Make sure to ask the following questions during your neck lift consultation:

  • What are your qualifications and experience in performing neck lifts?
  • Can you show me before-and-after photos of previous neck lift patients?
  • What can I realistically expect from a neck lift in terms of results?
  • How do you tailor the neck lift procedure to individual patients?
  • What type of anesthesia will be used, and what are the risks associated with it?
  • What does the recovery process look like, and how much time will I need off work?
  • What are the potential risks and complications of a neck lift?
  • How long will the results of the neck lift last?
  • What is the total cost of the procedure, including any additional fees?
  • What is your policy on revisions if I’m not satisfied with the results?

What are the benefits of a neck lift?

Neck lift surgery offers a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Reduces sagging skin and excess fat in the neck area
  • Defines the jawline for a more youthful appearance
  • Tightens loose skin, improving overall neck contour
  • Minimizes the appearance of “turkey neck” or “double chin”
  • Enhances facial harmony by balancing the neck with other facial features
  • Boosts self-confidence and self-image
  • Offers long-lasting results compared to non-surgical alternatives
  • Can be combined with other facial procedures for comprehensive rejuvenation
  • Requires relatively short recovery time for a surgical procedure

What is done in a neck lift?

Dr. Miller performs neck lift surgery on an outpatient basis at the JCAHO Accredited office-based surgery facility in New York City. He ensures your comfort by using either general anesthesia or IV sedation. The neck lift takes approximately 2-3 hours and involves Dr. Miller making small incisions around the ear lobe and behind the ear, extending to the lower scalp. He then tightens the muscles, removes excess skin, extracts fat through liposuction, and closes the incisions.

What age is suitable for a neck lift?

A neck lift is typically suitable for individuals who are in their late 40s to 60s, as this is when noticeable signs of aging in the neck area often become more apparent. However, suitability for a neck lift depends more on the individual’s specific aging process and skin condition rather than age alone. Some people might be good candidates in their late 30s if they have significant neck sagging or skin laxity, while others might not need it until their 70s.

Is a neck lift painful?

After the surgery, you can expect some degree of discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the treated area. However, these postoperative symptoms are generally manageable with prescribed pain medications and following the post-surgery care instructions provided by Dr. Miller

How long can the results of a neck lift last?

The results of a neck lift can last for 10 to 15 years. The longevity of the results depends on various factors, including your skin quality, lifestyle, and how well you take care of your skin post-surgery. Factors like significant weight fluctuations, sun exposure, and smoking can affect the duration of the results.

What are the risks of a neck lift?

A neck lift carries risks like any surgical procedure, including infection, bleeding, nerve injury, scarring, and asymmetry. It’s also possible to experience changes in skin sensation, dissatisfaction with aesthetic results, and complications related to anesthesia.
