If loose skin, muscle bands, or sagging jowls affect your confidence, your team at the Landgon Center can help. A neck lift restores a firm, slender neck, and sculpted jawline. This anti-aging procedure can be performed alone or with a facelift to achieve youthful definition and tightness.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the neck. It addresses loose or sagging skin, excess fat, and muscle banding. Dr. Langdon makes a single incision under the chin during a neck lift. No incisions are needed around the ears. The skin and underlying muscles are tightened and repositioned to create a more youthful and contoured appearance.
The cost of a neck lift varies depending on a variety of factors, including the surgeon’s experience and expertise, the geographic location of the practice, and the extent of the procedure. Each neck lift differs depending on your needs and goals.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports an average neck lift cost of $5774. This price does not include anesthesia, lab testing, medications, or other expenses. We recommend a consultation with Dr. Langdon so he can assess your needs and provide an accurate estimate.
What Can a Neck Lift Treat?
A neck lift can address a variety of cosmetic concerns related to the neck area, including:
Loose or sagging skin: As we age, our skin loses elasticity, which can result in loose or sagging skin around the neck.
Excess fat: Some people develop excess fat deposits under the chin or along the jawline, which can create the appearance of a double chin or “turkey neck.”
Muscle banding: Over time, the muscles in the neck can begin to separate and create visible bands that are particularly noticeable when you talk or swallow.
Jowls: Sagging skin around the jawline can create the appearance of jowls, which can be addressed with a neck lift in combination with a facelift.
A neck lift or facelift can be performed alone, but in many cases, they are combined into one procedure. People who have significant concerns with their neck area but not with the lower or mid-face will benefit from a neck lift alone. However, many people with concerns about sagging and loose skin in the neck also have problems with the lower face and jawline and may require a facelift
Dr. Langdon will discuss your goals and desired results during your consultation and help you determine whether you will benefit from a combination of a facelift and neck lift.
For those not ready for surgery, the Langdon Center offers another option. TriLift uses three types of energy to non-invasively tighten and sculpt the face and neck. This option works best for those without a significant amount of sagging skin.
What is Recovery Like From a Neck Lift?
Recovery from a neck lift typically takes one to two weeks. You will need to avoid strenuous activity and follow Dr. Langdon’s postoperative instructions carefully. You can expect to experience some swelling and minor bruising, but these symptoms should subside within a few days. Dr. Langdon will provide detailed aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure that you heal properly.
Dr. Langdon and all of his nurses and staff are very friendly and they know how to make you feel very comfortable. He is a very experienced doctor, I call him an artistic dr. because he’s so precise in his work. If you would like something done right, dr. Langdon is the one to see.
