The neck area is one of the first places to display signs of aging, including wrinkles and sagging skin. Coastal Cosmetic Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Timothy E. Fee, MD, offers neck lifts for those residents who live in Jacksonville, Fleming Island, the surrounding communities in North Florida, and throughout the world.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that helps to improve the appearance of the neck and jawline. With age, skin can begin to sag and band, causing wrinkles, a double chin, and/or jowls. A neck lift helps to tighten and tone the area underneath the chin, giving patients a well-defined jawline that gives them a youthful appearance.
What Are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?
A neck lift can reverse the sign of aging along the neck region. It tightens and tones the skin, eliminating the dreaded double chin and turkey waddle. A neck lift may prevent the need for a facelift for some.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Ideal candidates for a neck lift include those individuals who have loose and sagging skin in the neck region and who desire to tighten the neck skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and banding.
What is the Procedure for a Neck Lift?
Neck lifts are performed under general anesthesia at Coastal Cosmetic Center’s nationally accredited on-site surgical facility, Coastal Surgery Center, in Jacksonville, FL. During a neck lift, Dr. Fee makes several tiny incisions along the neck to access the muscles. The muscles are then tightened to eliminate banding across the neck. Any excess skin is removed via liposuction. The incisions are then closed with sutures and dressed with a compression bandage to hold the newly conformed neck in place. Surgery can last anywhere from one to two hours for a neck lift depending on the extent of correction needed.
What is the Recovery for a Neck Lift?
The compression bandage should be worn for at least a week to support healing and prevent neck strain. You should also avoid excessive neck movement for at least two weeks following surgery. Results are immediate and become more defined with time.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
All procedures are unique to each individual patients, so costs will vary. All applicable costs will be discussed during your initial consultation at one of our convenient locations in Jacksonville or Fleming Island. For your convenience, we offer financing options to assist you in paying for your procedure.
