Neck Lift (LowerRhytidectomy) Surgery
Neck lift plastic surgery is a predictable and safe neck contouring option for tightening sagging skin in the area. You neck can attain a smoother, tauter, and more youthful appearance with this surgical procedure. Neck lift is an elective procedure, which means that your insurance won’t be covering the costs. This makes the cost an important starting point for many patients considering the procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon will walk you through the various aspects, benefits, and limitations of the surgery during the pre-operative consultation. This discussion will include approximate costs as well. The primary goal of your surgeon will be to help you make a well-considered decision. Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides neck lift surgery to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding communities.
Factors Involved In Cost of Lower Rhytidectomy
There may be various procedures involved in a neck lift. This can cause wide variations in the overall cost of procedure. Also, different cosmetic surgeons tend to charge differently for the same procedure. You need to understand that surgeon fee is not a suitable representation of their skill set or credentials. Your neck lift cost may depend on several factors, especially the various procedures included in the cosmetic surgery. Your surgeon will base their fees on the number of procedures required to accomplish your aesthetic goals. This may include removal of excess skin, liposuction, and tightening of neck muscles. This is how individual procedures look like:
People with fairly elastic skin make ideal candidates for neck lift cosmetic surgeries. You should be unhappy with the excess fat under your skin or in the neck region. Neck and chin liposuction are generally more affordable than a complete neck lift. However, the overall costs depend on the technique used for the liposuction and the degree of fat excision.
Cervicoplasty involves removal of excess skin. Your surgeon will re-drape remaining skin over your neck area for a smoother and tauter appearance. Individual cervicoplasty procedures are generally affordable. The sticker price may be similar to neck liposuction.
Neck muscles are treated in platysmaplasty to become firmer and develop a more youthful appearance. Your surgeon may even remove a small portion of the neck muscles to achieve your aesthetic goals. The remaining muscles will be brought together for a tauter, smoother, and more contoured neck. Costs are generally higher when cervicoplasty is performed with a platysmaplasty.
Components of Neck Lift Cost
There are various components to the overall financial responsbilities of getting a neck lift. For instance, what you pay at the end of the procedure may include the surgeon’s fee, anesthetist fee, facility costs, and other post-operative expenses, such as medical exams, follow-up appointments with your surgeon, prescription drugs, and special garments. These cost components vary between different practices. In fact, neck lift cost can differ between two patients that get the procedure at the same practice. When you do a cost comparison, keep in mind the quality of care and services that you will receive at a particular practice.
