Planning for costs is an essential part of preparing for surgery for many patients. Since each surgery is different, it is challenging to estimate expenses without a face-to-face consultation first. If you’re considering neck lift surgery in Sarasota, we encourage you to schedule a consultation. Each patient receives an individualized quote as part of their visit with us. 

A neck lift is the most effective option for smoothing and tightening the skin and tissues on the neck. While some highly effective non-surgical treatments that provide skin tightening, these treatments can’t recreate your neck’s youthful contours.

Our surgeons carefully place neck lift incisions to tighten the skin without visible scarring. Incisions are usually under the chin and near the ears.

You can have a neck lift performed alongside other surgical and non-surgical treatments. Many facelift patients choose to add a neck lift, providing rejuvenation to the mid- and lower face and the neck area. We can also pair a neck lift with laser resurfacing or Botox®.

In plastic surgery, age matters less than appearance. The best age for this procedure will depend on a patient’s genetics and skin quality. If you have recently lost a dramatic amount of weight, you may be a good candidate for a neck lift in your 20s or 30s. Patients who are getting a neck lift to offset signs of aging typically have this surgery done between the ages of 50 and 70.

Neck lift surgery typically takes three to three and a half hours.
