The neck is among the first places where the aging signs begin to show. Weight fluctuations and sun damage may also contribute to the sagging neck skin. Neck lift is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure to address this condition. Dr. Eugene Kim is a board certified plastic surgeon who will apply advanced surgical techniques to provide a sculpted and tighter look to the neck.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Kim will discuss all aspects, including the costs of neck lift. He provides neck lift to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding locations.
The monetary amount of neck lift cosmetic surgery can vary depending on the type surgical technique used, apart from other factors. While the dollar figure is not necessarily the best indicator of a surgeon’s skills, experienced and highly trained surgeons will usually charge a higher fee than a new surgeon.
If the patient is bothered by the appearance of excess fat deposits in the neck or below the chin, but skin elasticity is high, the plastic surgeon may recommend only neck liposuction. The cost of this procedure may be lower than other neck lift techniques. The dollar figure will also vary here depending on the amount of fat removal and the choice of liposuction technique.
Cervicoplasty procedure is designed to remove excess skin from the neck region. The remaining skin will be then be re-draped over the neck to create a smooth, taut appearance. The cost of this procedure will be at the lower end of the neck lift price or similar to that of neck liposuction. Dr. Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas for neck lift surgery.
This technique involves the restructuring of underlying loose neck muscles, in addition to removal of excess skin or fat. A small section of the platysma muscle may be removed and the neck muscles will be tightened to produce a more refined and contoured neck. This is a more comprehensive procedure that will usually also include cervicoplasty. The cost of platysmaplasty will be at the higher end of the scale.
A neck lift is often performed in conjunction with facelift surgery to create more harmonious outcomes. The combined procedure becomes more cost-effective than both surgeries performed separately. The costs of anesthesia, surgical venue charges, and post-operative costs are incurred only once in case of a combined surgery. Upper face procedures such as a brow lift or eyelid lift may also be combined with a neck lift surgery.
