How Does a Neck Lift Work?
The neck is particularly subject to the effects of aging for two reasons: skin laxity is more obvious there, and the platysma muscle—the muscle from the top of your chest to the hinge of your jaw—weakens with age, resulting in what is commonly called muscle banding. The neck lift corrects these concerns, as well as redistributes adipose tissue that may have gathered close to your jawline to form jowls. A neck lift is often paired with a lower facelift because the muscle groups work together to shape the lower half of your face. Dr. Stein carefully conceals the incisions behind the ears or beneath the chin to tighten the platysma muscles, reposition fatty tissue for a more sculpted jawline, and remove excess skin that’s loosened over time. Your neck becomes sleek and youthful, with a defined jaw area and tighter skin and muscle.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
As with any cosmetic procedure, cost is always a consideration patients must use in their decision to undergo treatment. Dr. Stein has worked hard to cultivate a practice that provides world-class patient care while keeping prices competitive for the Raleigh area.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a neck lift’s average cost in 2019 was $5,110. Because this can be a lot of money to most people, Stein Plastic Surgery is affiliated with financing partners to help create a payment plan that best aligns with your specific situation.
