Sagging skin and wrinkles commonly develop in the neck, detracting from the youthful contours of the face. With a neck lift at Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center, patients can rejuvenate the neck for a younger appearance. We offer this and other facial surgery procedures to residents of Washington, DC, Arlington, and nearby communities in Maryland and Virginia from our offices in Vienna, Woodbridge, and Rockville.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a rejuvenation technique that eliminates excess skin and fat in the neck to produce a smoother, tighter appearance. The neckline is especially susceptible to sagging skin, with jowls, double chins, and “turkey necks” detracting from the jawline. For a comprehensive facial rejuvenation procedure, patients may choose to combine their neck lift with a facelift.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost in Washington, DC?
The cost of your neck lift will vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. To schedule any treatment, we ask for a $1,000 deposit that is nonrefundable. Two weeks before surgery, the patient will have a pre-op appointment where his or her full balance is due to be paid in full.
We offer flexible financing options, including Alphaeon® and CareCredit® to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. Alphaeon® and CareCredit® pay us in full and the patient pays the financing company a monthly fee. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is the Neck Lift Procedure Like?
During a neck lift procedure, an incision is typically made under the chin. Through this incision, we will remove excess skin and fat to tighten the neck and eliminate wrinkles. In some cases, we will use liposuction to sufficiently remove fat from the neck. If the patient is combining their neck lift procedure with a facelift, additional incisions may be used to address the desired areas of the face.
What is Recovery like Following a Neck Lift?
After a neck lift, the initial recovery period requires about a week of downtime. During this time, patients will have to take time off of work and other activities. Swelling, bruising, and minor discomfort may be experienced for several weeks after treatment. We recommend that patients avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for at least a month after their surgery.
Are the Results from My Neck Lift Permanent?
A neck lift can produce long-lasting results that take years off of the appearance. However, this procedure cannot stop the natural aging process, and further changes in the neck may develop over time. To ensure that results last as long as possible, we encourage patients to maintain healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits.
