What is a Neck Lift?
A lower rhytidectomy, also known as a necklift, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates and enhances the appearance of your neck. A neck lift removes sagging skin and fatty deposits along the jawline, under the chin, and along the front of the neck.
How Can a Neck Lift Help Take Years Off My Appearance?
As we age, our skin begins to sag and lose its elasticity.For many adults, the neckline is the first area where this effect of aging can be seen prominently. A sagging neckline can add years to an otherwise youthful appearance. By correcting this sagging skin and firming up the throat area, a neck lift can take years off your appearance. Neck lifts can correct the dreaded “turkey neck” and can be combined with other procedures.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of a neck lift:

- Reduction in excess skin
- Achieves results that dieting and exercise alone cannot
- Minimal Scarring
What is the Recovery from a Neck Lift Like?
Immediately after your neck lift, you will need to be driven home and plan for a few days of rest to recover. Supportive bandages will be wrapped around your neck to protect sensitive tissue and aid the healing process by supporting your neck muscles. This compressive bandage also helps reduce swelling and discomfort during the first few days of recovery.
During your recovery, you must keep your head elevated, even while sleeping. Neck movement should be restricted as much as possible for the first two weeks after your surgery. Stitches are typically removed a week after the surgery and most of the soreness and swelling will subside in the first two weeks after the procedure.
You should be able to return to normal physical activity after about two to three weeks following your neck lift surgery.
What Does a Neck Lift Cost in San Diego?
The price of the neck lift will vary according to the extent of each individual procedure, and any other procedures you may choose to combine with it. Since the neck lift is considered cosmetic surgery, it is not typically covered by health insurance. To help our patients manage out-of-pocket costs, Pollack Plastic Surgery provides flexible financing options and accepts payments in cash, personal checks, and credit cards for your convenience.
