Neck Lift in Minneapolis-St. Paul

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift improves the signs of aging along the jawline and neck. This procedure corrects excess deposits of fat under the chin, fat and skin that has caused jowls, loose neck skin, and muscle banding of the neck.

This is an average price, and is subject to change depending on each patient’s individual evaluation. Surgery cost includes anesthesia costs and the facility fee.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?

Patients who are not ready for a traditional facelift procedure, but are unhappy with excess skin around the neck and jawline often benefit from a neck lift. Ideal candidates are healthy, non-smokers who have realistic expectations for the outcome of their surgery. A neck lift turns back the aging clock producing a more youthful appearance, however, it cannot stop the aging process.

The Neck Lift Procedure

A neck lift procedure can be done using a traditional neck lift incision or a limited incision, depending on the degree of improvement desired. A traditional neck lift incision begins in the hairline near the sideburns and runs down and around the ear. Fat in the jowls and neck may be redistributed, and neck tissue repositioned. Excess skin will be trimmed away. An additional incision underneath the chin is often needed for liposuction.

A limited incision neck lift only calls for incisions around the ear. Since the incisions are shorter, results may not be as dramatic as those of a traditional neck lift incision.

Neck Lift Recovery

Following a neck lift, patients will wear a bandage around their face and neck to help minimize swelling during recovery. Drains may also be placed to collect any excess fluid to prevent complications. Common side effects include bruising, soreness, swelling, tightness, and temporary numbness.

It is important that patients keep their head elevated and their neck straight to ensure optimal healing. Do not apply ice to the neck area, as this can inhibit blood flow, resulting in death of the skin. Results can be seen as swelling and bruising subside. Commonly, patients can return to work within two weeks, and resume strenuous exercise after a few months.
