Compassion and Precision

What is a Neck Lift?

A Neck Lift is a procedure that involves making small incisions behind or below the ear and within the hairline to pull the skin on the neck tighter. Dr. Santos also performs direct neck lifts, which use an incision down the midline of the neck to correct signs of aging and loose skin.

The Difference

Neck Lift vs. Facelift

Neck Lifts target only the sagging skin beneath the chin and neck, whereas facelifts target the entire lower face. Patients often get both procedures done simultaneously, tightening their complexion entirely and erasing those pesky folds and creases in the skin.

A New, Exciting Experience

What can a neck lift do?

Neck Lifts are extremely beneficial for individuals in good health but are frustrated with sagging neck skin. Dr. Santosa helps you eliminate unflattering, volumeless skin by pulling back the excess skin and tightening it. You should talk with your primary care doctor or let us know during your consultation if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any underlying medical conditions. A neck lift may not be a good option for you, but there may be an alternative aesthetic treatment that is safer for your condition. Schedule your consultation today to find out what treatment is best for you.

Neck Lift Procedure

Before your procedure, you are advised to avoid alcohol, smoking, certain prescription drugs, and unhealthy foods in the two weeks before your neck lift. This will ensure that our Atlanta neck lift patients are in their best health for the procedure. Dr. Santosa will begin by cleaning the treatment area thoroughly to avoid infection. Incisions are made as specified in your surgical plan. Dr. Santosa will then pull the skin taut to eliminate any sagging, excess skin. The incisions will then be closed and bandaged. Your skin will be gently cleaned once more, and you will be ready to begin your recovery.

Neck Lift Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

Our Atlanta neck lift patients will see immediate results following their procedure, but it will take about two weeks for most of the swelling and bruising to go down. After those two weeks, you will still need to be careful, though you can return to daily life almost entirely. It takes about a month to two months for full results to appear. For the first week after your neck lift, you will need to continue avoiding unhealthy foods, alcohol, smoking, certain prescription drugs, and turning your neck. It is advised that you turn your entire body to look at things if necessary, as turning your head could irritate or re-open your healing incisions.

For at least a week, you should sleep on your back with your head elevated to help reduce swelling. You will have a follow-up appointment within twenty-four hours of your procedure. Your final results will consist of tightened, rejuvenated skin around the lower chin and neck. Dr. Santosa has supplements that she often gives her neck lift patients that help reduce bruising. Let Dr. Santosa know if you experience these feelings during your recovery.

Maintaining your Neck Lift Results

Neck lifts affect only the tightness and positioning of the skin, not the skin’s tone, texture, or blemishes. Taking care of your body is essential in keeping your skin healthy and maintaining the best results possible. Dr. Katherine B. Santosa will be continuously checking in on you during your recovery with follow-ups and phone calls to ensure everything is going well and to answer any questions that may arise. Schedule your neck lift consultation today with Dr. Santosa.

Neck Lift Frequently Asked Questions

Neck lifts require incisions during the procedure, meaning that scars will be present. However, they will not be noticeable due to the hiding of the incisions within the hairline and behind the ears.

You are under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable during your procedure.

Possible risks from neck lifts include hematoma, blood clots, nerve damage, and infection. These side effects are not common. Dr. Santosa will inform you of all the necessary precautions you should take in order to drastically reduce the chances of these risks occurring.

Given that every patient and treatment plan is different, it is difficult to give an accurate price for your neck lift. On average, neck lifts cost around $9,000. Neck lifts are not medically necessary and are not covered by insurance. Dr. Santosa’s team will be able to answer all questions regarding pricing, payment, and financing during your consultation.
