Miami Neck Lift Surgery
The neck has some of the most delicate skin on our bodies and as we age, flaccidity and sagging can make us self-conscious. Some people have excess neck skin because they are genetically predisposed as well. At the Prestige Institute for Aesthetic Surgery Miami office, we offer neck lift surgery and liposuction to tuck and rejuvenate your neck, leading to a youthful appearance.
Also known as cervicoplasty, neck lift plastic surgery is ideal for patients with Turkey Wattle or hanging flaccid neck skin. A small incision is made under the chin and possibly behind the ears, to tuck and remove excess skin. In some cases a platysmaplasty could also be performed to further tighten the neck muscles or platysma muscles. In cases where liposuction is required, your surgeon will most likely start with the lipo to remove excess fat before the neck lift surgery. The cost of neck plastic surgery depends on the extent of the procedure, as well as the type of anesthesia used. Though cost may be slightly higher, we usually recommend general anesthesia for patient and surgeon safety.
Surgery time is generally 1-3 hours depending on the extent of the procedure. You can expect swelling, bruising and soreness after the procedure. Most people can return to work 10 to 14 days after surgery. The Prestige Institute staff will coordinate all follow up appointments with your surgeon to assure proper healing and recovery.
Cervicoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures at our Miami office. Our surgeons are ultra experienced with this procedure and our surgical suites accommodate patients properly.
