Neck Lift In Chattanooga, TN

Neck Lift Overview

Have you noticed that with time and age, the appearance of your neck and jaw area begins to change? It may no longer look as sculpted, attractive, or contoured as it once did. If your skin is starting to sag, wrinkle, and droop, Dr. Shire and his team understand how distressing signs of aging can be, and they are ready to help. 

A neck lift, also referred to as neckline surgery or turkey neck surgery, is a popular cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of your neck and jawline. Since some of the first signs of aging appear in the neck area, the idea of loose skin developing can be hard to accept. When you undergo a neck lift procedure, the results are a well-defined neck area, which melts off ages in your appearance. 

Here are more details about the neck lift procedure and what you can expect:

  • Small incisions are made, typically around the level of your ear and under your chin. The incisions near your ear are often hidden by your hairline 
  • Skin and muscles are tightened and smoothed, and then extra skin and fat can be removed, if necessary
  • Neck lifts can also be combined with liposuction and other cosmetic procedures for more remarkable results 

At Shire Plastic Surgery, Dr. Shire and his exceptional team are proud to offer their patients the best neck lift in Chattanooga and the surrounding areas.

  • Both men and women

How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?

A typical neck lift cost ranges between $4,000 and 9,000 dollars. When it comes to calculating the price of your neck lift, several factors may impact what you’ll end up paying. At Shire Facial Plastic Surgery, no two neck lift procedures are alike, so each patient is seen as unique, and provided with customized plans to fit their own individual goals, objectives, and needs. 

Below are a few factors that can affect the price of your neck lift procedure:  

  • Experience level of your cosmetic surgeon. Board-certified facial plastic surgeons provide the best results and often charge more than less skilled and experienced surgeons.
  • Additional fees. Anesthesia and facility fees may be applied to your bill and these amounts can vary based on your individual needs. Be sure to discuss these details with your surgeon during your consultation. 

Conscious sedation anesthesia is our top choice for procedures at our state-of-the-art facility. 

  • Location. Neck lift costs generally vary, and are based on your location. Areas with lower costs of living will typically have lower surgery prices, and areas with higher costs of living may have higher prices.

Frequently Asked Questions About Neck Lifts

What age is best for a neck lift?

To put it simply, the best age to receive a neck lift can vary for everyone. However, it is more common to notice signs of aging, wrinkling, and sagging in the neck area around age 40. Some individuals may start seeing signs earlier or later. Signs of aging depend on many factors, including heredity, stress, environmental changes, gravity, and more. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your neck and jawline, neckline surgery can be an excellent option at virtually any age.

How long does a neck lift last?

The results of a neck lift surgery last for approximately 10 years. After this, you may begin to see signs of aging return. Keep in mind that everyone ages differently, and there are environmental factors, such as sun exposure and skincare that can have an impact on how long your individual results may last.
