Neck Lift Cost
Neck Lift Procedures are performed to reduce signs of aging on a patient’s neck. Often as we age, we acquire excess or sagging skin across the jowls and neck, as well as develop fine lines and wrinkles. A neck lift procedure removes the excess skin across the neck and helps to tighten the skin and tissue to rejuvenate the patient’s appearance.
Insurance providers are very unlikely to cover the cost of the procedure since they are undertaken by patients to address concerns over signs of aging. Procedures performed for aesthetic reasons are rarely covered by insurance providers as they help fund procedures undertaken for medical reasons. This means that the majority of patients will need to fund the entire procedure themselves. RealSelf state that the average cost of the procedure is $8,925 and the procedure can range from $2,000 to $15,500 depending on how extensive the procedure is. However, the American Society of Plastic Surgery states that the average cost for the procedure in 2020 in the United States is $5,774 but this does not include all the costs of the procedure and so the overall price will be more than this. These prices vary due to the fact there are many factors that will greatly affect the cost of any cosmetic procedure. Some of the main factors that will impact the cost of the procedure include:
- The surgical technique performed
- Type of anesthesia used
- The length of the surgery
- If another surgery is combined with the procedure
- Hospital or operating room charges
- Experience and expertise of surgeon
- Surgery location
- Aftercare products
- Consultations and check-up appointments
- Post procedure complications
Mini Neck Lift Cost
A Mini Neck Lift Procedure is suitable for patients with more moderate concerns. The procedure is less extensive than a other surgical techniques and therefore has much smaller incision lines and scars. Often patients who are having a type of facelift procedure performed will choose to undergo a mini lift on their neck alongside their surgery so that their results are balanced. Although their main concerns will be with facial aging, many facelift patients have concerns with signs of aging on their neck or wish to ensure that their face and neck are well balanced. RealSelf states that the average cost for a mini surgical lift is around $2,000 since the surgery is far quicker and requires a smaller procedure.
Cost Of A Neck Lift And Lower Face Lift
Since the procedure only alters the appearance of a patient’s neck, many patients choose to combine the procedure with additional surgery. Most often, a neck lift is combined with a type of Facelift Procedure such as a mini facelift or a full facelift procedure. In other cases, the surgery is combined with a Brow Lift or Blepharoplasty procedure.
However, a lower facelift procedure is very frequently combined with a neck lift since it is performed on the lower third of the face and so combining the two procedures will address signs of aging across the neck, jawline, and chin. According to RealSelf, the average cost of a facelift is over $12,200 but they state that the cost of a lower facelift is $9,725.

How Long Does A Neck Lift Last?
The results of the procedure are permanent due to the fact that excess skin is removed from the neck. However, this does not mean that no future signs of aging will occur on a patient’s neck. It is normal for visible signs of aging to continue to occur on a patient’s face or neck even if they have had surgery. Any signs of aging will be far less significant for patients who have had surgery than for those who have not undergone surgery and so most patients do not require another procedure or any further treatment. However, this does depend on the patient’s age when they underwent the procedure. Some patients do decide to have neck or facelifts in their 40’s and so their face or neck are likely to show signs of aging over the next 20 or 30 years. In some cases, patients choose to undergo non-surgical treatments such as Botox or fillers to keep their surgery results maintained even as they continue to age. You can discuss the potential longevity of your results and any concerns or questions during your surgical consultation.
Non-Surgical Neck Lift Cost
There are various non-surgical options that can be undertaken that will all produce slightly different results and be suitable for different patients. This is why significant research into these procedures and consulting with a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon over surgical and non-surgical treatment options is recommended.
Non-surgical treatments tend to be significantly cheaper than undergoing a surgical neck lift. However, any type of non-surgical treatment will have less dramatic results than a surgical procedure would. Non-surgical treatments are therefore more suitable for patients with more moderate concerns over aging. Furthermore, non-surgical treatments do not have permanent results so it can be more expensive in the long run than having surgery if multiple treatments need to be performed.
Botox and dermal fillers are potential non-surgical treatments that can be used to reduce signs of aging on a patient’s neck. According to Healthline, the average cost of Botox is around $400 and the effects of the treatment tend to last three to four months before another Botox treatment will be needed to maintain the results. Alternatively, dermal fillers tend to produce similar results to Botox treatments but last for much longer as they can last up to a year. However, dermal fillers do cost more as Healthline states that injectable dermal fillers tend to cost an average of between $625 to $800 per treatment.
Laser Neck Lift Cost
A laser neck lift is another type of non-surgical treatment that can be performed to help reduce signs of aging on the neck. Laser treatments tend to work by causing heat damage to specific layers of skin which causes the skin to contract and collagen production to be triggered. Healthline states that the average cost of laser treatment is around $2,000 and the results last much longer than from Botox or fillers. However, results from laser treatments are not permanent and so patients will need to pay for more laser treatments across their lifetime if they wish for the results to be maintained. Additionally, laser treatments will have less significant results than a surgical procedure would achieve and so are most suitable for patients with moderate concerns of sagging skin and aging.
Funding A Neck Lift Procedure
Since insurance providers very rarely cover the cost of any type of surgical or non-surgical neck lift procedure, most patients fund the entire procedure themselves. This is why financial plans are available for patients so that they can receive a loan for their procedure and pay for their surgery in monthly instalments. There are different companies and financial plans that patients tend to be able to choose from but it is important to research what options a surgeon offers and what are each company’s specific policies.

The cost of a neck lift procedure as well as the financing options are extremely important aspects that potential patients need to consider. However, any potential Dallas neck lift patients should make sure to research all other aspects of the procedure such as the surgical techniques, the recovery period, and any risks of undergoing the surgery. Additionally, it is important that potential patients book a consultation with a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon so that they can have a professional assessment and receive expert advice on their procedure.
