A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.
How much does a neck lift cost?
The average cost of a neck lift is $5,774, according to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This average cost is only part of the total price – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. Please consult with your plastic surgeon's office to determine your final fee.
A surgeon's fee for neck lift surgery will be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic office location.
Most health insurance plans do not cover neck lift surgery or its complications, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
Neck lift costs may include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments
- Prescriptions for medication
- Surgeon's fee
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for a neck lift, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
