Thank you for your question. Neck Lift procedure will typically take 2 hours and recovery will normally take 10-14 days, however this will depend on patient to patient. Also, a lot of my patients will combine this surgery with facelift, platysmaplasty, neck lipo etc, therefore procedure time and recovery maybe extended.
All The Best
What is the procedure time (in hours) for a neck lift? What is the recovery time (in days) for a neck lift?
The length of surgery and the recovery time depend on the type of necklift that is performed and whether it's combined with some form of a facelift. My most popular facelift is the minimally invasive, short incision facelift that has all the benefits of more invasive facelifts (traditional, mid-face and subperiosteal facelifts) but with these added benefits:
•very small incisions
•minimal tissue dissection = less bruising and swelling = rapid recovery
•can be performed in 90 minutes or less, with or without general anesthesia
•no incisions within the hair = no hair loss
•excess fat can be removed
•excess skin can removed from the neck through a small incision under the chin
•cheeks, chin and jaw line can be augmented with dermal fillers (I prefer Perlane) or facial implants
•most patients fly back home to parts all over the world in as little as 3 days post-op
Formal Necklifts, typically require facelifts as well to avoid unsightly skin pleats arond the lower part of the era, take 4-6 hours to complete both surgeries and will take months to recover. Hope this helps.
Neck lifts (platysmaplasty) takes 2-3 hrs under local for $5500.
Neck lifts can be a platysmaplasty ($5500) which is cutting under the chin which takes 2-3 hrs or they can be more involved such as pulling the jawline/neck back toward the ear ($9800 on special) which takes 5 hrs. Both are done under local and easy to undergo.
Surgery and Recovery Time for Necklift
Surgery typically takes about 2 hours for the average patient. Recovery in the immediate post op period will take 10-14 days.
Procedural time and healing time for a neck lift
In our practice, a neck lift takes approximately 1-1/2 hours, usually under a general anesthetic. The lower face and neck lift takes approximately 2-1/2 -3 hours. The recovery time for either procedure is about 2 weeks of some degree of swelling and bruising. For many examples, please see the link below
Procedure time and recovery for neck lift
Not everyone has the same type of neck lift, so you would need to be evaluated to determine what procedure would be best for you. The exact type of procedure would determine the procedure time and the time could also vary by surgeon. I would say as a rough estimate, that it normally should not take more than a few hours. The recovery time can vary by the exact procedure as well, but I would say an estimate for the immediate recovery time would be 1-2 weeks.
Cost, and anesthetic , and recovery for neck lift?
It is impossible to give you an answer to this question without seeing photographs to determine which type of procedure would be best for you. If you have jowls and excess skin in your neck you will need a full facelift not just a neck lift. See a very experienced surgeon for this and shop quality not price.
