What Is A Mini Neck Lift?
Turning back the signs of aging in the face and neck can range from using nonsurgical options to electing a mini neck lift, a full or complete facelift and a necklift. Facial aging is accelerated by gravity, excessive sun exposure, and smoking. The signs are seen on the surface of the face and neck skin as wrinkles and in the deeper layers of the face and neck as soft tissue loss that intensifies skin sagging.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Casas may ask you to point out exactly what you would like to see improved. Dr. Casas may discuss with you additional surgical and nonsurgical procedures that can be performed to improve your result. A mini neck lift is frequently performed in the office setting under light sedation. Dr. Laurie Casas will help you better understand if you are a candidate for this minimal scar neck lift surgery. Weeks prior to surgery, Dr. Casas will prepare your skin for surgery with skin care products incorporating retin-A and often times Botox®, fillers, and soft tissue volumetric agents.
What is the recovery time for a mini neck lift?
A mini neck lift usually takes 1-2 hours and the scars are usually concealed inside the ear structures and sometimes in the crease behind the ear. The goal of the face and neck tightening is to look “fresh,” not pulled and too tight. There are many techniques which Dr. Casas will discuss with you so that your face and neck lift are customized to meet your expectations. After surgery, Dr. Casas will place protective bandages around your head. These bandages will be removed two or three days after surgery. Each patient recovers at a different pace, and Dr. Casas will instruct you to take supplements before and after surgery that will help to decrease the swelling and bruising. Massage therapy is also used to quicken the recovery process. Most patients are back to work in ten to fourteen days and are fully recovered by three to six months.
The Cost of a Mini Neck Lift
As with any surgery, mini neck lift cost can fluctuate based on a few different factors. A range you can expect is anywhere between $3,500 and $20,000. This is based on the complexity of your procedure, techniques used, the surgeon you're working with, and any medical resources used.
Insurance may not be of much help here, but many patients take advantage of payment plans or personal loans to manage the cost of their procedure. Although a mini neck lift can be less invasive than a standard neck lift, the operation can still be quite costly. We'll be able to explore your payment options during your consultation and do our best to structure a price that you can work with. You'll also get the option to take a look at mini neck lift before and after photos from previous patients.
It's important to remember a big factor in the cost of your procedure is the surgeon you work with. This is part of what sets Dr. Casas apart from the rest. You won't be charged for services you don't need, and the financial commitment you make will be in line with what you can afford. We do our best to cater to the exact needs of every patient while providing results that will stay within the financial scope of what you're willing to commit to.
