Your consultation with Dr. Lee
Dr. Lee will conduct a thoughtful, detailed consultation to understand your cosmetic concerns and
examine your neck and skin. She will review your surgical and medical history and discuss your
aesthetic goals. Based on your discussion and goals, she will design a detailed, fully customized
surgical plan to provide a neck lift procedure that achieves your ideal results.
If you’re having a combination procedure, adding another surgery such as eyelid surgery or a brow lift to your neck lift for more dramatic results, Dr. Lee will discuss your options and arrange for
these procedures to be performed at the same time. This results in less downtime and better cost
efficiency, achieving a more complete rejuvenation.
What to expect during the surgery
A neck lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made according to the
needs of each patient, based on their physical concerns and the requirements of the surgical
procedure for your ideal results.
Dr. Lee’s approach is conservative but highly effective. Typically, the incisions are made under the
chin and behind the ears. These incisions are made carefully and meticulously to ensure any scarring
is kept to the absolute minimum.
Using these incisions, she removes fat on the neck and under the chin and tightens the neck muscles.
From there, she lifts and tightens the skin, removing any excess. Dr. Lee addresses the deeper SMAS
layers (submuscular aponeurotic system) that make up the connective muscular tissues. She sharpens
and defines the jawline to create an elegant, refined silhouette.
Cost of a neck lift
The cost of your neck lift will vary depending on the complexity of your procedure and the type of neck lift
you require. The cost of a neck lift is higher if the process is more complex and includes submandibular
gland resection. If the neck lift procedure is relatively simple, your cost will be lower. You will know the
price of your custom neck lift with Dr. Lee once you have a consultation and she designs your surgical plan.
Your plan will include your price.
