Of all the facial cosmetic procedures, Baton Rouge plastic surgeon, Dr. Erick Sanchez, considers the combination of liposuction and contouring surgery of the neck a dramatic aesthetic enhancement for many patients. A neck lift reverses the natural aging process by eliminating sagging neck skin and fatty deposits. This procedure at the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge in Central Louisiana is not only common for aging patients, but also weight loss patients as it removes and tightens loose neck skin. Neck lift surgery produces a sharper, tauter profile that makes the patient look years younger and slimmer.

From general personality to bed side manner to surgical skills he is the best ?"- T.O. / Facebook / Jul 31, 2018
Good candidates are men or women who demonstrate:
- Localized fat deposits under the chin
- Looseness of neck muscle and/or neck skin
- Non-smokers or those who have ceased smoking two months prior to the procedure
- Overall good health
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, we will evaluate the patient’s underlying bone anatomy and make a determination as to whether the chin position and its influence on the appearance of the neck is an issue. This evaluation will help piece together an individual treatment plan. During surgery, an incision is typically made under the chin. If there are fat pockets present, the excess fat will be removed with liposuction. Then, any loose skin is excised and trimmed away. The final step is when the underlying tissue and muscles are pulled tight and the remaining skin re-draped and secured with sutures to produce a more youthful neck appearance.
Swelling and bruising will be present after necklift surgery. A compressive neck dressing is used to help control swelling and to help the neck skin adapt to the new neck contour. Most patients can resume modest activity in 2 weeks. A complete recovery from necklift surgery occurs in about 3-4 weeks. This surgery creates a tighter neck that appears softer and younger.
The cost for necklift surgery will vary by patient and by each specific surgical case. The average price for this procedure generally costs between $5,500 to $7,000.
Create a Tighter Neck
Necklift surgery can result in a gorgeous profile and a younger looking neck for both men and women. It creates especially nice outcomes for weight loss patients where a significant amount of loose skin resides after the weight loss.
