How much, on average, would it cost for a neck lift?

I recognize that you cannot provide an exact amount but a ballpark figure would be welcome too. I'm in my mid-50s and my face has retained a fairly youthful quality that my neck negates much to my dismay. I have the usual laugh lines near my eyes and mouth but I can work with those -- I know no one is mistaking me for a 20-year-old and laugh lines are honorable and earned wrinkles! My neck, however, tells no lies. I avoid wearing clothes or jewelry that draw attention to that area but that sucks! I want to wear what I want to wear not what I have to! I always said I would never get cosmetic surgery but it's a different world now with so many options available and my mind has changed. Of course, finances are still an impediment but I have options there as well. I'm a little nervous to hear the price range but I'm hoping to be very encouraged instead of the opposite. I appreciate your time and help immensely!

An isolated necklift would probably cost around $15,000, which would include OR and anesthesia.  That will vary by surgeon and by center.  It is very important that you consult with a qualified cosmetic doctor to discuss what you issues are and what treatment options are available to you. You can connect with a cosmetic doctor in your area right here on zwivel by clicking the "ask a cosmetic doctor" button and then start a virtual consultation.  You will get multiple recommendations and estimated fees from doctors who respond.

Thank you for sharing your question.  You would need a Surgical Neck Lift for the best results.  There are some lasers that promise skin tightening, but still will not have as good of a result as surgical skin removal.  Here in NJ, a Neck Lift goes for about $8400.  This is the price for the Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Hospital, and Anesthesia combined.  Your best bet would be to visit a few Board Certified Plastic Surgeons for a consultation.  I hope this was helpful to you.  

Best Wishes, Dr. B.
