Neck lift is an important cosmetic surgery procedure, which may be performed either as a standalone surgery or in conjunction with a facelift. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss various aspects of the neck lift surgery, including its estimated costs. The goal is to help the patient make an informed choice.
Patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and other areas may receive this procedure from Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen (Dr. V). Dr. V is an experienced, board certified facial plastic surgeon in the region.
Factors Affecting the Price
The cost of a neck lift surgery may differ from one practice to another, and in some cases, even from one patient to another at the same practice. A number of factors will go into determining the actual cost of surgery.
Where the practice is located can make a difference to the overall cost of a neck lift procedure. The cost of living index usually varies between any two regions, which will affect the average cost of most products and services, including cosmetic surgery procedures. For instance, the cost of a neck lift in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas may not be the same as the cost of a neck lift in Denver, CO
Fee of the Cosmetic Surgeon
The plastic surgeon who performs the neck lift surgery may charge a fee according to their qualifications, training, certifications, experience and recognition in the field of facial and neck surgeries. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), patients should choose the best surgeon for their needs, and factors such as the surgeon’s fee should only be a secondary consideration in such a choice.
Anesthesia and Surgical Room Costs
A neck lift surgery may be performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation. The fee charged by the anesthesiologist may depend on their skills and experience. The quality of surgical equipment, technologies, experienced staff and personalized care and service provided at a particular surgical facility will also make a difference to the costs of the operating room.
The overall cost of a neck lift will be determined according to the length and complexity of a particular case. If the procedure is performed in conjunction with a facelift or other upper face procedures such as a brow lift or eyelid lift, the total cost will increase, but the overall procedure may become more cost-effective.
As per the figures released by the ASPS for 2013, the national average cost of a neck lift in the US was $4,102. However, this cost does not cover the costs of anesthesia, surgical facility costs, and other related expenses.
Insurance and Financing
As a cosmetic procedure, the sticker price of a neck lift may not be covered by the patient’s health insurer. However, patients can explore various financing options such as personal borrowings, bank loans, credit card extended payments, and loans from professional medical care finance companies.
