Neck Lift in Melbourne, FL
The neck area is prone to developing signs of aging, such as banding, wrinkles and sagging skin. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers neck lifts and other types of facial surgery for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift improves your jawline and neck to help you look younger and feel more confident about wearing clothing that exposes your neck. Men and women develop problems in the neck area based on heredity, as well as sun exposure, stress, and other factors. Unfortunately, no products or exercises can improve the appearance of your neck.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
Neck lift surgery helps with:
- Loose skin on the neck
- Pockets of fat that give the neck a bumpy appearance
- Lax skin on the jawline
- Fat under the chin that causes a double or triple chin
- Abnormal contours that are caused by banding of the neck muscles
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Dr. Castellon may recommend a neck lift if you do not have moderate to severe signs of aging in the upper and middle face areas. Many times he recommends a neck lift in conjunction with a mini facelift.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having a Neck Lift?
Schedule a consultation at Castellon Plastic Surgery Center to learn about neck lifts and how the procedure will help you. The appointment will also give you the opportunity to meet Dr. Castellon and experience firsthand his incredible bedside manner, understanding and professional guidance.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Neck Lift?
Your neck lift will be performed at a fully-staffed surgery center to ensure that you receive the best care possible before, during and after your procedure. You will need to have a friend or family member drive you to the appointment and home after you are released. Dr. Castellon will speak with you before the surgery to answer any questions, and he will check on you before you are released. We will provide at-home instructions before you leave.
How Long Does It Take to Perform a Neck Lift?
The length of your surgery depends on your personal anatomy as well as the type of correction that is needed. Most neck lift surgeries take two to three hours.
What Should I Expect After My Neck Lift?
Your neck will be bandaged, so you will not be able to see the results right away. Once the bandages are removed, you will see a dramatic improvement in your neck area. We will explain how to recover at home, and you should follow the instructions very carefully. Dr. Castellon will require you to limit your activities for a period of time.
When Will I See Full Results of My Neck Lift?
Full results from your neck lift can take up to three months. Resting and being patient with your body can help shorten the recovery time.
How Long Will the Results of a Neck Lift Last?
Although the aging process cannot be stopped by surgery, the results of your neck lift will last for many years.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost in Melbourne?
Medical insurance does not cover neck lift surgery. We are better able to provide a cost after your consultation. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center accepts payment by cash and check as well as credit card, including MasterCard® and Visa®. If you are interested in financing the cost of your neck lift, we encourage you to apply with CareCredit® and LendingUSA.com.
