NECK LIFT IN MANHATTAN, NYC
Have you undergone facial surgery but still find that your neck makes you look older? A neck lift by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can help carry on the appearance of a more youthful-looking body by removing excess skin and tightening and toning the area.
WHAT IS A NECK LIFT?
A neck lift, as the name suggests, tightens the skin on the neck in order to eliminate unwanted wrinkles, excess fat, age lines, and sagging skin. Once the procedure is done, the patient can look significantly younger.
To accomplish this, a series of small incisions are made. Dr. Swift carefully plans the procedure with input from the client so that the desirable results can be achieved with minimal scar tissue.
It’s important to note that a neck lift will not eliminate wrinkles or sagging skin on the face, including around the eyes, forehead, and mouth.
BENEFITS OF A NECK LIFT
It’s a mistake to think that neck lifts are just for women, the procedure is actually quite effective for both men and women. Once the procedure is complete, patients can:

NECK LIFT RECOVERY
We want to help your recovery be as comfortable and fast as possible. Most patients find the recovery period for a neck lift takes about 2-4 weeks. That being said, many of our patients return to work, depending on the strain of the job, in 14 days.
During your recovery period, please take care to sleep with your head elevated; otherwise, you could experience strain. Additionally, please remember that your skin will adjust and loosen a little bit, to allow for natural creases to form again. This process takes time and is completely normal.
IS A NECK LIFT RIGHT FOR ME?
Good candidates for a neck lift are generally between 30 to 80 years old, have lost a significant amount of weight, have wrinkles or unsightly muscles on their neck, or want their neck to look more appropriately proportionate to their face.
HOW MUCH DOES A NECK LIFT COST?
Costs for your neck lift will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Alphaeon Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
