As you get older, your neck muscles get weaker and create extra skin folds. If your folds seem excessive, or you are unhappy with the way your neck looks, you may be a good candidate for a male neck lift, also known as platysmaplasty. With five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers neck lifts to men who live in North Florida.

What is a Male Neck Lift?

A male neck lift firms up your jawline and neck areas. If you are bothered by a double chin or hanging jowls, you can get defined features with this procedure. Neck lifts can be done as a stand-alone procedure, but are also often done at the same time as facelifts.

Benefits of Male Neck Lift

Neck lifts are a secret weapon for looking more chiseled without anyone knowing that you had plastic surgery. Neck lifts for men:

  • Give the illusion of a stronger, more defined chin
  • Make you appear slimmer
  • Enhance your appearance discretely
  • Provide long-lasting results

How is a Neck Lift Performed on a Man?

During your neck lift, layers of muscles will be made tighter and excess skin will be removed. Incisions may be made underneath your skin and/or behind your ears. As with a facelift, incisions are carefully hidden and can only be seen by trained professionals.

Neck lifts are often performed at the same time as facelifts and other facial surgery procedures so the duration of your surgery will be determined during your initial consultation.

Recovery from Male Neck Lift Surgery

Many patients are surprised and pleased to find that they do not have much pain or discomfort after their neck lift surgery. Depending upon the type of neck lift and other procedures that you undergo, you can typically resume regular activities within two to four weeks of surgery.

Similarities and Differences Between a Male Neck Lift and a Neck Lift for a Woman

There are many similarities and differences between male and female neck lifts. The purpose of these two types of neck lifts is to restore the face to its former look by reducing the signs of aging. By improving the facial components, the face will appear much younger and more attractive. Unlike a neck lift for a woman, male neck lifts are more focused on softening the lift to create a timeless quality to the face. The ultimate goal is to produce results that do not feminize the face. In addition, most surgeons try to avoid producing a “done” look.

How Much Does Male Neck Lift Surgery Cost in Jacksonville?

The cost for a male neck lift ranges due to the discrepancy in types of surgery and techniques used.  After your consultation, Dr. Garcia’s staff will review all costs in detail based on the recommendations made specifically for you. Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery accepts cash, major credit cards, and personal checks, as well as financing via CareCredit®.

Health insurance does not typically cover the cost of neck lifts. Be sure to check with your insurance company about your benefits so you will know what to expect.
