Of all the facial cosmetic procedures, Baton Rouge plastic surgeon, Dr. Erick Sanchez, considers the combination of liposuction and contouring surgery of the neck a dramatic aesthetic enhancement for many patients. A neck lift reverses the natural aging process by eliminating sagging neck skin and fatty deposits. This procedure is not only common for aging patients, but also weight loss patients as it removes and tightens loose neck skin. Neck lift surgery produces a sharper, tauter profile that makes the patient look years younger and slimmer.
Good candidates are men or women who demonstrate:
- Localized fat deposits under the chin
- Looseness of neck muscle and/or neck skin
- Non-smokers or those who have ceased smoking two months prior to the procedure
- Overall good health
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, we will evaluate the patient’s underlying bone anatomy and make a determination as to whether the chin position and its influence on the appearance of the neck is an issue. This evaluation will help piece together an individual treatment plan. During surgery, an incision is typically made under the chin. If there are fat pockets present, the excess fat will be removed with liposuction. Then, any loose skin is excised and trimmed away. The final step is when the underlying tissue and muscles are pulled tight and the remaining skin re-draped and secured with sutures to produce a more youthful neck appearance.
Neck Lift Recovery
Swelling and bruising will be present after necklift surgery. A compressive neck dressing is used to help control swelling and to help the neck skin adapt to the new neck contour. Most patients can resume modest activity in 2 weeks. A complete recovery from necklift surgery occurs in about 3-4 weeks. This surgery creates a tighter neck that appears softer and younger.
The cost for necklift surgery will vary by patient and by each specific surgical case. The average price for this procedure generally costs between $5,500 to $7,000.
Create a Tighter Neck
Necklift surgery can result in a gorgeous profile and a younger looking neck for both men and women. It creates especially nice outcomes for weight loss patients where a significant amount of loose skin resides after the weight loss.

I researched abdominoplasty for months before I had a consultation with Dr Sanchez and his team. They were so available and patient with me through all of my questions even before I finally secured my surgery date. My husband attended my post op appointment with me and I was so impressed with how attentive Dr Sanchez was while he educated him on what was about to happen. I knew I would be pleased but my results exceeded my expectations and I’m so extremely happy! Thank you Dr Sanchez and team! You have forever changed my life and I’m so grateful! #snatchedbysanchez

with Dr. Sanchez and I really recommend him and his practice! Dr. Sanchez is extremely honest, helpful, accommodating, and skilled. He is upfront about expectations as well as understanding of a patient’s wants. His bedside manner is collected, patient, and overall just wonderful . . . even when you’re acting a fool like I was lol He also has the most amazing supporting staff. All the girls who helped me during consultation, pre-op, during the operation, and of course when I go for post-op have been nothing short of amazing - you can’t fake the genuine care they have for patients! I really love this plastic surgery clinic and I definitely recommend!!
Dr. Sanchez performed tummy tuck with 360 lipo I am currently 11weeks post op and I cannot thank him enough for the awesome job he done and with the great bedside manner.... prior to choosing Sanchez I consulted with several local physicians and also surgeons in Miami and Dominican Republic. Decided on Sanchez due to his warm and welcoming and patient manner during my initial consultation. My surgery was on a Friday Dr. Sanchez gave my husband his personal cell phone number to contact him if I had any issues over the weekend that itself made me know that i had chosen the right doctor for my procedure..., I have absolutely no complaints about Dr. Sanchez or his entire staff and my results are amazing.
