As of 2013, the average cost of a neck lift was $4,012, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This fee does not include anesthesia fees, the costs of the operating room and surgical supplies, pre-surgery testing fees, or the surgeon's fee for performing the procedure.
During a neck lift, a surgeon tightens and improves the suspension of the neck muscles, reports Johns Hopkins Medicine. The procedure helps create a well-defined jaw line and prevents sagging of the skin under the jaw line. The results of a neck lift often depend on the bone structure, skin elasticity, medical history and healing rate of the patient.
