What Goes Into the Cost of My Neck Lift?
Procedure costs depend greatly on the type of neck lift you seek and your overall goal for the surgery. Typical costs associated with the procedure are:
- Local vs General Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Medical tests
- Post-surgery garments and Supplies
- Recovery room
- Prescriptions for medication
- Surgeon’s fee
It is crucial to seek consultations for a better understanding of fees. However, costs might not be the best indication of a doctor’s skill.

Anesthesia & Facility Costs
Hospital and surgical facility costs typically include the operating room and a board-certified anesthesiologist if the procedure is performed under general anesthesia. The more extensive the procedure, the longer it will take to complete, which will increase these costs as they are typically on a per hour basis. The use of local anesthesia avoids the risks associated with general anesthesia as well as the costs associated with the need for an anesthesiologist.
Pre & Post-Surgical Costs
Patients may be asked to get preoperative lab testing or medical evaluation completed prior to undergoing the procedure. Prior to surgery, medications are often prescribed and follow-up visits are scheduled.
Pre and Post-procedure supplies as well as post-operative garments, such as compression garments, may often add an additional cost. Dr. Karolak provides the pre and post-procedure supplies (excluding prescriptions and lab work) as well as post-operative compression garments for his patients at no additional cost.
