Where can I undergo a natural neck lift in Atlanta?
Dr. Mike Majmundar, double Board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs arguably the best neck lift Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and the surrounding communities of Georgia have to offer its patients. For a slimmer and more youthful look, many people choose to have natural neck lifts. As one of the most common and less invasive plastic surgery procedures, natural neck lifts can tighten the loose skin around your neck, get rid of a double chin, or ‘turkey neck’, and give you an overall polished presence.
What is a natural neck lift?
A natural neck lift is a combination of procedures to enhance the appearance of a person’s neck. Depending on the person and the type of neck, it may include the removal of skin, liposuction for fat removal, tightening of neck muscles, or all three.
Who is a good candidate for a natural neck lift?
Good candidates are individuals with excess fat, such as a ‘double chin’, or excess skin, such as a ‘turkey neck’, around their chin and neck. Thin patients will show banding in the neck with extra skin; these are vertical bands that extend from the middle of the chin to the bottom of the neck, and can be addressed with the same procedure described above.
What can I expect post-operatively?
After the surgery, patients will have a head dressing that will be removed the next morning. A chin strap will be given to the patient at this time to wear for the next two weeks to help maintain the beautiful neckline created for you. Recovery is on average from 7 to 10 days and is associated with temporary swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort.
What is the cost of a natural neck lift?
The typical natural neck lift cost varies from $4,000 to $7,000 in Atlanta. The cost of the natural neck lift depends on several factors: geography, local cost of living, facility and anesthesia fees, and most importantly, the experience and credentials of your plastic surgeon.
In addition, plastic surgeons who possess their own accredited outpatient surgery center with a board certified anesthesiologist on staff, like our practice, can control the facility fees, lowering the overall cost to much less than any hospital.
What are the benefits of a natural neck lift?
Our natural neck lift in Alpharetta improves the neckline by reducing heaviness, extra skin, and tightening the neck muscles, if needed. Many individuals, usually because of weight loss or genetics, will only need their neck addressed. However, some will need a natural mini-facelift, in addition to a natural neck lift, to improve any heaviness in the cheeks and jawline along with the neck. Everyone wants to have a natural and balanced look; to that end, if you have a beautiful neckline with sagging cheeks, this will look disproportionate and unbalanced. Having an open discussion with your plastic surgeon to decide which procedure, or combination of procedures, would make you the happiest is the best way to determine whether a natural neck lift is right for you.

How will you address my special concerns?
We consult with hundreds of men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and the surrounding communities in Georgia every month regarding their facial appearance, and the most common concern or fear is ‘looking pulled’ or ‘weird’.
At Northside Plastic Surgery, we specialize in surgical and nonsurgical procedures that achieve youthful and natural results. Our signature procedures, such as our natural facelift, natural brow lift, or no scar rhinoplasty, are designed to result in a balanced, healthy, and natural contour.
How does our natural neck lift differ from other neck lifts?
Unlike traditional necklifts that rely on pulling the skin to obtain the lift, in our natural necklift, tissues and muscles underneath the skin are tightened instead followed by a gentle re-draping of the neck skin over the tightened tissues. Excess skin is still removed, but because we don’t rely on pulling the skin to get the lift, we can avoid a pulled or overdone appearance every time. Because the skin isn’t pulled tightly, there is less tension on the incision when sutured back together. The incisions are behind the ear except in the extended natural necklift where the incision extends into the crease in front of the ear lobe.
When skin is pulled too tightly, it can not only give a person a pulled look but it also causes the scars to widen and become unsightly.
This is a problem for women who pull their hair back, wear their hair short, or for men who have short hair. By avoiding this stress on the skin with the natural necklift or extended natural necklift, the incisions heal almost invisibly allowing the person to wear their hair any way they want.
Is a natural neck lift painful?
Less than 5% of patients undergoing the natural necklift or extended natural necklift complain about pain. Every person has a different pain tolerance and, as such, pain medicine is provided to every patient; however, 95% of patients undergoing this procedure use nothing more than Tylenol.
What is the cost of a natural neck lift?
The cost of your neck lift will vary, based on the complexity of the procedure and on whether you undergo any additional facial contouring procedures such as a face lift or brow lift in tandem. Our office will work with you to find the best financing options available.
