Neck Lift in Costa Rica

The Ultimate Guide to Neck Lift in Costa Rica

A crepey neck ages you. A Neck lift in Costa Rica gives you a smooth and firm neck and makes you look much younger, especially if your face does not have other visible signs of aging. You can have a holiday in Costa Rica and get this cosmetic surgery procedure done at an affordable rate.

While you can get esthetic procedures done on your face that may be minimally or non-invasive, lines and wrinkles, fat deposits, excess skin on the jowls, a double chin may not be fully addressed by these. A neck lift will make a dramatic difference. Medically called lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift can be performed as a standalone procedure or can be combined with other plastic surgeries like facelift, brow lift, eye bag removal, rhinoplasty or others.

Or you can combine it with facial contouring via liposuction, cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers and botox and others that will combat the signs of aging and make you look younger.

Why consider neck lift in Costa Rica?

As plastic surgery is not covered by insurance, it can be quite expensive. In Costa Rica all kinds of medical procedures are reasonably priced. Additionally, it has developed into a popular medical tourism hub thanks to the thousands of medical tourists who go there particularly from the U.S. and Canada.

Travel and hotels costs are also reasonable and as a resident of either of these countries and even others you will get a visa free entry into Costa Rica. It is serviced by two international airports, the Juan Santamaria International Airport that is close to San Jose and the Daniel Obuder International Airport at Liberia.

This beautiful Central American country attracts tourists who are interested in adventure and eco-tourism. It has cloud forests, parks, natural resorts, volcanoes and all kinds of water-based activities like diving, snorkeling, rafting, sport fishing, going on tours and trips to see whales and dolphins and more. It has many rivers and is close to both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. With numerous volcanoes, some dormant and some active, you get to see these in a natural setting and check out the views as well. Irazu, Poas, Arenal, Tenorio, Miravalles, Orosi and Turrialba are only some of the volcanoes that you can see in different places.

It is also home to many endangered and unique species of wildlife and has a proportionately huge biodiversity in terms of plant life, animals, mammals, birds and insects. It also has a number of UNESCO world heritage sites including parks and mysterious stone spheres of Costa Rica that are pre-Colombian in origin and found all over the country.

You can find lots to see and do in Costa Rica and also get your neck lift done.

How long does neck lift take and what is the approximate recovery period?

You can have either a traditional neck lift or a limited incision one, depending on the condition of your neck and skin. Sometimes fat has to be removed, tissue re-positioned and muscles cut. The extra skin is also cut. An open neck lift will give better results, whereas the one with limited incisions will help you only if you don’t need too much work. The surgery is usually done under general anesthesia. The time taken will range from one to three hours. You may have to stay overnight in hospital for monitoring.

After the surgery and the sutures, your neck will feel tight and probably numb. You may have drains along with bandages. You will have to keep your head elevated and you will be advised not to use icepacks. You can expect a recovery period of around two weeks, but it can take several months for the swelling to subside and the final results to be apparent
