With a neck lift in Mexicali, you can get rid of noticeable signs of aging while saving around 70% at one of our verified clinics.

Prices are significantly lower for a range of cosmetic surgeries in this border city—and our team has collated a list of some of the best surgeons in Mexicali who can restore the appearance of your neck in modern, welcoming facilities. 

Is a Neck Lift for Me?

The neck is one of the first areas of the body to develop tell-tale signs of aging, often earlier than your face does. You may develop wattles or a "turkey neck," or your jowls may droop, or you may get a double chin while the rest of your face remains firm.

A neck lift can help get rid of all these problem areas and give you a more elegant contour. Depending on the area to be treated, a neck lift may be medically referred to as a lower rhytidectomy, platysmaplasty or cervicoplasty; the surgery aims to take years off your age and give you smooth skin on the neck.

If only the neck is the problem, then a neck lift will help; otherwise, the procedure can be combined with a facelift, eye lift or forehead lift as a combined surgery. In case your skin has good elasticity, it is possible that only liposuction to remove excess fat will do the job; sometimes, both liposuction and surgery may help.

Why Consider a Neck Lift in Mexicali?

Since this is plastic surgery, you must usually pay for it out of your own pocket, which can come at a high price tag in your home country. However, if the appearance of the neck bothers you, a trip south of the border to Mexicali can save you thousands.

This Mexican border city is easily accessible from Canada and the US, and you won't need a visa as long as you carry your passport. Even if you take into account the airfare and staying costs, you will still save significantly with a neck lift in Mexicali.

The city is large, culturally rich and boasts many tourist attractions. You can visit historical sites, museums, parks and gardens, head to the casino, indulge in sports such as golf, river fishing, kayaking and more. You can catch a Mariachi band playing at a plaza. As for food, you are spoilt for options ranging from hawker fare, taco stands and international restaurants. 

Why Book with Medical Departures?

A neck lift procedure is major surgery, particularly when it involves the manipulation of muscles (not just restricted to the skin). Thus, you don’t want to take risks, and it pays to check that your doctor is skilled, experienced and has the necessary qualifications to carry out your surgery.

Booking through Medical Departures makes this research and booking process not only easier but also safer. That is because we carry out a detailed check into the background of the doctors, their qualifications, professional memberships, like ISAPS, experience and credentials. We also make sure the clinics and hospitals we list on our website offer excellent amenities and follow all international treatment and surgical protocols. This helps ensures your safety and guard against complications post-op.

How Long Does Neck Lift Surgery Take and What Is the Approximate Recovery Period?

Neck lift surgery can take between two and three hours and may or may not involve liposuction.

The doctor will excise the excess skin and place sutures so that they are barely visible. If muscles need to be tightened, that will also be done at this time. Your doctor may prefer to do traditional surgery that has more dramatic results or, if you need minor work, limited incisions can be used. After surgery, the skin will either be closed with normal sutures, absorbable sutures or even skin glue.

Regarding your post-surgery recovery, it should be noted that:

  • You will have light bandages and perhaps even drains if required.
  • You will be advised not to move your neck too much and also keep your head elevated and not use ice packs.
  • You will probably need painkillers and antibiotics.
  • You will have some bruising that will take four to five days to resolve and your neck will feel tight and numb initially.
  • It may take a few months for the full results to become apparent.
