Neck Lift in Mexico City

The Ultimate Guide to Neck Lift in Mexico City

Last fact-checked: 6 December 2020

A neck lift in Mexico City can take years off your age by giving you smoother, more taut skin. The procedure can involve a variety of techniques tailor-made to suit your cosmetic goals.

Use Medical Departures to find background-checked surgeons in the Mexican capital who perform this procedure for thousands less than in the US.

What Is a Neck Lift?

Medically known as platysmaplasty (when muscles are involved) or cervicoplasty (when only the skin is tightened), the neck lift can be lifted as a standalone procedure or the procedure can be combined with a facelift or lifts on other areas of the face.

Different procedures are used for a neck lift alone or in combination. These can include:

  • Removing excess skin (cervicoplasty)
  • Lifting the neck muscles (platysmaplasty)
  • Liposuction to remove fat cells
  • Other neck lifting methods using lasers, ultrasound and radiofrequency devices
  • Injectable fillers to enhance certain areas

Your plastic surgeon will guide you as to which procedure is suitable for your condition. 

Why Consider a Neck Lift in Mexico City?

As cosmetic surgery procedures are not generally covered by medical insurance, many are now looking abroad to destinations such as Mexico, with the capital city easy to reach from across North America.

The rates for cosmetic procedures, such as neck lifts, are far more affordable thanks to the cost of living and lower operating expenses in the country. You don’t compromise on the quality of medical care so long as you do your research. Mexico City is home to numerous large hospitals and clinics that specialize in various plastic surgery procedures.

Mexico City is also an interesting spot for a vacation, with plenty of cultural sites, warm weather and great shopping opportunities including malls, department stores, local boutiques and flea markets. Another plus point for medical travelers is the accommodation choices, which are both plentiful and inexpensive. 

Why Book Neck Lift Surgery in Mexico City with Medical Departures?

A neck lift is major surgery and therefore does carry a degree of risk, as do all surgeries. Booking your appointment through Medical Departures gives you a much-needed safety net. That is because we carry out in-depth investigations into the background of each and every doctor and medical facility we partner with.

We check their qualifications, experience and other credentials such as professional memberships, such as ISAPS. We check the amenities at the clinics and hospitals and ensure that they are compliant in the use of the latest equipment and technology, that they follow international standards so that you are not shortchanged in any way.

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

If a neck lift consists only of liposuction, the procedure can typically take around an hour. You may not even require anesthesia for this, although you will wear a strap for a few days. For more complex neck lift surgeries, the procedure can take two or three hours. This may be carried out under local sedation and anesthesia or general if that is what you prefer.

You may need to stay overnight in hospital or may be allowed to leave once the effects of anesthesia wear off. Expect to feel tightness around the neck for a few days.

Following your surgery, it is worth noting that:

  • You may have bruising that will take 10-14 days to resolve.
  • You may have bandages and drains as required.
  • You will need to take at least two weeks off from work and complete results may show up after three to four months after neck lift surgery.
  • If you have a neck lift combined with other plastic surgery procedures, your stay in hospital and subsequent recovery period may be somewhat different.
  • You may find movement difficult and have to take care of your diet as well as jaw movement may cause pain for a few days.

What Is the Cost of Neck Lift Surgery in Mexico City?

In the US, you can expect to pay between USD 3,500 (for minor work) to USD 10,000. In Mexico City, you can pay an average of USD 2,500, equating to savings of between 50% and 75%. 

These are approximate averages. Check out the latest process at these recommended clinics in Mexico City for neck lifts:
