About Neck Lifts
The loose or wrinkled skin around the neck and chin can drastically age a person and detract from their cosmetic appearance. That's why Dr. Petroff offers neck lifts to his Lake Oswego, OR patients. Under his skilled hands, patients can achieve the slim, sleek profile they have been looking for in a single procedure that trims away and repositions the excess skin. At Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa, we also offer other enhancing procedures that are commonly combined with a neck lift to deliver optimal results, such as liposuction and facelifts. We encourage our patients to schedule a consultation with Dr. Petroff so he can personally discuss each option with everyone.
While the lower face can be treated alone with a neck lift, Dr. Petroff often incorporates a neck lift procedure with a facelift. By addressing all aspects of the face, including the mid-to-lower section, as well as the neck, patients receive an overall facial enhancement that can take years off of one's appearance. During the private consultation, facelift surgery will be also be discussed as an option, depending on the patient's aesthetic needs.

- Have lines and wrinkles in the neck area
- Are any age from 20 – 70+
- Desire a sleeker and slimmer profile

"I can't say enough good things about Dr. Petroff or his staff! I got a rhinoplasty done at the Petroff Center 6 months ago and I'm absolutely obsessed with how my nose turned out. The entire process was so much easier than I thought it was going to be and I know that's because of the expertise of Dr. Petroff! I barely bruised, had minimal swelling and healed extremely fast. He somehow managed to give me everything I wanted out of my surgery and more. He has the absolute perfect eye for rhinoplasty, I constantly get compliments about how natural my nose looks now, and how it looks like the nose I should've had! Not only that his staff is amazing, warm, welcoming and extremely helpful! I can't even begin to describe how absolutely beautiful and happy I feel because of this surgery and I'm so so glad I chose The Petroff Center. If you're wanting a rhinoplasty; especially in Oregon there's just no one better than Dr. Petroff!!"- S.R. / Yelp / Dec 18, 2017
"I've had multiple treatments of lip injections from Dr. Petroff and I can honestly say he is the only doctor I will trust in the Portland area. He listened to my request and concerns on how I liked the shape of my lips. He is very knowledgeable on what types of injectables I would benefit from and what injections may not work the best for me. The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this facility."- T.R. / Yelp / Dec 09, 2017

Picking the right plastic surgeon, in my opinion is the most important part of plastic surgery. The staff are wonderful and always there for you. They called me regularly to check on me! I am grateful....and look amazing!"- A.M. / Solutionreach / Nov 14, 2017

What to Expect
Neck lift surgery is outpatient and performed at an accredited surgical facility. The patient will be under general anesthesia during the procedure. Our plastic surgeon will start off by making an incision under the chin or in front/behind the patient’s ears. When there’s abundant fat in the region, liposuction will be the first step of the surgery to remove this excess fat. The underlying neck muscles will then be pulled tight. Then skin will be trimmed and the remaining skin will be re-draped for a tighter, smoother appearance. Stitches or sutures are placed deep in the neck wall. Dr. Petroff may also place a drain in the surgical site to control bleeding. The entire surgery typically lasts 2 hours.
Following a neck lift surgery, a patient commonly experiences some amount of bruising and swelling in the neck area. It’s also common for patients to have a sensation of tightness and pulling, which is a result of the neck adjusting into the new position. Typically patients are able to return to their normal routine, such as work, in around 7 – 10 days. After a few months, a patient should be able to see the full effects of the surgery with a tighter, smoother, more contoured neck. There will be very minimal scarring since the incisions are placed in discreet places.
