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. Mark A. Petroff and Dr. Brian Scott offer neck lifts to their Lake Oswego, OR patients. Under their 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 or Dr. Scott so they can personally discuss each option with everyone.
While the lower face can be treated alone with a neck lift, Dr. Petroff and Dr. Scott often incorporate 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.
The best candidates for neck lift surgery:
- Have loose skin in the area caused by weight loss, aging, or genetics
- Have lines and wrinkles in the neck area
- Are any age from 20 – 70+
- Desire a sleeker and slimmer profile
- Desire a long-term solution
- Desire a natural look
Neck Lift Reviews
"Thank you so much Dr. Petroff. From the moment I walked into the Petroff Center I was so very completely taken care of by experienced, friendly, and competent staff. I found Dr. Petroff to be a very talented and brilliant plastic surgeon. The facelift I received made my kids say “Mom! You look 30 years younger!” (slight exaggeration). I received the best care and from the best doctor ever! Dr. Mark Petroff is a perfectionist. I look amazing and feel wonderful after only two weeks post surgery! The face and neck lift look very natural. Examples: Turkey neck – gone, I can feel my trachea; pixie ear gone, he gave me ear lobes; my high cheek bones are back along with my happy smile. After interviewing a number of surgeons Dr. Petroff was the only facial plastic surgeon would make an incision hidden inside the hairline. I was out in the public within four days when I was able to have dinner at a restaurant with my son. He listened to my concerns and preformed a scar revision from work left by another doctor years ago. I am so grateful to another plastic surgeon who recommended Dr. Petroff. He told me that Dr. Petroff is the best at facial surgery and would send his mother to him for a facelift. I took his advice and I am so thankful I did. Oh, and by the way, it was not that painful at all, just a bit uncomfortable. Go for it!"- A.M. / Google / Jun 05, 2021
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. Your surgeon 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.
