Neck Lift: Palo Alto

A slender, graceful, youthful-looking neck is an asset to your appearance. Unfortunately, the neck is one of the first areas of the body to show the signs of aging. As the years pass, the skin loses elasticity, the neck skin and tissue begins to sag and accumulate fat deposits, and vertical bands may appear.

Neck lift surgery can dramatically rejuvenate the appearance of the neck. This procedure can produce a smoother, more youthful and slender neck and jawline. At Vistnes Plastic Surgery of Palo Alto, Dr. Vistnes performs our Bay Area neck lift surgery with artistry, skill, and outstanding patient care.

What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure designed to create a more slender, youthful-looking neck while improving the contours of the jawline. It removes excess fat deposits, tightens lose neck muscles, and removes excess sagging skin. Dr. Vistnes is a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 20 years of training and experience who performs neck lift in Palo Alto at the highest level of care.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?

It has been said that the neck is a dead giveaway of a person’s age. Unlike signs of aging in the face, creases and vertical bands on the neck and slack skin under the chin are difficult to camouflage with makeup, firming creams, or fillers. An ideal candidate for our neck lift in San Jose is a person in good general health with realistic expectations who wants to rejuvenate the appearance of the neck and jawline.

What Cosmetic Issues Can a Neck Lift Correct?

Neck lift surgery is performed to restore a smoother, more graceful, younger appearance to the neck and to improve jawline contours. This is an effective procedure for treating several cosmetic issues in the neck and jawline area, including:

  • Double chin: If fullness under the chin is caused by fat deposits in the area, liposuction may be recommended to correct the problem. If sagging under the chin results from loss of skin elasticity, our Bay Area neck lift surgery to tighten the tissues and remove excess, sagging skin can dramatically rejuvenate neck and facial appearance.
  • Turkey neck: As collagen breaks down and underlying muscles weaken with aging, it is not unusual for sagging skin (“turkey wattle”) to develop in the neck. This problem can be corrected in a neck lift procedure by tightening loose neck muscles and trimming excess skin.
  • Poorly-defined jawline: We lose volume in the cheeks with aging and jowls may begin to appear. This cosmetic problem may be corrected with neck lift surgery as a stand-alone procedure or by combining a neck lift with a lower facelift.
  • Vertical bands: As fat volume in the neck decreases with aging, vertical muscle bands may become visible. A neck lift procedure can tighten the platysmal (neck) muscles and tighten the skin to correct vertical banding in the neck.
  • Wrinkles and creases: Neck creases can result from collagen breakdown, sun exposure, and muscle weakening. A neck lift in Palo Alto can correct moderate to severe neck wrinkles and creases.
