Dr. Chan offers neck lift surgery for patients in Vancouver, Portland and surrounding areas of Washington and Oregon.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
You may be a candidate for Neck Contouring if you have excess skin, fat, or muscle banding under your chin and in the central neck area. This procedure is most commonly paired with a facelift and addresses all three tissue types (skin, fat, & muscle) that cause a blunting of the youthful angle of the neck under the chin.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
Dr. Chan will begin with incisions; the location of which will depend on your anatomy and the severity of the sagging in your neck. He can then tighten the underlying muscles and tissues as well as the skin.
When excess fat is the only thing contributing to the fullness of a neckline, liposuction neck contouring may be appropriate and can be performed in about 30 minutes. Dr. Chan will help you determine which combination of procedures is needed to give you your desired cosmetic results. The Neck Contouring procedures are intended to give you a more youthful and attractive neck contour.
What Can I Expect After a Neck Lift?
Following neck lift surgery, many patients experience bruising and swelling. To alleviate any discomfort you may feel, Dr. Chan can prescribe oral pain medication. To avoid any complications and speed up your recovery time be sure to carefully follow Dr. Chan’s post operative instructions.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
The cost for your neck lift surgery will generally not be covered under insurance since it is a cosmetic procedure. At your initial consultation with our Reviance Portland®® staff, we will be happy to discuss all of your pricing and financing options for a neck lift in Portland.
