In San Jose, CA

Neck Lift Introduction

With age, weight loss, weight gain, and the trials of life, our facial and neck area can start to sag resulting in excess skin in the form of a double chin and even flabby jowls. Dual Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Eric Li can address these concerns with a procedure known as a neck lift in San Jose and the greater Bay Area, which targets removing the excess skin resulting in a more defined jawline and restoring younger-looking contours for the facial profile.

Neck Lift First Step

What’s the first step?

The first step in getting a neck lift in San Jose and the surrounding Bay Area is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Li at CA Aesthetics in Los Gatos. During this initial appointment, he will evaluate your neck and discuss your medical history, concerns, and aesthetic goals for the procedure. He will also perform a comprehensive examination of your neck area to determine if you are a suitable candidate for a neck lift.

 Once he deems you to be a suitable candidate, he will create a surgical plan with you discussing techniques with their pros and cons. You can then take your plan to our patient coordinator who will help schedule your procedure, help with pricing options, and guide you through the necessary pre-operative preparations to ensure a smooth and successful procedure and recovery.

What to expect on the day of Neck Lift surgery

On the day of your neck lift surgery, Dr Li and his qualified team will welcome you to the surgery center, ensuring your immediate comfort in your receiving room. They will go over the discussed treatment plan in case there are any last-minute questions. Finally, an Anesthesiologist will perform the discussed anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Once you are sedated, Dr. Li will make incisions in strategic locations, typically around the ears and possibly under the chin, to access the underlying neck tissues whilst also minimizing scarring. He will then carefully reposition and tighten the muscles, remove any excess skin, and sculpt the neck contour to achieve the optimum results. He might also use liposuction if needed to remove excess fat.

After completing the surgical steps, Dr. Li will close the incisions using sutures, finalizing the procedure with dressings or compression bandages to support the area during recovery.

Neck Lift Recovery

Post-surgery, you may experience minor swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the neck area. Dr. Li will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your incisions, manage pain, and minimize swelling.

 It is recommended to rest and avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks after the procedure. You may need to wear a compression garment for several weeks to support the neck and aid in the healing process as swelling minimizes.
