Neck Lift

The neck is one of the first areas to show signs of aging and loss of elasticity. But a neck lift can help you restore a youthful and refreshed look to your neck. By tightening muscles and skin, you can achieve your ideal aesthetic and match your outer and inner selves.
As his center in Santa Barbara, Dr. Brent has helped countless patients reach their goals through an expertly-performed neck lift. He also provides his patients with a range of other cosmetic procedures to help you unlock the ideal you.






Neck Lift Overview

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that can improve multiple concerns with your neck. These include:

  • Vertical banding
  • Horizontal Creases
  • Fatty Jowls
  • The ever-dreaded “turkey-wattle”
  • Skin that feels like it has a thin papery quality to it.
With targeted muscle and tissue tightening, a neck lift delivers stunning results. Whether you want to address signs of aging or other neck concerns, a neck lift can help you achieve a more toned and fresher look.

A neck lift can help with concerns caused by:

  • Genetics
  • Weight loss
  • Age
  • And more

At his practice in Santa Barbara, Dr. Brent offers several modern forms of neck lifts. Using his experience and expertise, Dr. Brent has improved on older techniques to deliver stunning results of the highest order. Two of his preferred optimal methods include his signature “Neck-LaceĀ®” method and a Corset Platysmaplasty.

The Necklace Neck Lift

Developed by Dr. Brent himself, this modern version of the neck lift further increases the firmness of your neck under your chin. He removes some stubborn fat deposits and tightens the skin for stunning results. By removing these deposits, he can deliver a better level of tightness.
This powerful technique can permanently reduce or get rid of neck cords. Additionally, it can help elevate those soft tissues beneath the jawline. Patients report significant improvement in their neck contour, resulting in a youthful and restored appearance.

Additionally, some of this method’s key benefits include:

  • Minimized chance for post-surgical complications
  • Delivers a smoother, longer-lasting result
  • Significantly enhances the neck’s angles

Corset Platysmaplasty

Also called a Corset Plasty for short, this method tightens a key muscle under the chin. This technique benefits patients looking for a more dramatic rejuvenation of the entire neck region.

This method effectively targets:

  • Unwanted neck bands or cords
  • A double chin
  • Fatty jowls in the neck and chin area
  • Loose, sagging neck skinĀ 

Though this procedure may be more complex, it also delivers natural-looking results. When performed by an expert, you can expect long-term results and a powerful aesthetic enhancement.

It can also be combined with other techniques to deliver a personalized experience. Popular combinations with a Corset Plasty include:

  • Liposculpture: for enhanced contouring by removing stubborn pockets of fat.
  • Liposculpture Plus Face and Neck Lifting: for additional smoothing of the neck and jawline with targeted incisions. Best for patients with significant sagging.
  • Lower facelift: excellent for patients wanting to achieve a more thorough rejuvenation

Neck Lift Procedure

Each neck lift procedure will vary, as it is fully tailored to your needs. However, it is usually an outpatient procedure, so you can go home the same day. Depending on your needs, you will receive either general anesthesia or IV sedation. Overall, most procedures take about an hour. But this can vary if you are combining your neck lift with other treatments. Before your surgery, Dr. Brent will provide you with an outline of your unique procedure plan.
After your procedure, you can return home. However, you will need someone to drive you. Once home, you can get started on recovery and the path to reaching your results.

Neck Lift Recovery

Most patients take about one week off as downtime after their surgery. This allows your body to rest and heal, which brings optimal results. During the initial 7-10 day recovery period of your neck lift, we recommend minimal activity. As you continue to heal, it will be important to avoid strenuous activity until Dr. Brent confirms you are ready.
As you continue to heal over the next 1-3 months, you should see further improvements to your results. Most patients report seeing results that last for years! Dr. Brent will also provide you with information on how to ensure that you keep your results stunning for years to come.
