The purpose of neck contouring surgery, also commonly called a neck lift, is to produce a more youthful neck appearance with a tighter and more pleasing contour. Our neck lift in Denver surgery is sometimes done in conjunction with a face lift or other facial procedure, and sometimes performed on its own.

Are You a Candidate for a Neck Lift?

If you have localized deposits of fat in the anterior part of your neck (under the chin or loose skin around the neck) or if you have muscle laxity under your chin, our neck lift in Denver might be an excellent procedure for you to consider. Do you want to speak a little more directly to the concerns that patients voice e.g. “wattles” “turkey skin” etc.?

How Is a Neck Lift Performed?

The operation is usually done on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia. It requires an incision under the skin. Fat is then suctioned or excised, muscles are tightened, and a small amount of skin may be removed. Our Denver neck lift patients go home with the chin and neck wrapped in dressings or in an elastic neck sling.

What Is Recovery Like After a Neck Lift Procedure?

Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Swelling and bruising disappear in about two weeks. The final result is visible in one to three months. Depending on other procedures performed in conjunction with a neck lift, you can often return to light-duty work in one to two weeks.

PRACTICE UPDATE RE: COVID -19 SITUATION View Update Virtual Consultation



Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time.

We will also be offering virtual consultations throughout this period. We have always performed them for our out of town patients, which we have plenty, but we are now extending this service for local patients as well, in accordance with the recommended social distancing.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Dr. Slenkovich & Staff of Colorado Plastic Surgery Center
