Deep Structural Neck Lift

Deep Structural Neck Lift in Austin, TX

A deep structural neck lift is a solution designed for people who are genetically predisposed to have a heavy-looking neck. This issue doesn’t only happen due to age. Thanks to heredity, patients as young as 18 can benefit from the fat removal, trimming, and tightening performed in this procedure.

This level of expertise is only available from an extensively trained, Double Board-Certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Yula Indeyeva.

What Can a Deep Structural Neck Lift Do for You?

A deep structural neck lift is a debulking procedure that only requires one incision concealed in the natural crease under the chin. This single incision gives Dr. Indeyeva enough access to enhance and optimize your neck contours by trimming and reshaping deep muscle layers, glands, and fat. Once she has accomplished these steps, she will redrape the skin and carefully close the incision with tiny sutures.

In general, this procedure is ideal for patients aged 18 to 40 who are generally satisfied with their cheek and jawline contours, but dislike the fullness and heavy appearance of their neck. Patients with excellent skin elasticity are better-qualified than those with loose, crepey skin.

The best candidates share these qualities:

  • Non-smokers—nicotine in any form dramatically reduces the chances of proper healing
  • In good overall health
  • Have realistic expectations about plastic surgery
  • Have a BMI of 32 or less

Please arrive at your consultation prepared to discuss your complete health history, including any bleeding disorders or medications you take that could increase your risk of complications during surgery or recovery.

“I strongly believe in the mind-body connection, and I’m convinced that when people feel their best and most confident, they radiate their purest, highest, most positive energy into the world. Through my skill set, I will empower people to feel their best and achieve their highest potential.”​ -Dr. Yula Indeyeva

What to Expect from Deep Structural Neck Lift Recovery

When Dr. Indeyeva finishes performing your deep structural neck lift, you will have mild bruising and swelling, with a drain placed to remove excess tissue fluid. Most patients feel initial tightness, numbness, and discomfort for several weeks after surgery.

A deep structural neck lift is an outpatient procedure. We will send you home with detailed post-procedural instructions containing information on how to care for your incision, when you can shower, and when to return for your follow-up appointments.

Most patients feel well enough to return to their usual activities, including work and socializing, within two to three weeks. Please refrain from strenuous exercise, heavy lifting, and craning your neck until Dr. Indeyeva approves you to.

Austin, TX, Deep Structural Neck Lift FAQs

Yes, a deep structural neck lift will optimize the appearance of your chin and jawline.  However, for best result, Dr. Indeyeva may also recommend a chin implant to further enhance your results.

In most cases, a deep structural neck lift is the best option to address a double chin.  In a very small percentage of cases, liposuction alone may be sufficient.  Specific recommendations will be made on a case-by-case basis.

The outcome of a deep neck lift is typically long-lasting. You can prolong your results by choosing healthy foods, drinking plenty of water, shielding your skin from UV damage, and using the medical-grade skin care products recommended by Dr. Indeyeva.

You may also be a candidate for additional facial slimming procedures such as buccal fat reduction depending on your anatomy and desired goals.

As you continue aging, you may wish to pursue additional rejuvenation procedures like an eyelid lift, brow lift, or  deep plane facelift. Meanwhile, the area under your chin should always look better than if you had never gotten surgery.

Because this procedure does not involve incisions around the ears, it cannot address sagging and laxity along the jawline. If jowls are a concern for you, you will greatly benefit from a deep-plane facelift.
