"My first breast augmentation was back in 2008 with Dr. Burnett, and it’s what made me search for him 12 years later! I was absolutely pleased with the first round, I was quite excited to have my implants exchanged. The only problem was after breastfeeding two babies, I was nervous about the choices available for a breast lift. I am not fond of scars, and after the consult, I was so relieved on the plan that fit me and my body that Dr. Burnett recommended. Dr. Burnett is professional, yet warm funny personality. I was at ease through the whole process. The staff is so helpful and is very prompt at returning phone calls. The result is amazing!! Dr. Burnett delivered exactly what I wished for. I couldn’t be happier!"- M.Z. / Google / Mar 19, 2021

Who is a Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Patients considering neck lift surgery in Fresno, CA have visibly loose, hanging tissue in the neck region. Neck skin that hangs down is often caused by factors like age and significant weight loss. Regardless of the reason, this issue can make you feel self-conscious because it produces an unflattering look. A consultation is the best way to determine your candidacy for a neck lift. Patients of Dr. Burnett should be in good physical health to receive excellent results. Inform our trained team of any medications, allergies, or medical conditions that may affect your outcomes.
How Is A Neck Lift Performed?
For neck lift surgery, we use general anesthesia to ensure the patient is comfortable throughout the operation. If isolated areas of fat exist, neck liposuction would first be performed. Next, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be removed, and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is performed until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness have been attained. After a neck lift treatment, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate with each passing day. You should rest and eliminate exercise or strenuous movements and activities for several weeks to assist in the healing period. A neck lift surgery can make one of the biggest impacts on an individual's profile, taking years off their appearance.
Neck Lift FAQ
How much does a neck lift cost?
Costs for your neck lift will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Burnett. Once he has developed your surgical plan, he will be able to estimate costs for the anesthesia, facility, and miscellaneous fees. To help make your neck surgery affordable, John F. Burnett, MD, takes several payment methods, plus we can give you information on low-interest medical financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Surgery is the only way to eliminate excess skin, particularly if it hangs or droops. While there are a few nonsurgical skin tightening procedures that may produce some improvements, neck lift surgery offers the most significant and dramatic improvements to tighten, redefine, and smooth the contours of your neck. A new and popular injectable treatment called KYBELLA reduces fat in the upper neck, which causes a double chin, but it does not improve loose skin.
Will I have visible scars?
Neck lift surgery starts with one incision below the chin as well as two more near the ears. However, these are placed, so they are virtually invisible and difficult for others to see. Dr. Burnett tries very hard during your surgery to limit visible scarring. A team member will explain scar management instructions that will help your incisions to heal properly — so they are flat and thin.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
During your consultation, you can bring up that you may be considering another procedure, such as a facelift or a brow lift, in addition to a neck lift. It is common for two or more face surgeries to be combined to achieve your best results. If you are concerned about multiple aesthetic issues, talk to Dr. Burnett so he can develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Depending on your needs and goals, you may want to combine a neck lift with liposuction. A lift plus lipo can be best if you have both loose skin and stubborn fat pockets in your neck. Dr. Burnett can help you decide whether a neck lift, lipo, or a combination of both should be part of your treatment plan.
