Neck Lift

Bristol Neck Lift Surgeon – Dr. John Bandeian
Serving Patients in Kingsport, Elizabethton, Johnson City, Tri-Cities, TN-VA and Bristol, TN


A neck lift tightens the skin of the neck. A neck lift is appropriate for patients whose main problem is loose skin on the neck, not on the face. A neck lift tightens the skin on the anterior neck, and just as important, it usually improves the appearance of a “weak chin” and it usually makes the patient’s jaw line more attractive. Patients who are interested in a neck lift may call Dr. Bandeian’s Bristol / Kingsport plastic surgery office for a consultation. The cost of the consultation is applied to the surgical fee. Dr. Bandeian performs neck lifts at Bristol Plastic Surgery Center with local anesthesia. Dr. Bandeian gives his Kingsport, Bristol, Johnson City, Tri-Cities, TN-VA and Elizabethton neck lift patients 3 prescriptions: one for antiseptic soap to use before surgery, one for prophylactic antibiotics and one for pain medication. Dr. Bandeian gives his patients a choice of different pain medication, because he wants his patients to be as comfortable as possible after the surgery.

The neck lift is done at Bristol Plastic Surgery Center with local anesthesia and sedation by vein, and takes about 2 hours to perform. A small incision under the chin is made that is usually very inconspicuous. The operation usually involves excising some neck skin, liposuction on the neck and jaw line, and some muscle work. After the surgery, a chinstrap is applied. Patients should have a responsible adult drive them home from the surgery center and stay with them on the night of their surgery.

There is minimal pain from the surgery. Dr. Bandeian, an experienced Bristol, TN neck lift surgeon instructs his patients to call him personally on the evening of their surgery to let him know how they are doing. Dr. Bandeian checks his patients on the first post-operative day. Sutures are removed about 5–7 days after the surgery. Bruising may last from 1 to 2 weeks. Patients should wear the chinstrap for about 3 weeks after the surgery. Patients may return to work the day after the surgery or stay out longer if they do not want to wear the chinstrap at work.

In addition to performing neck lift surgery in Bristol, TN, Dr. Bandeian also performs surgery for Kingsport face lift, Botox, blepharoplasty and Juvederm patients seeking to rejuvenate their appearance.
