Neck Lift Surgery Los Angeles
As we age, the neck is a telltale area that quickly shows the effects of time. Droopy skin, the appearance of “neck bands”, creases in our skin, and fatty jowls can be very bothersome and cause us to feel quite self-conscious. A neck lift reduces these signs of aging in the jawline and the neck, and restores our youthful profile.
Why people have this procedure:
Achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance by accentuating the jawline and improving the neck contour.
Improve the appearance of excess skin or “turkey neck” that can often occur as a natural part of aging.
A neck lift is often done in conjunction with a facelift, to give a harmonious and rejuvenated look to the entire area.
A technically complex procedure, attention to detail and an excellent understanding of the neck and underlying structures is key; a neck lift is designed to smooth the neck area, without it appearing pulled and tight. Commonly the deeper layers of the neck are repositioned and contoured, giving a more complete rejuvenation.
Your surgeon will perform a thorough examination of your face and neck to determine the best surgical plan to achieve your specific esthetic needs. The goal is a very natural, youthful, long-lasting result.
Incisions are placed underneath the chin, and behind the ears. They are carefully hidden from view in skin creases and in the hair.
The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and/or fat, tightening the musculature and reducing the appearance of the “neck bands” that can occur as we age.
