Neck lift surgery, often performed in conjunction with face lift procedures, can smooth out the skin of the neck for a firmer, more youthful appearance. It is common for loose bands of skin and excess fat to accumulate in the neck, which can lead to self-consciousness about one’s appearance.
Our board-certified Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Orringer, can significantly improve the appearance of the neck with advanced neck lift surgery. If you're interested in learning more about neck lift surgery, please contact our Beverly Hills office.
Your Neck Lift Consultation
During your initial consultation, Dr. Orringer will examine you and discuss all of your concerns with you in detail. He will then help you determine whether neck lift surgery is the best option for your goals. Should neck lift surgery be determined as the best course of action, Dr. Orringer will begin planning for the procedure and developing an individualized treatment process in accordance with your unique needs.
Although neck lift surgery is often performed in tandem with a face lift, this procedure can be performed on its own as well. During surgery, Dr. Orringer will eliminate any excess skin in the neck area and tighten the remainder. Neck muscles will also be pulled taut to give the area a smoother and firmer appearance.
The procedure can be performed at our accredited, state-of-the-art surgery center.
There will be some bruising and swelling after neck lift surgery; however, this should resolve in the weeks following the procedure. Pain medication can be prescribed to control any discomfort. Please arrange for someone to drive you home following the procedure, and please do not drive until oral narcotics are no longer necessary to control post-operative pain. Dr. Orringer will advise you to limit any strenuous activity or mobility in the neck area for a short period after surgery. Any scarring from the procedure should be virtually invisible to others, as the incisions are typically made in very discreet places.
Deciding on Neck Lift Surgery
As with any surgical procedure, neck lift surgery has advantages, risks, and limitations. Dr. Orringer will explain all risks and benefits of this procedure to you during your initial consultation, and he will be happy to answer any question you may have at any time during your consideration of neck lift surgery through to the actual treatment and recovery process. Dr. Orringer wants to make sure you have all of the information you need to make the best decision possible, and is committed to giving you sufficient time to ask questions and address all concerns.
