Neck Lift in Los Angeles
Overview of Neck Lift in the Los Angeles Area
Redefine your jaw by getting rid of excess fat and skin with a neck lift in Beverly Hills. Wrinkling on the chin and neck can greatly affect your youthful look even if your upper face is smooth and aesthetically pleasing. Aging easily manifests into wrinkles and sagging when the skin loses its elasticity. With neck lift surgery, you can complement your appearance by removing your turkey wattle or double chin.
What Is Neck Lift?
A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure performed to reduce the excess skin and fat on the neck and jawline. Heredity, sun damage, and aging can contribute to the loss of skin elasticity. Muscle banding in the neck can cause unsightly contours. A neck lift is performed to improve the appearance of the lower face to match the rest of your facial features. It can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures to achieve your desired cosmetic goals.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
You are an ideal candidate for neck lift surgery if you are in good overall health. Since this is a surgical operation, it is important to have no underlying conditions that could hinder your ability to heal properly. You may be recommended for lower rhytidectomy if you have jowls, sagging skin, or pockets of fat on your jawline and neck.
In order to ascertain your compatibility with a neck lift procedure, a consultation is necessary. Your medical history will be reviewed, including past surgeries, current medications, and existing health conditions. A physical examination of your neck and jaw will be done to assess if a neck lift is best for you. Discuss your motivations and expected outcomes with Dr. Davis Nguyen and a tailor-fit treatment plan will be developed for you.
The Neck Lift Procedure
If you are undergoing a full neck lift procedure, you will be put to sleep under general anesthesia. Local anesthesia may be administered if your treatment only involves liposuction. For full neck lift surgery, small incisions are created behind the ear and under the chin to access the platysma muscle. This muscle will be adjusted and excess skin will be removed for a taut appearance.
If you only need liposuction, tiny incisions will be made to accommodate the tiny cannula used for suctioning the excess fat. Depending on the complexity of your procedure, the whole process can take two to three hours.

Neck Lift Recovery and Healing
After your neck lift surgery, you may need a couple of days or weeks for recovery and healing. Your treated areas will be wrapped in compression bandages that you are required to wear for about a week. Expect some swelling, bruising, and pain which can be alleviated with prescription medications.
Keep your neck straight and prevent bending or twisting. You may go back to work after two weeks. In four to six weeks, you can go back to your normal routine.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
The cost of neck lift surgery depends on the patient’s goals and expected outcome. The course of treatment is highly personalized to cater to each patient’s specific needs. Thus, the overall price will include the anesthetic and procedural fees, along with the combination treatments received.

What are Dr. Nguyen’s Patients Saying?
We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one, and the result should appear natural and balanced.
There are several core philosophical principles that drive our practice. We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one. We feel that results should appear natural and balanced so that a patient looks like the best version of his or herself, not a bizarre approximation of someone else. We believe that the best outcomes are achieved when a patient and surgeon share a common objective and when there is consensus regarding aesthetic taste. We encourage a holistic approach to anti-aging because true youthfulness requires a combination of attitude, physical well being, as well as appearance.
While facial plastic surgery is often pursued to restore a youthful appearance, its results are most effective when a patient is vigilant about preserving mind, body, and spirit alike. Last, and perhaps most importantly, we believe that each of our patient’s needs is unique and that their course of treatment should reflect that of uniqueness. We strive to give the utmost in personalized care and service. From your first phone call to our office through your final follow-up visit, you will be given the time and attention needed to help you realize your individual aesthetic goals.
