Overview of Neck Lift FAQ in the Los Angeles Area

Getting a neck lift can be a daunting prospect for a lot of patients if they don’t have all of the information they need. This is why it’s important for them to ask the right questions and get the right answers before going ahead with the procedure. Here, we’ve assembled some common neck lift FAQs for Orange County patients.

What Does a Neck Lift Involve?
A neck lift contours the tissues of the neck to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The procedure involves the tightening of the skin around the neck and the chin, the tightening of the sagging platysma muscles, and the removal of excess fat and skin. Anesthesia will be administered, incisions will be made, and these incisions will be closed and dressed when the surgery is complete.
How Long Is the Neck Lift Recovery Period?
It typically takes several weeks for patients to recover from a neck lift. There will be some bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort during the first few days. However, they will gradually recede in time, especially as patients follow the instructions provided after the procedure. Time off from work will be required, and it will be necessary to avoid physically taxing activities.
When Should I Get a Neck Lift?
The optimal age for most patients to get a neck lift would be between the ages of 35 and 65. This would be the period in which the natural aging process has reduced the strength of their neck tissues. However, certain health conditions and lifestyle choices could result in premature aging signs on the neck, making it necessary to get a neck lift at a younger age.
Do Neck Lifts Get Rid of Wrinkles?
This is one of the benefits of a neck lift. Since the surgery involves the removal of excess skin and the tightening of the remaining skin, this will result in elimination of neck wrinkles.
How Long Will the Results Last?

The results of a neck lift will depend on several factors, but patients should look anywhere between five to seven years younger for many years. The longevity of the results can be extended with a healthy lifestyle and plenty of exercise. Using the right cosmetic products can also be helpful in keeping the patient’s neck moisturized and less prone to becoming loose and wrinkled.

How Many Times Can I Get a Neck Lift?
The number of times that patients can get a neck lift will depend on a few factors, the most important of which is their age. However, jowls and loose skin can typically reappear after five years, at which point patients can get a neck lift again.

As an Anesthesiologist who works closely with Dr. Nguyen, I can tell you that he is an excellent surgeon and collogue. He cares greatly for his patients both inside the operating room and out. He works meticulously and never rushes any procedure. Patient well-being and desired outcome are his top priorities. I can only give my highest recommendation as he is definitely one of the best.

Dr. Nguyen is truly an artist! I see him for injectables (as well as my husband) and get botox and fillers. It looks so natural that when I tell my close friends they're shocked and don't even believe I had anything done. He's very kind, patient and has such a beautiful fancy office and friendly staff. It truly is such a pleasure going to see him and always leave his chair feeling more youthful and confident. Highly recommend him for any surgical or non-surgical procedures!!
Arguably the best facial surgeon in Beverly Hills...amongst an abundance of premier plastic surgeons!

I was considering some top Beverly Hills plastic surgeons--and while they were all skilled, I wasn't confident until I met Dr. Nguyen. When I saw how artistic, meticulous and caring he is--he was my only choice. He is the perfect combination of brilliant surgeon, compassionate doctor and artist. Every single detail in his practice is like being in a 5 star hotel. Most importantly, every person who works with him is gracious, warm, and 5 steps ahead of anything you need. Dr. Natalie, Gaby, Van and Jessica are so lovely, gentle, positive and reassuring --they may be actual angels. As for the results, I look 10-20 years younger (depending on the day) and very natural. I am super open about telling my friends and clients what I've done, when they remark on how much better I look. Whenever I find someone or something amazing--it should be shared!! When people find out what I did, and how natural it looks---ALL of them want Dr. Nguyen's number. This is a complete rave review, and if you become one of Dr. Nguyen's lucky clients--you will be writing one too. I recommend Dr. Nguyen and everyone who works for him with unlimited gratitude and enthusiasm.

Our Philosophy

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.
