If you’re bothered by a sagging or crepey neck, a Neck Lift in Los Angeles can help you restore this area. This surgical procedure is the most powerful option to tighten the neck and get rid of what is commonly called “turkey neck” or neck fat. Removing excess fat and skin under the neck can leave you with a more sculpted appearance by adding definition to the chin and neck area. Contact our office today for your consultation, and redefine your neck!
No More Turkey Neck
Platysmaplasty, more commonly known as Neck Lift surgery, is an outpatient procedure to redefine and contour the neck. This procedure can help smooth and improve the look of the neck and lower face, refreshing your appearance and boosting self-confidence. If you have lax skin, wrinkles, or fat deposits, sometimes called a “waddle” or “turkey neck,” a surgical neck lift is an excellent way to reclaim your youthful contours. Less invasive than a facelift, a neck lift can reduce the signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance to the neck and lower face area.
A More Youthful Appearance
While there are non-surgical options for reducing lax skin and fat deposits in the neck, platysmaplasty is the longest-lasting and most effective way to sculpt your neck. Results will last many years, including a dramatically smoother neck area, a more defined chin area, a streamlined profile, and an overall more youthful appearance. So if you’re looking for a long-lasting fix for sagging skin and neck fat, our Los Angeles Neck Lift procedure is a great option.
Determine Your Aesthetic Goals
A Neck Lift can mitigate a number of issues in your lower face and neck area. For example, as we age, our neck muscles weaken, causing the skin to sag and drape. This problem can be caused by slowed collagen production, gravity, and weight fluctuations, which cause the neck muscles to lose elastic fibers and the skin to become thin.
When you arrive at our office for your consultation, Dr. Rizvi will take time to learn about your aesthetic goals and concerns. He will also explain the Neck Lift procedure in great detail to ensure it is a good fit for you. So bring all of your questions about this and any other cosmetic procedures you are interested in. We look forward to helping you navigate your options and plan a treatment that enables you to feel your absolute best.
A More Contoured Neck
Before your Neck Lift Los Angeles patients will have either local or general anesthesia administered in order to maximize comfort. In a traditional neck lift, Dr. Rizvi makes incisions on either side of the neck and in the center of the neck underneath the chin. He may then utilize liposuction to remove pockets of fat from the neck region. After this, he will tighten the platysma muscle, a very thin muscle of the lower face and neck. Finally, he will remove excess skin, carefully recontouring it before closing the incisions with sutures. This outpatient procedure can take anywhere from one and a half to three hours.
Dramatic and Long-Lasting Results
Platysmaplasty results are dramatic and long-lasting. The skin on your neck will be smoother, and you will have a noticeably more defined jaw and chin line. This procedure will also mitigate wrinkles and lax skin and slow the formation of neck bands. A Neck Lift is a great way to “turn back the clock” on signs of aging in this delicate area.
Follow Post-Operative Care
Recovery time from a Neck Lift is about two to three weeks. During this time, you may feel some tightness in the neck area. This is normal and shouldn't concern you. The affected area will most likely be swelling and bruising, but this will go away as you heal. Be sure and rest and do not engage in high-impact movements like running or aerobics that might cause harm to the sutures. Wear button-ups or loose clothing around the neck for at least the first few weeks until your body has healed. Also, avoid alcohol and aspirin, as these may cause bleeding. We will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and check your healing, but never hesitate to contact us with questions. We are here to support you and ensure a healthy recovery and beautiful results.
A facelift works to restore smoothness and youthful tone in the middle portion of the face, while a Neck Lift focuses on the neck and lower area of the face.
