Neck Lift at Cara Plastic Surgery

At Cara Plastic Surgery & Laser Center in Los Angeles/Orange County, Dr. Kahng can perform neck lift surgery to restore a more youthful appearance to the neck and jawline. This can be done as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with other procedures, such as facelift, liposuction, cheek augmentation, or other cosmetic enhancement.

What is a Neck Lift?

Advances in medical technology have made neck lift surgery a safer, more effective procedure in recent years. This cosmetic treatment is growing in popularity. As reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 55,227 procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2016, representing a 2% increase over the previous year.

A neck lift is performed to enhance the appearance of the neck, and reduce the appearance of aging tissues and skin. In this procedure, our skilled plastic surgeon will tighten the skin and underlying muscles in the neck and improve the contours of the jawline.

Do I Need A Neck Lift?

Patients choose to undergo neck lift surgery to correct:

Turkey Wattle

Loose muscles and vertical bands on the neck can be a dreadful sign of the aging process, adding years to your appearance. Aging, gravity, environmental factors, excess weight, heredity, and lifestyle choices can contribute to this unsightly condition. A turkey wattle (excess neck skin and tissue) is one of the primary reasons many of our patients undergo a neck lift.

Excess Fat in the Neck Area

A double chin does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with being overweight. Many people of normal weight suffer from this cosmetic issue, which can be the result of aging skin that can no longer support tissue as it did in the past. Neck lift surgery may be combined with liposuction to remove any excess fat located under the chin.

Loose, Excess Skin

In some cases, a double chin is not a matter of excess fat, but rather loose, hanging, excess skin. In a neck lift procedure, the surgeon can lift and trim excess skin to create a more youthful contour of the neck and a more defined jawline.

Benefits of a Neck Lift

Unfortunately, some of the earliest signs of aging appear in the neck area. In a neck lift procedure, through carefully placed incisions behind the ear, around the earlobe, and under the chin, our skilled plastic surgeon can correct:

  • Skin laxity in the neck and jawline
  • Excess fat under the chin
  • Vertical muscle bands in the neck

A neck lift in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Gabriel & Buena Park can dramatically improve the appearance of the neck and produce smoother, more appealing contours and a more defined jawline. Schedule a consultation with our highly trained plastic surgeons to determine if this procedure is recommended.

Deep Neck Lift

While the neck can show signs of aging before the face, a deep neck lift in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Gabriel & Buena Park can stop aging in its tracks. This surgery involves lifting the skin, muscle, fat, glands, and connective tissue to create a smooth and defined neck. The result is a sculpted, defined, contoured neck for an elegant profile.

A deep neck lift offers the following benefits:

  • Eliminating a double-chin
  • Refining the definition and shape of the jawline
  • Improving the fit of open-necked or collared shirts
  • Contouring the neck for a graceful, more elegant shape
  • Causing minimal scarring
  • Achieving a more defined, sculpted jawline
  • Improving self-confidence and self-esteem

How is a Deep Neck Lift Performed

The procedure is done under general IV anesthesia and takes about an hour, during which Dr. Kahng will make a single 1-inch incision hidden beneath the chin. Through this incision, he will lift and sculpt the layers of the neck, remove fat, and tighten the muscles. Downtime lasts 7-14 days.

Because a deep neck lift procedure is specifically designed to lift the neck contours, it may not address loose, droopy skin. As such, this procedure is more suitable for younger patients under 40 with genetically heavy necks. For patients over 40 experiencing loose, sagging skin, a deep plane facelift combined with a deep neck lift is the best option.

Ideal Candidates for a Deep Neck Lift

To be an ideal candidate for a deep neck lift in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Gabriel & Buena Park, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Have no serious medical concerns
  • Non-smoker
  • Have lost definition in the jawline
