An elegant neck is a coveted trait that can define you as youthful and slender. Unfortunately, the effects of sun, aging and gravity take a toll on the neck and can lead to sagging skin, vertical bands, fine wrinkles and localized fat. These signs of aging often betray our energy and vitality. Fortunately for patients in and around Los Angeles, neck enhancement procedures restore a well-defined neck and help you look as young as you feel.
We all age differently, so when it comes to enhancing your neck and reversing the signs of aging, a customized approach is always best. With my years of experience and innovative repertoire of techniques, I have the skills and knowledge to design the approach that best fits you. During your consultation, I'll take the time to discuss your options and work with you on a treatment plan to meet your needs.
Neck enhancement can improve the look and contour of your neck through either one procedure or a combination of procedures. Based on your concerns, I'll discuss your best options with you.
There are multiple ways to improve the appearance of your neck. During our initial consultation, I'll perform a thorough examination to determine the approach best suited to your needs. The most popular procedures for neck enhancement are:
A neck lift in Los Angeles tightens the skin to restore the angle between the neck and the chin and to smooth vertical bands. Incisions are made behind the ears and under the chin using a precise technique that makes the most of your natural facial contours. The scars are virtually undetectable.
For younger patients who have good skin elasticity but a double chin caused by fatty tissue, I often recommend neck liposuction. Performing liposuction is much like sculpting. I have performed thousands of liposuction procedures, and I take pride in delivering consistently beautiful results for my patients.
For those patients with smaller-than-ideal chins, a chin implant may substantially improve the appearance of the neck. It creates a better framework for supporting the skin of the neck and lengthens the distance between the chin and throat.
The best candidates for neck enhancement surgery in Los Angeles are patients who have excess fat, loose skin or muscle bands on the neck. When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, neck enhancement can:
Recovery from neck liposuction alone is quick. Most patients are comfortable returning to work the next day after wearing an elastic neck support overnight. Neck lift patients typically take one week off to recover before returning to work. Most of my patients say the discomfort is easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
Of all the surgeries I perform in Los Angeles, neck lifts and neck liposuction achieve some of the most satisfying results. Many of my patients add complementary procedures such as facelift, chin augmentation and BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments to achieve even more dramatic results.
Negative side effects associated with neck enhancement surgery are uncommon in my practice. Possible risks include infection, bleeding and skin damage. Each of these may be minimized with diligent care. Take the first step toward achieving a lean, youthful neck. Request a consultation online, or call our office at (310) 300-1779.
