Although many signs of aging develop in the face, they can also develop in the neck. To help patients maintain a youthful appearance, Newport Plastic Surgery offers neck lifts with Dr. Go’s expertise, a leading plastic surgeon in Irvine, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, and the nearby communities in CA.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a surgical treatment designed to improve the appearance and tone of the neck area, restoring it to a more youthful appearance. Dr. Go has performed hundreds of neck lift procedures and considers it to be one of his main areas of expertise that he enjoys doing. This technique can address wrinkles, excess fat and sagging skin in the neck, loose platysmal muscle banding, as well as a double chin and sagging jowls. Some patients choose to combine their neck lift procedure with a facelift to achieve more comprehensive rejuvenation benefits.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
The cost of a neck lift can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
A neck lift is performed under local sedation or general anesthesia to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient. Dr. Go will make incisions behind the ears, where they will be well-hidden. In some cases, an additional incision will be discreetly placed under the chin. Through these incisions, he will remove excess fat and skin, tightening the neck muscles, and meticulously drape and suture the remaining skin in order to produce the desired results.
At Newport Plastic Surgery, Dr. Go takes pride in making necklifts one of his main areas of expertise that he enjoys doing. He has performed hundreds of these procedures over the years and is confident in achieving his patients’ goals in the safest and most effective manner possible.
What is Recovery Like After a Neck Lift?
After a neck lift, patients can expect some bruising, swelling, and discomfort for a couple of weeks. Patients may have to take one to two weeks off of work and other normal activities to allow the body to heal. During this time, it is recommended that patients avoid excessive neck motion. Exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for at least a month.
