Aging of the neck causes a combination of loose skin and muscle, as well as some excess fat. A neck lift can restore a tight, youthful appearance to skin area under the chin and neck which has lost elasticity and exhibits banding. It also corrects the heavy neck or double chin. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian’s precision in providing excellence in surgical treatment can restore a more youthful, firmer, smoother, and revitalized appearance.
Neck Lift Surgery
Before your procedure, Dr. Hovsepian and his aesthetic team will meet with you to answer any questions you may have and make sure you understand your procedure and recovery thoroughly.
Safety, privacy, comfort, and excellence in treatment with trusting compassionate care are the hallmark of Dr. Raffi Hovsepian’s patient experience.
Prior to coming into the Beverly Hills or Newport Beach surgery center, you will need to begin fasting 8 hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.
A neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia which means you will be asleep and feel nothing during surgery. An overnight stay can be provided at a fully accredited surgical center, where a "private duty" nurse is available. The surgery itself generally takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas.
