A Neck Lift can:

  • Restore a sharper, firmer-looking jaw line and eliminate "neck wattles"
  • Eliminate "jowling" and sagginess created by loose muscles or excess skin and fat
  • Energize your look and enhance a more youthful self-image

Planning Your Procedure

Neck sagging results from a variety of causes, each patient requires an individualized assessment and surgical plan. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian is committed to understanding and meeting each patient’s individual needs and has extensive experience researching and implementing some of the most advanced cosmetic surgery techniques available today.

Dr. Hovsepian will perform a thorough examination of your neck and personally discuss your enhancement goals before you agree on a customized plan for the neck lift technique that offers the results you desire. A neck lift may include one of three procedures, depending on the degree of sagging and heaviness of the neck.

Your Neck Lift Options

  • Liposuction: Patient has good elasticity but has fat needing to be corrected.
  • Cervicoplasty: Extreme loose skin and muscles, with poor elasticity.
  • Platysmaplasty: Removal or alteration of neck muscles.

Typically, a neck lift will include the removal of fat. Cervicoplasty may be included to tighten excess skin, and platysmaplasty to remove or tighten neck muscles, a process that gets rid of unwanted band lines.

A neck lift may also be part of a combination treatment plan, in conjunction with a facelift or mid-facelift.

Dr. Raffi Hovsepian and his highly trained surgical team demonstrate the highest level of professionalism in pursuing aesthetic and surgical standards for each procedure while providing personalized quality care. He is happy to discuss the measures taken to ensure your results harmonize beautifully and naturally with your features.

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 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.
