Neck Lift Introduction

While most neck lift surgeries are done in combination with a facelift, a Neck Lift can be performed independently, especially for those with prominent “turkey necks”. The essence of a neck lift is to tighten the loose and separated platysma muscle sheets back to the area just in front of the windpipe, with rearrangement of the side portion of the platysma and neck skin behind the ears.

Dr. Arthur Yu, a board-certified plastic surgeon and expert at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa offers Neck Lift surgery to patients in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and the surrounding Arcadia area as a solution to rejuvenate the neck. We are thrilled to see how this procedure can help patients achieve a transformative change in their appearance.

What is a Neck Lift?

A Neck Lift, medically known as platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that can give your neck a more contoured and youthful appearance. It works by lifting and tightening your platysma muscle, a thin sheet of muscle that goes from your collarbones to your lower face. It is the platysma that allows movement in your lower face. A Neck Lift in the Los Angeles & Pasadena area is an effective solution for individuals who are bothered by the signs of aging in their neck area, such as loose or sagging skin and the presence of excess fat or jowls.

Neck Lift First Step

What’s The First Step?

The first step in considering a Neck Lift in the surrounding Los Angeles and Pasadena area is to schedule a consultation at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa. During this initial appointment, your surgeon will discuss your medical history, aesthetic goals, and expectations, and finally, will evaluate your neck and in a comprehensive examination to determine if you are a suitable candidate for a Neck Lift.

 During the consultation, it is important to openly communicate your expectations and desired outcomes with Dr. Yu. This will allow him to tailor the treatment plan specifically to your needs and provide you with the best possible results. Once you decide on the procedure and have a treatment plan, our patient coordinator will guide you through the necessary pre-operative preparations and provide you with detailed instructions to ensure a smooth and successful experience.

What to Expect on the Day of Neck Lift surgery

On the day of your Neck Lift surgery, Dr. Yu and our friendly team will welcome you to our practice. At Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, we understand how sensitive the neck area can be and are determined to ensure you that the procedure will be comfortable and efficient. This is why we will go over your treatment plan again before beginning to make sure you do not have any outlying questions and/or concerns. 

Once you are under anesthesia, Dr. Yu will make discreet incisions in strategic locations, typically around the ears and possibly under the chin, to access the underlying neck tissues. They will then carefully reposition and tighten the platysma muscle, remove any excess skin, and sculpt the neck contour to achieve the desired outcome. 

When the surgery is complete, Dr. Yu will close the incisions using sutures or other appropriate techniques. Dressings or bandages may be applied to protect the incisions and support the healing process.

Neck Lift Recovery

After a Neck Lift in our Arcadia surgery center, it is important to follow a proper recovery plan to promote healing and achieve optimal results. Following the surgery, it is common to experience minor swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the neck area.

Your surgeon will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your incisions, manage pain, and minimize swelling.

During the initial days after the procedure, it is recommended to rest and avoid strenuous activities.

You may need to wear a compression garment to support the neck and aid in the healing process. It is crucial to keep the incision sites clean and follow the prescribed skincare routine as instructed by the surgeon’s team.

 The results of a Neck Lift are not immediately visible as it takes the swelling some time to resolve. Furthermore, incision lines and any scarring will take about six months to fade and become less noticeable.
