Neck Lift Orange County
A Neck Lift can be performed as a single procedure, or be combined with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures like a Face Lift for more comprehensive improvements. This procedure improves excess wrinkling of the neck skin or a “turkey wattle”. This goal of this procedure is to tighten loose neck muscles and remove excess, sagging skin, restoring a smoother, firmer, and better defined appearance to the neck. This page will review some of the most common topics related to Neck Lift surgery. To view Before & After photos of Dr. Aiello’s Neck Lift patients, click HERE to go to the gallery.
How do I know if I need a Face lift and a neck LIFT?
While most patients do opt to perform these procedures together, if your face is not showing the same level of aging as your neck, you may be a candidate for just a Neck Lift. This procedure creates a firmer, smoother and more refined appearance to the neck. The neck is one of the first places where we show our age. Improving a thick, wrinkled or sagging neck can dramatically improve a one’s appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Aiello will recommend the best approach based on your goals.
WILL MY SCARS BE HIDDEN?
Neck Lift incisions usually start in front of your earlobes and continuing around behind your ears in your lower scalp. There will also be a small incision underneath your chin if the bands running vertically down the front of your neck need to be addressed. There are various incision approaches, depending on the extent of the surgery and the structures being altered. Dr. Aiello will discuss all of these options with you during your consultation.
Will a neck lift get rid of my double chin?
A Neck Lift addresses issues mostly due to aging, like sagging muscle and wrinkling of skin. Some patients may also want to correct features that are hereditary in nature such as a weak profile or a heavy “double” chin. These additional surgical approaches are commonly performed in conjunction with a Neck Lift to address these common issues:
- Chin Augmentation with a chin implant to better define or strengthen the profile and jawline.
- Liposuction to improve the appearance of a “double chin” or fullness under the chin.
During your consultation Dr. Aiello will advise you of all the procedures available to address every aspect of your desired outcome.
