Excess fat, loose, sagging skin, and prominent bands of the neck are some of the hallmarks of the aging face. These may be seen following weight loss or gain, and are more often due to the effects of age, gravity, and heredity. San Francisco plastic surgeon, Dr. Serebrakian, will recommend an appropriate technique based on your needs.
The ideal candidate for Neck lift surgery is someone who is interested in correcting excess fat on the neck.
A neck lift modifies and tightens the underlying muscles and connective tissue depending on the amount of loose skin. The Neck Lift procedure adds definition to your face and accentuates your jaw line. A Neck Lift provides patients with an overall fresh and more youthful appearance.
There are a variety of neck lift techniques available and Dr. Serebrakian will recommend the appropriate technique. He will also tailor your procedure to your unique needs, as every patient is different. In the case where the smaller neck lift procedure is needed, incorporating liposuction alone may be appropriate. For moderate laxity with “banding” of the muscles on the neck, a neck lift with platysmaplasty (where the drooping or banded muscles of the neck are released and tightened) with or without liposuction may be appropriate. In the case where a larger neck lift is needed, the normal neck lift procedure is performed, most often in conjunction with a facelift. This method of neck lift surgery produces rejuvenation of the face and neck together. In all three cases, the underlying muscles are tightened, and excess skin is removed producing a more youthful neckline.
At our offices in Larkspur and Pinole this procedure could be done either under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia.
