A neck lift is an effective and popular cosmetic procedure that is performed for patients who are experiencing sagging or loose skin under their chin or around their neck. Loose skin can gradually appear with age or can be a result of weight loss. Along with loose skin can also come wrinkles and creases within the neck area as well. A neck lift seeks to restore both the sagging skin and the wrinkles by surgically tightening and removing the excess skin and folds, resulting in a firmer, more youthful look. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi and his team can offer a free consultation at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA, to determine whether you are in need of skin tightening (a neck lift) or if you can also benefit from neck liposuction.
A neck lift removes hanging skin and reshapes the neck. During the procedure, an incision is placed under the chin and/or behind or in front of the ears. If fat deposits are present and need to be removed, liposuction will be used during the surgery and performed first. The final steps of treatment will be to trim away excess skin, pull the remaining underlying tissue and muscle tight, and suture the incision.

This procedure is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited surgical clinic. The duration of the surgery usually takes around 2 hours, although it may vary depending on the case. Bruising and swelling will be visible after the surgery, but this will subside in the few short days following the procedure. Initially, patients will feel tightness and numbness. Once the neck adjusts to its new position, patients will notice a more relaxed feeling and a beautiful surgical result. It can take up to 6 months for the final results to appear.
