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.
"I have been going to Dr. Moradi's office for many years. He along with his staff are so welcoming and provide many wonderful services. Recently I started seeing Becca and she is wonderful! I highly recommend their office."- C.D. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2019
"I went in to consult with Josalynn and she offered her unbiased opinion and did not try to up-sell me on anything. She was respectful, knowledgeable, and professional. Based on my skin concerns, we decided on a mid-level chemical peel to get rid of mainly dry, discolored, and dull-looking skin. I've received many compliments after one treatment. I am anxious to see how my skin will look after the second. I trust Josaylnn's work and will definitely be back to receive more treatments. Satisfied customer :)"- N.M. / Yelp / Jan 07, 2020
"As a fairly long-term patient (5+ years) of Dr. Moradi, I can honestly say that he’s a doctor I actually look forwarding to seeing! He’s absolutely wonderful in every regard from his gentle and caring bedside manner to his professionalism and expertise. He thoroughly listens to your wishes and concerns without rushing the appointment, spending the appropriate amount of time and as much time as required to achieve successful results. I only trust Dr. Moradi with cosmetic treatments. He’s sincere, genuine and passionate about his work. I’m always reassured that I may return following any treatment if I’m not completely satisfied with the results and I feel like an adjustment or touch-up is necessary, often at no additional cost to me.Dr. Moradi also has an excellent staff. They all work so well together. I give them just as much of a shoutout. A well rounded fully dedicated staff with a PA, registered nurse and aestheticians. My experiences have always been positive. Veronica, Dr. Moradi’s right hand, is very helpful and pleasant. The front office gals are also amazing. They have an important job having the first contact with patients and making the first impression.They run a tight ship running it smoothly and efficiently. They’re quite punctual. Rarely have I ever had to wait. In fact, I get taken back into a room before my appointment time whenever I arrive and check in early. Unheard of at most doctor offices! I can’t rave enough about Dr. Moradi and company. I’m so grateful and thankful for them. I always leave an appointment feeling refreshed! They’re just the best!!!"- T.G. / Google / Dec 19, 2019
"I had my first visit with Dr. Moradi today and I have to say I was impressed and will be a returning client. I was going to a very good plastic surgery office in Del Mar for botox and filler but lately had been feeling that they took my business for granted and they weren't really taking the time to properly administer my treatment. Dr. Moradi's office was beautiful and I didn't have to deal with the attitude of my previous place. Dr. Moradi is very knowledgeable about the different types of filler and took the time to educate me on the treatments I wanted done and had zero interest in just quickly injecting me and taking my payment. He advised me on the best course of action and did a very skilled job at administering botox in my forehead and radiesse in my cheeks. I am over the moon with my results. Very happy to have found an office like this so close to home."- N.P. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2019
"LA LA LA LOVE THIS PLACE and the people."- E.R. / Google / Nov 16, 2019
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.
