What are the benefits of a neck lift surgery? Plastic Surgeon in Los Angeles - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian

A neck lift surgery is a common cosmetic surgical procedure that is performed to tighten the neck line and neck contour.  The patients often request neck lift surgery alone or in combination with a face lift.  As the neck ages, the fascial support of the neck muscles begins to loosen, therein causing vertical neck bands, neck wrinkling, and loss of skin elasticity along the neck and jawline.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in neck liposuction and neck lift surgery procedures.  He performs cosmetic plastic surgery of the face and body and places special emphasis on neck rejuvenation as it is an important determinant of a youthful face.  Neck lift surgery can be performed in combination with a face lift using small incisions that are carefully placed under the chin and behind the ear.  For patients who do not wish to undergo neck lift surgery, options include neck liposuction with ultrasonic energy or laser energy in order to tighten the skin of the neck and remove excess fat. 


If you have questions about neck laxity and treatments to improve vertical neck band along the neck, Dr. Karamanoukian is the plastic surgeon of choice.  He has written an assortative article on neck rejuvenation that has been published in over 15 countries internationally.  Please call our cosmetic surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533 to schedule a comprehensive consultation for facial rejuvenation and neck lift surgery.

The patients who are interested in face and neck rejuvenation may benefit from a neck lift to tighten the skin and muscle fascia along the neck line and jawline.  A technique called an anterior midline platysmaplasty is performed to tighten the midline fascia of the neck muscles in order to create a more contoured anterior neck line.  The platysmaplasty is performed by carefully resuspending the neck along the midline of  the anterior neck.  By resuspending the muscles back to their normal anatomic location, the neck muscles are tightened resulting in a more contoured and attractive neckline.
