Neck Lift vs. Ulthera. Which One Is Right For You?

Neck Lift vs. Ultherapy


Patients who are candidates for a neck lift may consider plastic surgery or newer noninvasive skin tightening and tissue tightening treatments to improve the appearance of their neck and jawline.  The parts of the neck that begin to age with time include the skin, the jowl and pre-jowl areas.  In addition, muscle bands begin to form vertical and horizontal lines that make the neck area appear wrinkled and aged.  Traditionally, neck lift procedures improve the appearance of the jowls, wrinkles, extra skin, and deeper underlying tissue.  A neck lift is a surgical procedure that can be performed by expert facial plastic surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian.  Patients who have neck lift, whether men or women, can improve the appearance of their lower face and neck areas and look years younger.


A neck lift procedure involves incisions in front of and behind the ear and underneath the chin.  In doing so, the extra skin is removed and the weak and sagging muscle bands are tightened and resuspended.  A neck lift is one of the most gratifying cosmetic plastic surgery techniques available in the world.


For those patients who would like improvements in their neck, but do not have the downtime for surgery, there is a new revolutionary alternative that uses focused ultrasound energy to deliver and to tighten the neck area.  Ultherapy is an FDA approved nonsurgical and noninvasive procedure with no downtime.  Patients who have neck laxity may benefit from focused ultrasound which can tighten neck bands deep within the tissue.  The ulthera treatment is ideal for the jowl areas, jawline, and neck areas.  If you have questions about ultherapy and wish to speak with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office at 310-998-5533.  Our office is equipped with the latest technology in invasive and noninvasive cosmetic rejuvenation of the face.
