Neck Lift and Neck Rejuvenation in Santa Monica with Plastic Surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian - Santa Monica Plastic Surgery - Facelift

Learn more about Neck Lift Surgery

Aging of the neck and jawline are important components of facial aging and may cause many men and women embarrassment or social anxiety. Although facelift procedures can restore the youthfulness of the face, some patients may request a necklift or mini necklift to restore youthfulness to the jawline and neckline.  Newer technologies allow plastic surgeons to perform neck rejuvenation using laser procedures, mini necklifts, chemical peels, and liposuction to restore the neckline.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an experienced plastic surgeon in the Santa Monica and Beverly Hills area and can provide you with a natural enhancement oto the neckline and jawline.  The following treatments are offered by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian and can be tailored to your individual needs:


Mini necklift:  A mini necklift addresses small areas of the midline neck including vertical platysmal banding and/or excessive fat.  Using small incisions placed under the chin, Dr. Karamanoukian can remove excess fat stores and eliminates vertical neck bands that are prominent on the midline anterior neck.  A mini necklift requires less time to full recovery and can provide options for patients who do not require a full facelift or full necklift.


Necklift:  A necklift procedure accomplishes two main tasks.  The first task is to repair the muscle that supports the neck and jawline.  This neck support is known as a platysmaplasty and is performed with Corset sutures that are placed to tighten the neck muscle.  In addition, a necklift procedure removes excess skin and fat from the anterior neck and jawline in order to recontour those areas.  A necklift procedure is less invasive than a full facelift, but can restore the areas of the neck to a more youthful appearance.


Neck liposuction:  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs neck liposuction for patients with good skin tone and good muscle tone who have an extra area of fat along the anterior neck. Using two or three small incisions that are carefully placed in areas of the neck, a small cannula is used to vacuum liposuction areas of excessive fat.  Patients who have excessive skin may also benefit from neck liposuction as the skin usually retracts after liposuction.
