Neck Lift

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Beverly Hills and Tarzana, CA

A neck lift directly addresses loose or sagging skin around the neck. As we age, our neck muscles weaken and the skin over top becomes looser, causing a saggy “turkey neck” appearance. Excess fat accumulation under the weakened neck muscle results in a bulky, less defined chin and jawline and liposuction is ineffective in extracting this sub-platysmal fat (fat under the platysma or neck muscle). This is where a neck lift and neck “de-bulking” can contour a better jawline.

Recovery

A minimum of 5-7 days of downtime is needed for the initial recovery. A follow-up is required after a week to remove any drains and exterior sutures as well as to check on the overall healing process. Swelling will be prominent for the first 2-3 days so patients will be required to wear compression garments 24/7 to reduce swelling and promote healing. Keep your head elevated and take the prescribed medications as directed by Dr. Batal. Most patients can return to work in as little as 7-10 days but in some cases 2-4 weeks will be needed to completely heal and for the swelling to go down.
