Before and After Photos
The Neck You Want
Women and men come to Dr. Azar for a neck lift, many of these Westlake Village, Simi Valley and Camarillo residents have a facelift as well. During the neck lift procedure, loose skin is carefully trimmed away and excess fat is removed.
The underlying muscle layer of the neck is also tightened with sutures. The remaining skin is re-draped and tightened. After surgery, swelling is reduced with a light neck sling, an elastic dressing that allows the treated area to heal properly.
Dr. Azar may recommend combining the neck lift with a facelift. The mechanical advantage of tightening the neck skin and muscle with a facelift results in a much more powerful operation to improve the neck than a neck lift alone. He will explain this in greater detail at your consultation.
Some patients may have strong, prominent neck muscles that never really gave them a very youthful neck, even when they were younger. These patients can be dramatically improved by both removing and tightening some of the prominent neck muscles during the neck lift.
Patients concerned more about a double chin whose skin remains relatively elastic may be good candidates for KYBELLA® injections, a non-surgical treatment to reduce fat below the chin.
A neck lift can make you look years younger, especially when combined with other facial sculpting surgery. In certain cases, Dr. Azar can use BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to renew the neck by softening vertical bands and horizontal wrinkles.
