Neck Lift

head-and-neck-surgery-la-peer-healthFor many people, the neck is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. The skin on the neck often becomes loose and slack, and fat deposits and flaps of tissue can make us look much older than we actually are. Whether it is excess skin or fat deposits, a necklift can bring your neck back into its youthful shape.

The stunning difference in before and after pictures of our neck lifts is due in no small part to the innovative minimally invasive techniques utilized by our surgeons. They will customize your surgery to address all of your unique concerns. To schedule your initial consultation today, call (855) 360-9119.


Because of the unique team approach lead by a pair of expert facial plastic surgeons in Dr. Babak Azizzadeh and Dr. Carlo Honrado, undergoing a neck lift at the state-of-the-art facilities of La Peer Health Systems has never been safer or more comfortable.

Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained surgeon who has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show for his knowledge of facial plastic surgery and has penned several medical books, including the highly regarded Beverly Hills Beauty Secrets and Master Techniques in Facial Rejuvenation. Meanwhile, Dr. Honrado brings more than twenty years of facial plastic and reconstructive experience to patients with an impressive background in otolaryngology (he is triple board certified).


A neck lift is a set of procedures to enhance the appearance of your neck. Neck lifts can be performed in a variety of ways, depending on the needs of the individual. Procedures can include removing excess skin, removing or altering neck muscles, liposuction to remove excess fat, and Botox injections to address problems with fullness.

Often times performed in conjunction with a facelift, a neck lift is an ideal surgery for those who wish to reduce the amount of excess skin, fat, and wrinkles around their neck area resulting in a more attractive, contoured neck. At La Peer Health Systems, world-renowned board certified facial plastic surgeons Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, and Carlo Honrado, MD, FACS, will help you decide whether or not you’re a good candidate to undergo this procedure.

A neck lift surgery consists of your plastic surgeon removing any fatty accumulations under your skin and tightening the deep muscle layer beneath your neck. Because this surgery is commonly performed with a facelift, there isn’t any additional recovery time necessary, as your neck will heal during the same time as your face. Over the course of the next several weeks following your surgery, slight bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort is to be expected as all are natural steps in the healing process. A patient can expect to see full results from their neck lift several months after having the procedure performed.


A platysmaplasty procedure is performed to reduce a banded appearance of the neck region. Small incisions will be made under the chin and/or behind the ears. Your expert facial plastic surgeon will then insert a tiny instrument to either eliminate certain neck muscles or realign the muscles. This tightens the middle area of the neck. The surgeon will permanently secure areas of the muscles to keep them in the best possible position.

A good candidate for a platysmaplasty may be someone who is in the late stages of the aging process and who has previously not undergone any cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of an aging face or neck. The best way to determine whether or not you might be a good candidate to undergo this type of neck lift is to consult with a facial plastic surgeon.


For those who aren’t entirely sure that they’re ready for an invasive or permanent surgery, there are many other types of facial rejuvenation treatments that a person can undergo to help fight the aging process. At La Peer Health Systems, our Los Angeles plastic surgeons treat patients with the following to aid in facial rejuvenation, including but not limited to:

  • Botox (Wrinkles, Crows Feet, Fine Lines)
  • Fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, Perlane)
  • Ulthera Skin Tightening (Ultrasound Therapy)
  • Fat Grafting

All procedures listed above have virtually no down time and allow patients to see results relatively quickly. Both Dr. Azizzadeh and Dr. Honrado have extensive training and backgrounds in the use of injectable treatments for cosmetic purposes, as Dr. Honrado serves as a member of the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery while Dr. Azizzadeh is a director of the annual Multispecialty Plastic Surgery Symposium at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Facial rejuvenation techniques are ideal for most every patient.


When you’re wondering whether or not you’d be a good candidate to undergo a neck lift, or any other type of facial rejuvenation that can help you overcome the aging process, both Dr. Azizzadeh and Dr. Honrado encourage you to contact us to learn more about how we can help you decide upon your perfect procedure. At La Peer Health Systems, a patients needs is always put above all else, allowing us to provide the proper surgical care throughout the entire process.
