Dr. Hovsepian will perform a thorough examination of your neck and personally discuss your enhancement goals before you agree on a customized plan for the neck lift technique that offers the results you desire. A neck lift may include one of three procedures, depending on the degree of sagging and heaviness of the neck.
Typically, a neck lift will include the removal of fat. Cervicoplasty may be included to tighten excess skin, and platysmaplasty to remove or tighten neck muscles, a process that gets rid of unwanted band lines. A neck lift may also be part of a combination treatment plan, in conjunction with a facelift or mid-facelift.

Prior to coming into the Beverly Hills or Newport Beach surgery center, you will need to begin fasting 8 hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.
A neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia which means you will be asleep and feel nothing during surgery. An overnight stay can be provided at a fully accredited surgical center, where a "private duty" nurse is available. The surgery itself generally takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas.
