We often take the neck for granted until banding and unwanted fat begin to add years to our appearance. At PROFILES Beverly Hills, Drs. Solieman and Litner combine the best surgical neck lifts with non-surgical techniques to tighten and define this part of your body.
Neck lift surgery with double board-certified facial plastic surgeons Drs. Litner and Solieman of PROFILES Beverly Hills can get you the well defined and smooth jawline you have always wanted. Usually done with minimal sedation, this routine procedure is minimally invasive and has little, if any, downtime.
If you have noticed the emergence of a bulge under your neck, which remains no matter how much weight you lose, we invite you to visit our practice in Los Angeles to see how quickly a neck lift procedure can get you a smooth jawline and neck.
The incision for Beverly Hills neck liposuction is a small one that is hidden within a natural skin crease of the neck. A narrow tube known as a cannula is inserted through the incision into the fat layer deep beneath the skin. The cannula disrupts the fat cells which are then suctioned out. The entire neck is treated to provide a uniform tightening of the entire region. The procedure takes anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour to complete. In case deeper layers need to be targeted and repositioned, the doctors will provide you with a customized surgical plan and the procedure will take longer to be completed.
After a neck lift, our Beverly Hills surgeons recommend you stay in a recovery room for observation. Generally, patients are surprised that there is little pain. Your neck may feel achy, particularly during the first day after your procedure. We provide medication to control any discomfort that you may experience. Furthermore, you will be given specific instructions for gradually returning to your normal activities and will have an opportunity to discuss these with your surgeon prior to surgery. In general, you may need to avoid strenuous activities like jogging, bending, swimming, sexual activities or any other activities that increase your blood pressure for two to three weeks. Because we care about your immediate comfort and long term results, we schedule all of your follow-up appointments when you schedule your surgery. We are committed to your long term results and happiness, therefore we do our best to follow your postoperative course even years after your surgery. If you want to learn more about working with Drs. Litner and Solieman to tighten your neck, contact Beverly Hills PROFILES and book an appointment today.
Prior to your surgery at PROFILES, you will be given specific instructions on preparing for your Beverly Hills neck lift including guidelines for eating and drinking, medication intake, smoking, and aftercare. Please be sure that while preparing for your surgery, you arrange for someone to give you a ride home after your procedure as you will be able to go home the same day.
All of our outpatient procedures including neck liposuction in Beverly Hills are performed in our state-of-the-art fully-accredited surgical facility – the Los Angeles PROFILES Surgery Center.
Local anesthesia is commonly used for a neck lift and it is typically combined with sedation. Though you will be awake, the treatment area will be numb and you will be relaxed and insensitive to pain.
If you notice a fullness under your neck or more recently became aware that your jawline is not what it used to be, then a neck lift in Beverly Hills, in combination with liposuction and lasers, can rejuvenate the area with minimal downtime. Depending on your anatomy, skin type and texture, and degree of aging, you may be an excellent candidate for this procedure.

During this meeting, they will do the utmost to answer all your questions and address your concerns before making any decisions
By the end of your consultation with our surgeons, you will have a clear picture as to whether a neck lift is the right procedure for you, and whether it should be done as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with other treatments.
Like all cosmetic procedures, there are temporary side-effects and potential risks that come with neck lifts and neck liposuction. These include:
Dr. Solieman and Dr. Litner work closely with each and every one of their patients to ensure that they receive the best results with minimal complications.
Neck lift procedures can help rejuvenate this part of your body by eliminating some of the sagging skin. It can also tighten visible wrinkles. All patients are different, so recovery times and results can vary. However, most patients return to their daily activities a few weeks after the procedure, with the exception of high-intensity physical activity that must be avoided for some time.
It is common to experience inflammation, temporary numbness, and discomfort throughout the recovery period. There are many factors that cause prolonged inflammation, so all cases are different. Most patients tend to experience swelling for the first few days, but Drs. Litner and Solieman will go through your recovery process with you and answer any doubts then.
You will experience skin tightness after a neck lift, but this sensation will fade with time as your skin adjusts. Drs. Litner and Solieman will consult with you the day after the procedure and give you tips on relieving some of the tension.
Neck lifts are minimally invasive, but you will still receive light sedation before the procedure. You will not experience any pain or discomfort during the neck lift. Furthermore, patients usually experience mild discomfort that can be managed with over the counter analgesics during the recovery period.
