In addition to the looseness of the skin, there is a progressive weakening of the muscles of the neck region, and extra fatty tissue.The neck may start to sag due to aging, weight gain, weight loss, sun exposure, smoking, and genetics.

At Beverly Hills Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kapoor specializes in the male neck lift procedure.

The patient will discuss with Dr. Kapoor their ideal aesthetic for this procedure. Dr. Kapoor will create a personalized procedure plan detailing all procedure and recovery details. Dr. Kapoor will spend time educating the patient and answering any questions they may have about the neck lift procedure.
The neck lift procedure may take anywhere from 1-3 hours to perform. General anesthesia will be administered to prepare for the procedure. Incisions will be carefully made under the chin and behind the ear. Through these incisions, Dr. Kapoor will remove any fat deposits under the chin, tighten the muscles, and remove loose skin. This procedure can be performed alone or combined with other procedures to achieve the desired aesthetic. A neck lift is most commonly paired with a facelift procedure. This procedure requires little to no downtime. Most patients can return to work within a week of the neck lift procedure.
