Restore a graceful, refined contour to your neck

Young or old, men and women in Monterey are opting for neck lift plastic surgery. A neck lift tightens loose neck muscles while removing excess fat and skin to achieve a more youthful, refined appearance. As a result, neck lift cosmetic surgery with Monterey plastic surgeon Dr. Douglas Sunde can help patients’ appearance, making them look as if they have lost weight.

Personalized Care for Individual Goals

Dr. Sunde is experienced in performing neck contouring alone or in combination with other procedures. During an initial consultation, Dr. Sunde discusses goals realistically with each patient and explains the procedure details. Together, the patient and the doctor decide which procedures he will perform to achieve the desired results. Once a date for surgery is set, Dr. Sunde will provide instructions on how to prepare for surgery and explain what to expect during recovery.

Neck Contouring Procedure Options

Depending on a patient’s individual anatomy and goals, Dr. Sunde may perform one of two neck lift procedures, alone or in combination with neck liposuction, to improve the appearance of a patient’s neck.

Neck Lifting Procedures

Neck lifting procedures are designed to address sagging tissues on the neck and under the chin. Cervicoplasty is a procedure that removes excess, drooping skin, while platysmaplasty tightens loose neck muscles. Typically, these procedures are best suited to patients with poorer skin elasticity due to aging or significant weight loss. A neck lift is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to restore a youthful appearance to the entire facial profile. With tighter, smoother skin on the neck and chin, patients can look dramatically younger and even healthier.

Neck Liposuction

For patients primarily concerned with excess fat underneath the chin, Dr. Sunde may perform liposuction to create a more refined neckline. The best candidates for neck liposuction have fairly good skin elasticity, and therefore neck liposuction tends to be more popular among younger patients. Neck liposuction can also enhance the results of a chin augmentation by adding definition to the jawline.
