Neck Lift in Agoura Hills
A surgical neck lift is an invaluable weapon in any surgeon’s anti-aging arsenal. It can correct platysmal bands, reduce a double chin, combat sagging, drooping skin, and jumpstart your self-confidence. Performed alone – or with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift, brow lift, blepharoplasty, or rhinoplasty – a neck lift can beautifully restore a youthful, attractive profile and create a more pleasing, professional look. If you are tired of appearing older than you feel, contact Dr. Tansavatdi today to learn more about the exciting benefits of a strategic neck lift.
What is a neck lift?
Also called platysmaplasty, a neck lift tightens loose muscles, removes sagging skin, and combats fatty tissue beneath the chin. The result is a more youthful, attractive profile that fills you with self-confidence. During surgery, small, inconspicuous incisions are made behind the ears, within the hairline and beneath the chin. The doctor is then able to trim extraneous skin, tighten the platysmal muscles, and remove stubborn pockets of fat.
Liposuction is often used in tandem with a neck lift to further contour the area and ensure a firm, sculpted aesthetic. Your neck lift can be combined with several other facial cosmetic treatments such as a facelift, blepharoplasty, a brow lift, or rhinoplasty to produce comprehensive, age-defying transformation.

Who makes an ideal candidate for a neck lift?
An ideal candidate for a neck lift is troubled by a loss of elasticity in the neck as well as platysmal banding, a double chin, and a poor-looking profile overall. They may have previously opted for non-surgical methods of skin tightening, but found that only a surgical solution can accomplish their aesthetic goals.
Clients pursuing surgery should be non-smokers of sound mind and body who are seeking improvement in their appearance rather than perfection. Dr. Tansavatdi will conduct an in-depth evaluation of your skin and underlying muscle structure during your private consultation and will create a personalized treatment tailored to your wishes.
What will my recovery entail?
Each neck lift is personalized with a different degree of skin removal and muscle tightening, so recovery times will vary from patient to patient. Most clients return to work within about 2 weeks, but are asked to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for an additional month.
During recovery, you may experience minor bruising, swelling, tenderness, and numbness, but these symptoms will slowly fade over the coming weeks. Dr. Tansavatdi will provide you with ample pain medications and a customized timeline for your healing. A neck lift usually needs to be performed only once with beautiful, elegant results lasting for years to come.
