What Is A Neck Lift?
Do you wear turtlenecks and scarves, even in warm weather to cover the loose, flabby skin on your neck? Plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Hakimi performs neck lift surgery at his Newport Beach, CA practice to address the appearance of an aging neck. This facial surgery tightens the area under your chin and along the neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By surgically removing the excess skin and fat while introducing a tightening technique to create a softer neckline, this procedure can provide significant improvements to your profile. If you are in Newport Beach, the Valley, Los Angeles, or any of the surrounding areas in California, call to schedule your consultation today.

"When I met Dr. Hakimi at the Beverly Hills office, I knew I have chosen the right surgeon to do the procedure I needed. Dr. Hakimi answered all my questions before and after the procedure. His calm, caring and patient demeanor made me feel safe and relaxed, that helped me to a stress free recovery. Dr. Hakimi is an amazing person and an experienced professional.

Thank you Dr. Hakimi!!"- C.Q. / Google / Oct 03, 2019
"When you’re wanting to improve how you feel about yourself aesthetically, it’s imperative you do your due diligence In selecting a surgeon you trust. I’ve met plastic surgeons who give you 5 minutes of their time and you just know they have other patients to see. NOT so with Dr Michael HakimI. He takes as much time as you need. I had a lower face and neck lift last year by Dr H and a tummy tuck a few weeks ago after being so pleased with the natural result I achieved from the face lift he performed. I initially went back asking about lipo for my stomach but Dr Hakimi explained I wouldn’t get the result I wanted with just lipo. And I trust him enough to know he’s much more experienced than I and wants his patients to get best results possible. I jokingly told him to do whatever he would want done for his mother. It has been 6 weeks since my abdominoplasty and the difference is remarkable.I tried on a bikini and didn’t recognize my midsection. It’s pretty amazing. I don’t even have to hold my stomach in anymore, it just stays flat all the time. A tummy tuck is not an easy procedure and definitely takes time to heal...but is sooo worth it. Do yourself a favor. If you’re considering plastic surgery, call and make an appointment with Dr Hakimi. Trust me, he’ll listen while watching your every facial expression and/or what you’re telling him what you want to achieve. And then follow his advice. You won’t be disappointed as he wants the very best outcome for all his patients. The office is beautiful, fastidiously clean and the entire staff is a joy to know. They offer hydro-facials, laser, lymphatic healing massages (a must have with Mel after a tummy tuck) and much more. Special kudos to Mel, Nicole, Kat and Pam. They all make doctor appointments a pleasure. THANK YOU dear Dr Hakimi."- J.P. / Google / Oct 22, 2020
"I highly recommend Dr. Hakimi. In the years I took to save up for my procedures I was researching surgeons. I’m glad I went with him. He is professional, respectful and a true perfectionist. "- M. / Healthgrades / Mar 24, 2021
"Dr. Hakimi and team, I needed to praise both you and your staff for the exceptional care you gave me through my procedure. Although a lower face lift is something I’d wanted for a few years, I was apprehensive. I was beginning to look so much older than I felt, a drooping jawline bothered me. My daughter did some extensive research on Plastic Surgery and Surgeons for me and when we had met the staff we knew it’s where I would truly be taken care of. I had so very many questions and each one was patiently answered. Nicole was so gracious, Dr. Hakimi did an amazing job on my surgery and Mel was so very caring. The healing took a took a few days before I felt comfortable going about my regular outings, but I healed so quickly. My neck looks so much better and my jaw line more youthful. Grateful for your care and the results! Thank you so much, Tammy Bacon"- D.B. / Google / May 11, 2021

Can I Get A Neck Lift?
We age from south to north. Neck usually shows signs of aging before the rest of your face. As long as your face doesnt have signs of advanced stages of aging such as heavy jowls a neck lift alone is a great procedure. Patients seeking neck lift treatment generally battle visibly sagging and hanging skin along the neckline. This loose skin is usually caused by numerous factors, like gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Whatever the reason may be, hanging neck skin causes an older, unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be corrected with skin removal and tightening. If your weight is stable, but you feel frustrated by the appearance of your neck, a neck lift surgery could be the answer you've been looking for.
How is A Neck Lift Performed?
During neck lift treatment, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed behind your ears and follows your earlobes in the front without extending up into your face. If pockets of fat exist, a form of liposuction will be completed first. Next, any sagging skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is performed until the desired contour has been achieved. Even though sutures are placed at the incision area, scars should not be seen since they are located under your chin. After your treatment, you will likely experience some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort, but these will fade within a week. You will likely notice visible results almost immediately. In addition, it has been noted that the neck lift treatment can make one of the most significant improvements to an individual's profile, shaving years off their appearance.
