Age Thoughtfully at Sunder Plastic Surgery

Our approach to enhancing your natural beauty reflects the idea that your outer appearance should resonate with the vitality you feel within. Committed to offering transformative solutions, we recognize that your neck plays a pivotal role in your overall aesthetic. Our practice is led by Dr. Sarmela Sunder, the only double board-certified female plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, who believes that feeling good about your appearance contributes to an empowered life.

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, also known as a lower facelift or lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to uniquely address common signs of aging in the neck and jawline.

This transformative procedure focuses on rejuvenating the neck's appearance by tightening sagging skin, sculpting and defining the jawline, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and creases, and improving the overall contour of the neck.

During a neck lift in Beverly Hills, excess skin and tissue are removed. At the same time, Dr. Sunder uses an advanced technique to tighten the neck muscles to achieve a more defined jawline and a smoother, more elegant shape that takes years off the appearance.


The Benefits of a Neck Lift

At Sunder Plastic Surgery, we understand that the neck can be one of the most indicative signs of aging, often revealing more than we'd like. Our neck lift procedure offers a solution that targets sagging skin and restores a more youthful contour. Discover the benefits that await you:

Is a Neck Lift Right for You?

Whether you've experienced weight loss, have neck concerns due to hereditary factors, or are seeing changes from the natural progression of time, a neck lift can provide a tailored solution to help you achieve a more youthful and confident look. Ideal candidates for a neck lift include anyone who desires to address signs of aging in the neck area, such as sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and muscle laxity.

If you've noticed that your neck is no longer reflecting the youth and vibrancy you feel inside, a neck lift in Beverly Hills can help restore a more toned and sculpted appearance.

This procedure is suitable for individuals who are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and are seeking to enhance their neck's contour and definition.

The Neck Lift Process What to Expect

Your journey towards a rejuvenated neck begins with a personalized consultation at Sunder Plastic Surgery. During this initial meeting, Dr. Sunder thoughtfully listens to your concerns to understand exactly what your aesthetic goals entail. She will evaluate your neck and skin, and discuss your medical history. This consultation is essential for creating a tailored treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.

When the day of your neck lift procedure arrives, you'll be provided with anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the surgery. Discrete incisions will be strategically placed below your chin and potentially in front of the earlobes, extending behind the ears and concluding in the scalp near the back of your neck. This careful approach allows Dr. Sunder to access the underlying tissues and address specific concerns.

Depending on your individual requirements, excess skin will be removed and lifted, while muscles contributing to visible neck bands may be tightened. The entire procedure typically takes around 2 to 4 hours, depending on the complexity. Liposuction might also be employed to eliminate excess fat deposits, if necessary. Dr. Sunder's expert precision minimizes scarring, resulting in a more youthful and natural-looking appearance. Following the procedure, you'll be monitored before being cleared to return home.

Dr. Sunder's commitment to achieving optimal results will guide your surgical experience, ensuring that the outcome aligns with your desired goals. Most neck lift procedures performed at our Beverly Hills office are outpatient procedures conducted under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation for your comfort and safety.


Neck Lift Recovery

Recovering from a neck lift in Beverly Hills involves several phases, each contributing to your journey toward a more sculpted, elegant appearance. Dr. Sunder's expert guidance and care will ensure a smooth process as you transition through these stages:

Immediate Recovery

Expect initial swelling and bruising that can last up to 10 days. Keeping your head elevated during the first week minimizes swelling. Avoid turning or twisting your head during the initial days post-surgery to aid healing.

First Week

Follow Dr. Sunder’s specific pre- and post-care instructions to allow for a faster recovery with minimal scarring. You might also wear a compression garment to aid healing.

Two to Four Weeks

Swelling and bruising will gradually subside, allowing you to return to work and light activities. More strenuous activities should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks.

Long-Term Results

Over several months, your neck will continue to heal, revealing smoother, more youthful contours. Protect your skin from sun exposure and follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results.

Throughout your recovery, Dr. Sunder's team will be available to address any questions or concerns, ensuring a safe, comfortable, and successful healing journey.
