Achieve a more youthful and revitalized aesthetic with a strategic neck lift in Santa Clarita, CA
Don’t let loose and sagging skin on your neck affect your self-esteem and confidence. The residents of Valencia, Santa Clarita, and the surrounding areas of California can reverse this with neck lift surgery performed by Dr. Howard Hu at Valencia Plastic Surgery.
The skin around the neck is highly delicate, and therefore requires the approach of an experienced plastic surgeon with a penchant for elegant, nuanced results. Dr. Hu is known for his stunning, yet natural-looking outcomes, and for this reason is considered among the best neck lift surgeons in Valencia, Santa Clarita and beyond.
Our Valencia neck lift procedure, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, improves the appearance of the neck by reducing the signs of aging in this area. It can include removal of excess fat or skin in the neck, under the chin, or on the lower face.
Neck lift surgery is sometimes performed at the same time as a facelift to provide a more even appearance. It is an outpatient procedure that can be performed with either local or general anesthesia, depending on the severity of the case.
Neck lift patients enjoy the following benefits:

Our Santa Clarita neck lift procedure begins with anesthesia to ensure your comfort.
Next, Dr. Hu will make one or more of the following incisions to access fat, muscle, or other tissues:
The type of incision required will depend on the severity of the skin laxity. A small amount of skin laxity in a healthy adult may only require a “mini” neck left, which can sometimes be performed under local anesthesia or sedation. The incisions in this operation are much shorter than those required with a full neck lift, and no drains are needed.
Those with more moderate to severe skin laxity will require a full neck lift, which is performed under general anesthesia. The incisions for this surgery are longer and can extend into the hairline behind the ears. Drains are typically placed, although they are usually removed the following day.
Those with the “turkey gobbler” appearance under their chin, or with separated bands, will require an incision underneath the chin to repair the platysma muscles. The separation and weakening of these muscles is often the root cause of this appearance and repairing and plicating these muscles can correct the deformity.
