About Neck Lift Surgery
We’ve all heard descriptions of necks: She has the neck of a swan (long and elegant). That’s the neck of a fighter (thick and strong). His neck looks like a turkey’s (flabby, hanging). Visual, aren’t they? The neck should be an attractive, flowing passageway from the face and the head to the body--without many hills, valleys, and bumps along the route. The neck is an extension of the face in telling much about a person and his/her lifestyle. Aging and other negatives equally affect the face and the neck. We should treat the neck as gently as we treat the face. Therefore, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi performs neck lift surgery to bring dramatic improvement. At SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, we can help you shave off years of aging wrinkles through neck lift surgery.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"The best of the best... I wish there were more stars to add to his review, but if the five stars describe the best, then that would be Dr. Kelishadi. I have no words to describe the amazing job he's doing with every case. He is very patient, meticulous and never gives up until the smallest detail is taken care of. Thank you Dr Kelishadi for everything"- S.A. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2018
"There are not words to truly express how much I admire and trust Dr. Kelishadi. He is,without a doubt one in a million. He is compassionate, honest, professional and a perfectionist in his profession.. Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and with the help of my oncologist surgeon ( Dr. Kachikwu ) and Dr. Kelishadi I made the decision to have a mastectomy surgery and reconstruction surgery on the same day. The surgery went well, the tumor was entirely removed and I didn't need chemo or radiation. Dr. Kelishadi helped me to overcome the fear of having a mastectomy. He promised me he was going to treat me like he would a family member and he really did. I had a fast recovery and went back to work 6 weeks after my surgery. I feel blessed that god gave a second chance and the opportunity to met Dr.Kelishadi during my cancer journey. The results of my new breast are amazing! They are so natural looking that I don't even think of cancer anymore. I wish breast cancer on no one yet should you find yourself in need of a plastic surgeon, I pray that you will be able to see Dr. Kelishadi, he is amazing! And, his staff is very friendly and professional too. :)"- V.F. / Yelp / Apr 17, 2018

"For anyone that is looking to do something for themselves, no matter what the reason is, I would recommend SSK Plastic Surgery to anyone and everyone. I have been waiting to have cosmetic surgery for 5 years after having my 3rd child, and went to multiple offices and spoke to 4 other surgeons prior to meeting Dr. Kelishadi. Once I met with him, I felt comfortable and trusted him with my procedure. Dr. Kelishadi was thorough, knowledgable and patiently answered all of my questions. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation, and liposuction of the back and love handle areas with a fat transfer into my butt/hips. It was a 7.5 hour procedure that ended up being a little over 8 hours. His staff was extremely helpful with all of the paperwork and financing leading up to the day of surgery, and the hospital staff that Dr. K is contracted with was warm and caring. I was nervous about the procedure and my recovery, and Dr. Kelishadi personally made phone calls (even on Christmas Day because my surgery was just a few days before) to check in with me. I was able to reach him directly with any questions or concerns- the care and level of service far exceeds any I have ever had in the medical field.I am now a little over 3 months post-op and I feel amazing and am so happy with my results. SSK made this experience as easy as it could possibly be."- K.M. / Yelp / Mar 24, 2018
Whether aging progresses at a normal pace or begins early, it readily shows in the face and the neck. Major damage can be caused by:
- Decreasing levels of elastin and collagen, and the constant pull of gravity
- An unhealthy lifestyle (e.g., smoking, frequent frowning, insufficient rest and hydration, a poor diet, insufficient exercise to firm muscles and tissues)
- Environmental contributions (e.g., excessive sun exposure and insufficient sunscreen)
- People who exercise a great deal, and those who have a fast metabolism and are naturally lean, may have less volume and less support in their faces. This can translate into skin that needs to be firmed.
Frowning is a prime example of the wear and tear that occurs to your face and neck anatomy over time, with the constant muscle activation aiding gravity to pull your structures down, and less elastin and collagen to fight the stresses.
- Volume loss in the fat compartments of the face and redistribution of fat to areas that did not have it before, such as the jowls, adds to this droopy look associated with the aging phenomenon.
- When unfulfilled, failing definition and volume in the cheeks, jowls drooping from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), and failing definition in the jawline will be hastened and worsened when everything above is falling down.
- Also, a job or a bad habit that entails constant looking downward pushes down on the skin beneath the chin, which may compound a horizontal band of loose jowls.
Neck and facial skin and underlying structures need to be lifted, tightened, and smoothed. These problems should be corrected surgically, especially in the neck, where nonsurgical adjuncts (fillers, neurotoxins, skin-tightening treatments) are shortcuts that, when effective, are often short-term “band-aids.”
If you don’t want to wear turtlenecks around the clock to cover the ravages of time, especially in warm weather, you may consider a neck lift in the Orange County area, to reverse the clock. Worthwhile neck rejuvenation can be achieved through various types and levels of neck lift surgery here in Orange County. Trade your “turkey-neck” for the desirable swan neck through the stellar services and personalized attention of SSK Plastic Surgery. After that, it’ll be “Bye-bye, turtlenecks!” and “Hello, V-necks!” for you!
We have different procedures and techniques to match your lower or higher levels of need to repair damage. In our neck lift and facelift techniques, the deeper layers of facial tissue are re-suspended, age-related sagging is corrected, and a more-youthful shape is restored. The real advantage of the neck lift is the extensive improvements Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kelishadi will perform:
- To restore the jawline and a 90-degree angle between jaw and neck.
- Re-drape loose, sagging skin.
- Get rid of visible “platysmal” bands with platysmaplasty. Liposuction of the neck can also be considered in milder cases.
What To Expect
After your procedure, you will be wearing a neck-wrap dressing or a “jaw bra” when your designated driver takes you home. Normally, we will remove your surgical dressing the next day. Our efforts to reduce post-treatment inflammation via careful tissue handling will show in your short-term results. The additional advantages are a typical downtime of only 1 to 2 weeks and a natural look. Results will become obvious to you during the next 2 – 3 weeks as swelling resolves and the soft tissue takes on its new form. You may continue to see improvement over the next few months and can rejoice in a better-defined jawline and a younger look that we hope will last over the long term.
