Revision Necklift Before & Afters
Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has performed revision neck lift surgery for over 15 years. Here are photos to illustrate how Dr. Azizzadeh has helped revision neck lift patients accomplish their treatment goals.
What is a Revision Neck Lift?
A revision neck lift corrects the results of a past neck lift. Patients often request neck lift surgery to treat loose skin and excess muscle and tissue in the neck. However, if too much or not enough skin was removed during a neck lift, the final result is a distorted neck appearance. Perhaps worst of all, this procedure also results in an unnatural facial appearance.
At the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. Azizzadeh tailors a revision neck lift to his patient. Dr. Azizzadeh wants a revision neck lift to bring harmony to the neck and face. He understands a revision neck lift is a complex procedure, and as such, evaluates a patient prior to surgery. Dr. Azizzadeh then works with his revision neck lift patient to correct the unsatisfactory results of a past neck lift procedure.
What Are the Benefits of Revision Neck Lift Surgery?
Revision neck lift surgery benefits include:
- Reduced jowling and facial drooping
- Tighter facial muscles
- Enhanced neck and face symmetry
Dr. Azizzadeh is a top-rated Los Angeles facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who educates a patient about revision neck lift surgery before treatment. He explains how the surgery is performed and outlines the treatment benefits. If Dr. Azizzadeh believes revision neck lift surgery can help a patient achieve a natural-looking facial appearance, he then develops a custom treatment plan for him or her.
Am I a Candidate for a Revision Neck Lift?
Neck lift surgery results typically last 10 years or longer. If neck lift surgery results fade after treatment or the procedure fails to deliver the desired results, a revision neck lift is available.
Dr. Azizzadeh generally treats revision neck lift patients who display one or more of the following skin issues in the neck and face:
- Fat deposits and buildup
- Muscle and/or skin laxity
- Sub-muscular laxity
Dr. Azizzadeh also meets with a patient to determine if he or she is a good candidate for revision neck lift surgery. He analyzes a patient’s neck and facial features and finds out why this individual wants to undergo neck lift surgery. Dr. Azizzadeh also reviews a patient’s medical and surgery history.
If a patient qualifies for revision neck lift surgery, Dr. Azizzadeh next develops a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Azizzadeh believes there is no such thing as a “standard” revision neck lift procedure. Therefore, Dr. Azizzadeh develops a custom revision neck lift treatment plan designed to deliver long-lasting results.
Dr. Azizzadeh offers two types of revision neck lift procedures: skin-SMAS-platysma lift and platysmaplasty. During a skin-SMAS-platysma lift, Dr. Azizzadeh lifts and tightens the neck skin. Meanwhile, during a platysmaplasty, Dr. Azizzadeh treats underlying muscles in the neck (platysma muscles) to produce a tight, youthful-looking neckline.
The decision to perform a skin-SMAS-platysma lift or platysmaplasty varies based on the revision neck lift patient. Thanks to the consultation process, Dr. Azizzadeh can gain the insights he needs to offer a personalized revision neck lift recommendation to each of his patients.
Revision Neck Lift Recovery Process
Revision neck lift surgery patients sometimes experience swelling and bruising after treatment. In certain instances, Dr. Azizzadeh prescribes medications to help revision neck lift patients reduce their post-surgery pain.
Dr. Azizzadeh recommends revision neck patients wait a few weeks after surgery before they engage in strenuous activity or exercise. In most cases, patients can resume their everyday activities approximately two weeks after a revision neck lift.
Also, Dr. Azizzadeh provides detailed instructions to help revision neck lift patients achieve the best-possible results. These instructions include:
- Clean surgical incisions with hydrogen peroxide once a day for the first week after treatment.
- Apply antibiotic ointment to surgical incisions three times a day immediately following treatment.
- Wear a chinstrap garment for the first week after surgery; this garment should be worn as frequently as possible. If the chinstrap garment irritates the skin, remove the garment and contact Dr. Azizzadeh.
- Use a cold compress for approximately 20 minutes per hour when awake for the first three days after surgery. A revision neck lift patient should also use a warm compress for 20 minutes per hours at least three times per day on any bruised areas.
- Keep the head elevated as much as possible in the first week after treatment.
- Remove the compression garment to shower starting two days after treatment.
Dr. Azizzadeh wants each revision neck lift patient to experience a smooth recovery. He requests follow-up appointments throughout the revision neck lift surgery cycle to monitor a patient’s progress. If a patient has concerns or questions about revision neck lift recovery, Dr. Azizzadeh is happy to respond to them, too.
