The Beverly Hills Neck Lift

A necklift in Beverly Hills can help enhance one's appearance as well as provide a boost to one's self-confidence and self-esteem.

There are many reasons why one would want to enhance the appearance of their neck. Some individuals may possess loose, hanging skin in the neck area and under the jawline. These conditions can present the appearance of a fleshy neck or a turkey neck.

Necklift Procedure

The necklift is a procedure to tighten and better define the jawline and the areas below it. In some instances, this effect can reach all the way down to the collar bones. It is generally included as part of a facelift, but can be performed as a separate, independent procedure, if the face does not need any tightening. The operation may involve liposuction, as well as suture tightening and/or suspension of the neck muscles. The incisions are inconspicuous and are below the chin and behind the ears.

The procedure can be performed under intravenous sedation (twilight sleep) or under general anesthesia. Depending on the deformity to be corrected, excess tissue (muscle, fat or glandular) may need to be removed, and the entire area under the jawline tightened. Overnight drains are occasionally placed depending on the degree of surgical dissection. Finally, a removable chin strap may also be used for several days to further help define the neck and reduce swelling. A necklift can be performed alone, or as part of a facelift operation. Liposuction may also be combined if any excess fat needs to be removed from the neck region. A necklift is available at the Beverly Hills cosmetic surgery practice of Dr. Stephen J. Pincus.

The Telltale Signs of a Bad Rhinoplasty

Having revised thousands of rhinoplasties, I have noticed certain features common to all.

Even a structurally symmetric, aesthetically pleasing nose can be a poor result if it is out of proportion with the other facial features by being too small or too large. However, the real clues to a poor result are the asymmetries, malpositions, disproportions and decreased function that are seen. We can see collapse of the side walls and/or nostrils producing a “pinched look” or asymmetry between the two sides. The bridge can be too low or too high, and the tip can be overly rotated or not rotated enough. There can be too much “nostril show” from aggressive cartilage resection causing upward migration of the nostril rims. Or too much nostril show from failure to raise the columella (area between the nostrils). Also, irregularities or distortions in the nasal tip can occur which can present technical challenges to the revision surgeon. There can be deflections or angulations of the tip or the entire nose. As mentioned above, nostril asymmetries are particularly common with one nostril appearing higher or wider than its companion. Finally, there can be a worsening of breathing , especially if a reductive rhinoplasty was performed. Making a nose smaller has to be accompanied, many times, by measures to assure that the airflow is not compromised. This means correcting any septal deviations and/or turbinate enlargement, as well as maintaining adequate openings through the nostrils and the areas above called the internal valves. I’ve included photos of a nose showing most of these deformities with the subsequent post-operative results, after I corrected them.
