Request Your Complimentary Consultation

You'll maybe miss a bit of work. You certainly won't miss the loose skin. And, no one has to know. Consider San Diego plastic surgeon Richard Chaffoo, MD, FACS, FICS — you can meet with him when you request your complimentary cosmetic consultation online.

That sagging skin under the chin — sometimes referred to as a "wattle" — can be the result of problem fat, weakened muscle, loose skin or a combination of all three conditions. It can also be a real pain in the neck, making it uncomfortable to wear the types of clothes and jewelry that you like. Thankfully, with a neck lift, this sagging skin can also be easily tightened in the process, providing a more defined jaw line. Many women and men having a neck lift combine this procedure with a face lift in order to full rejuvenate the appearance of their lower face.

The Benefits of a Neck Lift

Triple board certified La Jolla plastic surgeon Dr. Chaffoo has the experience and the expertise to help you achieve neck rejuvenation that's as natural looking as it is more youthful in appearance. At your complimentary consultation, he will share with you the options for producing a more aesthetically pleasing profile. He will also discuss in detail what to expect with a neck lift including:

  • Preparing for your surgery
  • Surgical technique specific to your anatomy
  • The size and location of incisions
  • Recovery, and
  • Risks associated with a neck lift

Here in San Diego, a neck lift is safe and effective at correcting a neck "wattle." The procedure takes just 2 to 3 hours, during which Dr. Chaffoo tightens the loose, sagging skin and muscles of the neck. Liposuction can take care of any problem fat, as well. Most patients are free to return to their normal activities within 1 to 2 weeks, although individual experiences vary.
