Combatting the Cruel Burdens of Aging with a Transformative Neck Lift Surgery

While the anti-aging industry frequently focuses exclusively on the signs of maturity that affect the face, the neck receives less attention – until its crepe-like skin begins to sag and the once-tight muscles lose their elasticity. Then it becomes apparent that the region below the chin requires it own cosmetic intervention.

Our neck lift in San Diego surgery serves to reduce the unsightly banding, excess skin and fat that plagues the neck in order to create a more appealing, youthful aesthetic. Once the neck has accumulated fatty deposits, it’s unlikely that diet and exercise can turn things around, and often surgery is the only solution that will truly address the problem successfully.

After Your Procedure

After your treatment is over, Dr. Karam will supply drainage tubes to excise any excess fluids, and will also apply a light dressing to reduce swelling. This bandage will be worn for about 5-7 days.

For any pain or discomfort, Dr. Karam will prescribe medications. It’s normal to expect swelling, bruising, tenderness and redness for a few weeks after a surgery. Dr. Karam suggests that you sleep with your head slightly elevate, and that you get plenty of sleep to aid in your recuperation.

After about two weeks, you will be able to resume all your normal activities, including exercise, driving and working.

What is My Next Step?

During this initial session, the doctor will examine your neck, record your medical history, and answer all your questions in greater detail. He will cover such topics as financing, insurance and costs; risks and possible complications; recovery and downtime; and naturally, how he can achieve your most cherished results with a neck lift La Jolla has to offer.

"I had a vertical restore at age 65 with Dr Amir Karam. It has been a little over a year and I am delighted with the results. Some of my friends have not even noticed - I just look rested. Dr Karam will provide you with all the information and supplements that you need to make the procedure and the recovery time as comfortable as possible. I usually bruise very easily but with the supplements that were given to me prior to my procedure and afterwards, my bruises were gone within a week."

"I highly recommend Dr. Karam and would go back to him for anything I might want done in the future. I totally trust his approach and recommendations. You won't be disappointed!"

"I'm one month out from a Vertical Restore with Dr Karam. Dr Karam is an incredibly talented Surgeon. I can barely see my scars already. I also did a laser peel, within 8 days I was wearing makeup and admiring my new jawline and neck. I'm 65 this month and so happy I chose him. He is the best there is. His staff are fun, caring and kind. They made my entire experience so easy. I would not hesitate or even think about going anywhere else. Check out his Instagram account. He does all his content himself. Extremely informative, with many before and after photos. I decided on Dr Karam after researching his Instagram and had made my decision before we had even met."

"Dr Karam is a great surgeon, a true artist and a wonderful human being. He has done 2 procedures on me over the last 3 years. Both with excellent results. His fat transfer and his lip lift technique are extraordinary. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best."
