About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you wearing scarves or turtlenecks the whole year to conceal the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia performs neck lift surgery to improve the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery tightens the area under your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a turkey neck or double chin. By taking away the loose skin and fat while incorporating a tightening technique to produce a smoother, natural neckline, this lower facial surgery at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery can provide significant improvements to the lower half of your face.
Men and women desiring neck lift treatment generally battle visibly loose skin along the neckline. Neck skin that hangs is usually caused by numerous factors including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Whatever the reason may be, hanging neck skin causes an unbecoming look, which generally can only be addressed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If your weight is stable but you feel frustrated by lines, wrinkles, and hanging skin along the neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great answer.

"A wonderful surgeon and person! - I am so glad that I found Dr Movagharnia! I rarely write reviews, but I had to do this one. The decision to go under the knife can be an extremely scary and difficult one. I want to share that I have had a wonderful, life-changing experience with Dr Movagharnia. I went to him for help with a botched surgery outcome at the hands of another well-known Atlanta surgeon. My experience with him has been nothing short of redeeming and therapeutic. Dr Movagharnia is not only a skilled surgeon, but a genuinely caring, gentle, and hard-working person. During my consultation and preparatory appointments, Dr Movagharnia went to great lengths to ensure that he understood what I hoped for, and that I understood what my options were and what he could do. He shared his expertise honestly so that I could make informed decisions. He went over my chosen procedures in detail, letting me in on every decision that I had previously been excluded from. I’m happy with the transformation that is happening for me, and to know that this was done by Dr Movagharnia! He has truly partnered with me throughout this process. My recovery from the surgery was so much easier than I anticipated, and from experience, I know to attribute this to his gentle precision in the operating room. I was off my pain medication in one week. His sutures were actually beautiful. He followed up to make sure I was doing well after surgery, even over the weekend and after hours. The people working in the office are such friendly, kind people too! Judy responds to every email or call within one day. I feel cared for, and went under anesthesia knowing I was in good hands. I’ve been treated with such kind attention and am so appreciative. Though I’m still healing and my final results will not be evident for another 2-3 months, I’m already amazed and excited! Dr Movagharnia takes pride in his artistry and his ethic, loves what he does, and empowers his patients before and after surgery with information, with proper preparation, and with post-surgery exercises to facilitate healing and best result. He wants his patients to feel proud and be happy and healthy. He has been here for me every step of the way and sincerely wants to make sure we achieve the best possible result. I have had every question or concern immediately addressed. It is critical to be in the care of someone skilled and compassionate. I recommend Dr Movagharnia. He is exactly the kind of doctor I want my family and friends to see."- S.A. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 2019
"Exceeded my Tummy Tuck Expectations Totally! - I am totally satisfied with my results from Dr. Fara!! I had TT, MR, 2hernia repair and lipo to sides. He was my 1st consultation of 4 consults. I knew he was the right surgeon for me. Never once did he inquire about my weight. He looked at me and told me what he could do and never did i imagine my results would be this awesome. I am 28 days po and everything has gone so smoothly. At my 1st consult i weighed 227lbs in May 2019. I was 215lbs at the time of surgery on Oct 9 2019. Im down to 207 post op. Im at a loss for words. My stomach looks better now than it did prior to my pregnancies. Im 47 with 2 kids ages 22 and 27. I recommend Dr. Fara Movagharnia 100%!"- C. / RealSelf / Nov 05, 2019
"I look 25 again, body wise - "First and foremost, I want to say to any and everyone who listens, you will NEVER find a better Doctor than Fara Movagharnia."

From the beginning to the end and even now 2 weeks after my surgery they're still engaged in my well being, mental and physical. I'm very pleased with my outcome and results, I look 25 again, body wise. LOL!"- 1. / RealSelf / Nov 05, 2019
During a neck lift procedure, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed around your ears, while another one may also be made underneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, fat removal with liposuction would be completed first. Next, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is conducted until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness have been achieved. Even though sutures are used to close the incision, scars should not be visibly seen since they are located beneath your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection such as Kybella may be incorporated to complement the results. Furthermore, other nonsurgical alternatives can help the skin's surface to produce a soft and smooth appearance.
What to Expect
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away within a week or two. It's important to rest and eliminate high-impact activity for several weeks to assist in the healing period. While recovering, fitted tops should be avoided. You should notice visible outcomes almost immediately. In addition, it has been stated that the neck lift surgery can make one of the most significant improvements to a individual's profile, taking a decade off your appearance.
