Beverly Hills Male Necklift Surgery
As the field of plastic surgery has grown, more men are seeking natural and masculine-appearing neck and facial rejuvenation surgery in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. Dr. Talei, the dual board certified facial plastic surgeon at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, has become a specialist in primary and revision neck lift and facelift surgery for men by primarily using the SMART deep plane neck lifting technique, among other procedures.
SMART Deep Plane Neck Lift
- Many surgeons encounter difficulty in the rejuvenation of the male face and neck, as the most commonly used techniques in women don’t work very well in men. Standard SMAS plication techniques typically fail to show any durable or noticeable natural change in the face or neck. This is due to the heavier quality of the tissues encountered in men. For this reason, Dr. Talei has developed and modified a technique much more suitable for men. It provides masculine, natural, superior and long-lasting results to both the face and neck, or just the neck alone.
- The SMART deep plane technique differs significantly from the majority of necklifts performed in the country. The most commonly used techniques alter the hair line, put significant amounts of tension on the skin, cause noticeable scarring around the ear and hairline and only temporarily pull the SMAS and platysma layers, solely using suture pull.
- The SMART deep plane technique is a vertical vector, modified and extended deep plane face and neck lifting procedure. It focuses much more on muscle and facial release than on skin pull. With this method, less dissection is performed directly under the skin and more is performed between the muscle layers. This allows for the most natural and effective repositioning of drooping and sagging tissues in the face and neck. Dr. Talei has the ability to use nearly any necklifting technique available today, but he almost always elects this technique because of the reliable, reproducible, durable and superior results achieved.
Grecian Urn Direct Neck Lift
- The Grecian urn neck lift is a direct neck lift performed using the combination of elliptical excisions resembling a Grecian urn or hourglass, platysmal muscle tightening, fat excision (as needed) and z-plasty techniques. This type of lift is most suitable for older men with heavy “turkey gobbler” necks. They desire a quick and easy fix for their neck drooping over their collar and drawing too much attention in photos. The procedure can easily be performed using local anesthesia and allows for a rapid recovery.
- The platysma muscle drapes from just over the jawline down over the collarbone. This is the muscle that envelops all the deeper structures of the neck and is also the main cause of banding in the neck. A platysmaplasty is a procedure that can easily be performed under local anesthesia in order to tighten the muscles in the neck and under the chin. If necessary, this can be combined with lateral or mid-line skin excision techniques to remove redundant skin. The result is a smoother, younger-looking neck and jawline with very little downtime.
Liposuction and Lipoplasty
- Liposuction under the chin and in the neck is a very quick and easy way to improve the neck, which may have developed a fatty or heavy appearance over the years. Tiny laparoscopic incisions are made in hidden areas, and micro cannulas are used to achieve the most natural results. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia. It can also be combined with a face or neck lift to provide more refinement of the neck and jawline.
