We invite you to contact us to schedule your consultation and learn more about gaining beautiful results with a neck lift.
"Dr.Ahmed got skills!! I could not be happier with the results of my tummy tuck and lipo. He gave me back my pre baby body, and then some! I went on 5 consultations prior to him. A few minutes into my consultation with Dr.Ahmed I knew he was the one. He is honest, and didn’t try to sell me up on procedures like other plastic surgeons I saw previously. He listened and answered my questions patiently and explained in great detail what my procedure would be like. No one else took that kind of time. Surgery day was calm and his staff is super friendly and caring. After surgery he was always available to answer my questions and making appointments with his staff was easy and they worked with my crazy schedule every time. Dr.Ahmed has changed my life and I am forever grateful. I recommend him to everyone I know."- P. / Healthgrades / Sep 14, 2020
"Dr. Omar Ahmed is a highly skilled and talented surgeon. He is honest, down to earth, and his bedside manner is excellent. I had a tummy tuck, 360 lipo and a BBL. It was a transformation beyond my expectations. I am extremely happy with the results, and recommended him to anyone and everyone I know who wants cosmetic surgery. I will be returning to him for a breast augmentation in 6 months. Thanks Doc, you changed my life!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Aug 05, 2020
"Dr. Ahmed is extremely kind and very informative. He's considerate and always attentive to my mom's needs and concerns. My mom has had several surgeries and had no complications whatsoever. I appreciate his direct approach and his willingness to answer all my questions. My mom says she always feels safe with him. Highly recommend him and his staff. His assistant Angelina is a delight to work with. We wish you all the best, Robin Appleby and Barbara Curry."- R.A. / Google / Sep 08, 2019
"In February 2018, I tumbled down the stairs of my office building. I sustained a four-inch gash in my head that bled profusely. I was sent to Methodist Hospital in Arcadia. They called Dr Ahmed to stitch up my head. My Blue Shield PPO did not want to pay his bill of $7,000, which I thought was very reasonable, given the very skillful job he did, but they paid the ER Doctor’s $5,000 bill. Dr Ahmed was the only doctor that I saw that day, despite a bad concussion."- J.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2019
Ideal Candidates for Neck Lift
Men and women seeking neck lift treatment generally have visibly loose skin in the neck region. Hanging neck skin is often caused by several factors, including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Whatever the reason may be, sagging neck skin causes an unflattering look, which in most cases can only be addressed with skin removal and tightening. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight, but you feel frustrated by lines, wrinkles, and loose skin on the neck, neck lift surgery may be a great option.
How neck Lift Is Performed
During a neck lift procedure, general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed just in front or behind your ears, and another one may also be made beneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, a form of liposuction would be completed first. Following that, any loose skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is conducted until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness have been attained. Even though sutures are used, scarring should not be seen since they were placed beneath your chin.
What to Expect with Neck Lift
After neck lift surgery, there will likely be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will go away with each passing day. You should rest and try to avoid strenuous activity for a couple of weeks to assist in the recovery. While recovering, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should notice visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In fact, it has been stated that the neck lift surgery can make one of the biggest enhancements to a person's profile, turning back the hands of time on their appearance.
Plan Your Procedure
Finally rid your "turkey neck" look and attain the firm and smooth neck you dream about. If you are tired of feeling self-conscious about hanging skin on your neck, please contact Omar Ahmed, M.D. in Pasadena, CA to learn more about neck lift treatment by Dr. Ahmed.
