Richard V. Balikian, MD, FACS, of Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery is proud to offer an age defying procedure called the necklift, efficiently and quickly from the comfort of his Temecula Plastic Surgery Center. This experienced, double board certified surgeon is renowned for his innovative facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as head and neck surgical techniques. A necklift is so named because it’s a quick procedure that can be done quite comfortably right in the office, taking just about an hour. Dr. Balikian is a renowned facial plastic surgeon who can perform necklift procedures very quickly with amazing results and little downtime.

Dr. Balikian achieves this via liposuction of the neck and face to restore the appearance of youth and vitality. Skin can begin to sag along the neck thanks to age and gravity. Dr. Balikian can perform a quick, safe neck liposuction procedure using local anesthesia. During your free, no-obligation consultation, he will assess the fat deposits under the chin and along the neckline and jawline to determine how extensive the procedure will be. As a board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Balikian only performs surgery on the face, priding himself on his expert advice, gentle bedside manner, and natural, youthful-looking results.

Mini-face lifts, full-face lifts, neck lifts and neck liposuction are all becoming increasing common, particularly with older adult women. According to theAmerican Society of Plastic Surgeons, both surgical and non-surgical procedures increased 20 percent in 2015. Facelifts in particular are growing in popularity, up six percent with 126,000 procedures performed.

Dr. Balikian grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from Columbia University in New York City. He went on to graduate from Boston University Medical School, where he was a member of the AOA Medical Honors Society. He then completed an internship in General Surgery, followed by four years of residency training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. Dr. Balikian was asked by one of the world’s top cosmetic facial surgeons to take part in a year of highly-specialized training, which is how he created his own private Facial Plastic Surgery practice.
