Dr. Balikian’s philosophy with all neck lift surgeries is for you to look like yourself, only better, without the signs of aging. You will look naturally lifted, and will not look pulled. Dr. Balikian has provided numerous women and men with beautiful results from their neck lift surgery in Temecula.


A neck lift can often be performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation, negating the need for general anesthesia.

A neck lift rejuvenates by reducing sagging skin, lifting and tightening weakened muscles of the neck, and removing excess fat underneath the skin, which will smooth out and improve wrinkles. During the procedure, the muscle may be loosened from the skin so that the muscles in the neck can be tightened. Loose neck skin will be removed, and the remaining neck skin will be stretched over the neck muscles so that the neck has a slimmer, smoother, and more youthful appearance.


You can expect to experience some swelling and bruising around the neck following your neck lift surgery. A compression garment may need to be worn during your recovery to help manage swelling and provide additional support throughout your recovery. Pain can typically be managed with medication. Our team will provide you with post-operative instructions that will help to make your neck lift recovery as easy as possible.

Neck lifts tighten the major weak neck muscles, remove bands running down the neck, creates a sharper chin-neck angle and take away excess skin.


The cost of your neck lift in Temecula can be discussed during your consultation at Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery. Double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Balikian can go over the expected price of your neck lift and answer any questions you may have about the payment and financing options we accept.

I was highly satisfied with my experience because of the results, the friendly staff, and Dr. Balikian.
There were results right away and I was in minimal pain. What made me feel special was the flowers that the staff and Dr. Balikian had got for me the day after surgery.
It immediately put a smile on my face!
