Neck Lift Surgery in Oakland
Looking to bring back some youthful firmness and tightness to the skin on your neck? Then you could be an ideal candidate for neck lift surgery.
Neck skin is one of the parts of the body most affected by the aging process. Sagging muscles, loose skin, and stubborn fat deposits make the neck appear to sag and droop, often before other signs of aging are visible. As another unwanted result, a sagging neck can make you appear heavier than you really are.
But hope is not lost. Your neck can be rejuvenated and made to look – and feel – years younger than your actual age through an expertly done neck lift surgery.
What is neck lift surgery?
Neck lift surgery can be performed in isolation or in addition to other facial surgery procedures. Experienced Oakland neck lift surgeon Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis recommend the isolated neck lift for people with early to moderate laxity in the skin of the neck. This skin laxity often results in the formation of vertical bands, caused by sagging neck muscles.
If other signs of facial aging are beginning to develop, such as the appearance of jowls, you may benefit from other procedures, such as a mini-facelift, limited incision facelift, or a standard facelift, to restore a youthful appearance to your entire face.
Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis perform the neck lift surgery under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis make small, precise incisions under the chin, through which they tighten the muscles in the neck and continues to re-sculpt the neckline by removing excess fat and tightening sagging skin. If there is a moderate amount of skin laxity, they may also make incisions behind the ears – another hard-to-spot place to re-drape excess neck skin.
When all is said and done, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis’s neck lift surgery patients will leave their clinic with a dramatically rejuvenated neck contour and profile, and feel better about their appearance.

Usually, by the time one is aware of aging changes in the neck (sagging skin, neck bands, etc.), subtle changes in the face have already occurred – hallowing around the eyes, loss of cheek volume, prominent nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and early jowling.
To rejuvenate these areas, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis offer a fat grafting procedure, which helps to restores volume loss around the eye area, temples, and cheeks. And there’s also the option of cosmetic eyelid surgery and forehead lifts. These are popular techniques to correct sagging skin around the eyelids and repair drooping brows.
