Your Path to a Sculpted and Defined Neck and Jawline


By utilizing one or more of the above procedures, you can achieve a more refreshed and youthful look without any obvious signs you had surgery or a procedure. Dr. Richland strives to deliver the best neck lift Newport Beach has to offer. Even better, many neck contouring procedures can be performed in the office with minimal downtime and recovery. Neck contouring refers to a group of procedures that may be used to help restore and rejuvenate one’s neckline, chin, or jawline. Depending on your goals, age, and amount of excess skin, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richland may recommend one or more of the following procedures:

  • Neck/chin liposuction
  • Chin and jawline sculpting injections
  • Botox to help reduce neck bands
  • Kybella to help remove neck and chin fat
  • A neck lift, with or without a facelift
  • The most powerful RF minimally invasive skin tightening treatment, Renuvion
Newport Beach neck lift surgeon Dr. Brandon Richland


Exploring Your Candidacy

Dr. Richland offers a variety of neck lift procedures to suit each patient’s unique needs. Generally speaking, neck lift procedures are ideal for patients experiencing such concerns as:

  • Lose or saggy neck skin
  • Neck or platysmal banding
  • Lack of a defined jawline or neckline
  • Wrinkly or “crepey” neck skin
  • Excess neck fat, chin fat, or submental fat
  • A “double chin” or “turkey neck”
  • Visible signs of aging in the lower 1/3 of the face and neck




While liposuction is most commonly combined with Renuvion or other skin tightening treatments, in some instances, it may be performed alone in patients who just have isolated chin or neck fat without excess skin.

Chin and Jawline Sculpting Injections

Dr. Richland uses his meticulous technique and training to help redefine your chin and jawline by using injectables. This technique is great for patients who would like to strengthen their jawline and who would like to minimize “jowls”.

Botox to Help Reduce Neck Bands

Patients with neck bands or platysmal bands can have these softened with the use of botox.

Kybella to Help Remove Neck and Chin Fat

The injectable product, Kybella (deoxycholic acid), can be used to melt away fat from the chin or submental area. Because it is an injection, multiple treatments will be required. However, the results are long-lasting.

PDO Threads to Rejuvenate your Face and Neck

Thread lifts are a great minimally invasive option if you are looking to rejuvenate and lift your face and neck without surgery. Dr. Richland utilizes an advanced combination of the newest PDO, PLLA, and PCL threads depending on your discussion and goals for the procedure.

Neck Lift

A neck lift is considered the gold standard in neck contouring and is the most powerful procedure to help rejuvenate and recontour the neck and jawline. While it is a surgical procedure, it can be performed in the office under local anesthesia with the patient awake. Additionally, Dr. Richland commonly performs a “platysmaplasty” to further tighten and refine the neck and jawline. Some of our Newport Beach neck lift patients with facial sagging skin or “jowls” may also additionally want to combine their procedure with a facelift to produce dramatic results.

Renuvion Neck Tightening with or without Liposuction

This is Dr. Richland’s preferred treatment for neck contouring and skin tightening in patients with early signs of loose, wrinkly, or crepey neck skin. This one-time minimally invasive treatment leaves long-term dramatic results and can easily be performed in the office.

The best candidates for Renuvion skin rejuvenation and neck tightening are patients in their 30s to 50s who have mild to moderate skin laxity but aren’t quite ready for a full facelift or wish to avoid facelift incisions. Patients who have had a previous neck lift and just need a touch-up would greatly benefit from a Renuvion neck tightening treatment as well.

Your recovery is dependent on the procedure performed.

If you had an injectable product used, such as filler, Botox, or Kybella, the downtime is minimal. You can return to your usual activities the next day. While the swelling and bruising is usually very minimal, it may last up to several weeks in some cases. Following Renuvion minimally invasive neck tightening treatment or liposuction, the recovery and downtime are also minimal, but slightly longer than for the injectable products. You will be placed in a soft jaw wrap that will be worn at all times for two to four weeks. The swelling and bruising will last several weeks. After several days of limited activity, you will be able to return to work and your usual routine in about a week. The results are immediately noticeable and will continue to improve over the next three to six months. If you had a surgical neck lift, you will be placed in a soft jaw wrap that will be worn at all times for two to four weeks. The swelling and bruising will last several weeks. After five to seven days of limited activity, you will be able to increase activity and return to work in another one to two weeks. For our Newport Beach neck lift patients, results are immediately noticeable and will continue to improve as the swelling subsides over the next several months.

Huntington Beach neck lift surgeon Dr. Brandon Richland


Neck contouring refers to a group of procedures that can be used to create a firmer, smoother, and more refined neck and jawline. You may wish to improve in loose, wrinkly, or saggy neck skin, redefine your jawline, or remove excess chin or neck fat. Neck contouring can usually be accomplished in the office with the patient awake and with minimal downtime depending on the procedure(s) performed.

The non-surgical options range from Botox, fillers, and Kybella to the most powerful minimally invasive RF neck tightening treatment, Renuvion. A one time Renuvion treatment, with or without liposuction, is a great option for younger patients in their 30s to 50s who are just looking for a little neck tightening and wish to avoid an entire neck lift or facelift surgery.

Absolutely! Many neck contouring procedures can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. A neck lift can be performed in the office or in an operating room depending on your preference and discussion with Dr. Richland.
