Neck lifts are performed all around the world. an Antonio is a hot spot for BOTOX®, breast augmentation, and neck rejuvenation treatments, and Dr. Jeneby is the go-to plastic surgeon in the area for all things plastic surgery-related.
What Does a Neck Lift Entail?
The surgeon aims to tighten the neck muscles and smooth out the skin. The muscles undergo augmentation and the overlying excess skin is removed. In rare cases, liposuction helps to get rid of excess fat. The types of neck lifts vary, and the best one for you will depend on a number of factors.
What is the Recovery Like?
The typical advice following neck lifts is to avoid damage by preventing strain with excessive twisting or turning. This means workouts are strongly discouraged for a set amount of time after the procedure.
Are the Results Permanent?
A permanent beauty solution will inevitably be the greatest invention in the beauty industry. Unfortunately, aging is a blessing with unwarranted expectations. A neck lift typically lasts up to a decade, which is a good bargain in old age.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Luckily, most people who are interested in neck lifts qualify for the procedure. Good candidates may have:
- Wrinkles on the neck
- Loose neck skin
- Loose neck muscles
- A double chin
- Excessive skin on the neck and chin
Patients sometimes combine a neck lift with other procedures. A good practitioner in San Antonio will advise on the possibility of the combination. A neck lift is not designed to slash back 20 years from your appearance, but it can instead make you look alert and well-rested. For more information, contact us today at the office of Thomas T.
