If your sagging neck and chin areas have a lot of excess skin, loose muscles, or skin with poor elasticity, you need proper medical assessment to determine what approach would be best for you. Wrinkled and sagging skin and weak neck muscles due to aging, or after significant weight loss, or a combination of different factors a neck lift and or face lift can significantly help to remove the fat and tighten the sagging in the neck and face areas.
Neck lift in San Antonio have many options. There are several options that we found work well with different individuals. Like any “problem,” the answer depends on the cause of the sagging. Many factors play a role in the development of a sagging chin and neck, including genetics, diet, exercise, drugs, the sun, and of course, the natural aging process. Luckily, there is a neck lift procedure to alleviate this all too common issue.
The Face Lift can help the sagging chin and neck, whether you are 40 or 70. The Face Lift does not just pull up the skin to tighten a few areas for a short time like the “quick or mini-lift,” or “Thread Lift” procedures. It is designed for each patient to be as “minimally invasive” as possible in order to avoid the significant scarring and long term recovery that occurs with the older, more aggressive neck lift techniques. The neck lift is done using oral and local anesthesia in our surgical OR. This makes the cost of the procedure more affordable and the recovery quicker for you.
In many people the best option for a sagging chin and neck is to have a “neck and face lift” procedure, what we call a Face Lift. An incision is made in the crease under the chin to deal with the sagging chin and neck. A second incision is made in the natural creases of the face along the hairline, the front of the ear, and around the earlobes. When using this procedure the excessive neck skin and fat are removed more completely, and the underlying neck muscles are tightened across the entire neck, not just the front. This technique is better for most people in helping to define the jaw line, tighten the neck, and tighten the jowl regions.
Sometimes it is just “the family trait” giving even a relatively young person that extra fat or hanging neck. If this is the case and there is not a large amount of fat the Smart lipo procedure may be right for you. A small incision hidden in the crease under the chin can be used to laser and then liposuction the melted fat away. In someone with a fairly large amount of fat it might be necessary to use a slightly larger incision hidden in the crease under the chin to make sure all the fat is removed and to tighten the neck muscles.
