 Neck Lift San Antonio TX | Neck Lift

Whether it is a neck that is too full or has hanging skin (the dreaded 'turkey' neck), an unsightly neck can compromise an otherwise beautiful and attractive face. Dr. Albright will critically evaluate the problems needing to be corrected including abnormal fat deposits, separation and banding of the muscles of the neck, droopy salivary glands, or a weak/retracted chin. If you are considering neck rejuvenation, come in today to get a personalized treatment plan.

Neck Lift FAQ’s

Should I get a neck lift with or without a face lift?

A critical question. Most patients who are seeking significant changes to the neck will very likely also benefit from a lower facelift. The aging process that affects the neck has typically also occurred on the face. Additionally, combining the two procedures is technically convenient and patients will benefit from combining the operative recovery periods and operative costs.  For many patients, if they were to proceed with only neck rejuvenation, the result may be disharmonious with their overall facial appearance, and draw more attention to areas of the face that still appear aged such as hanging jowls.

Younger patients you may have fuller faces and still have relatively undamaged skin may benefit from isolated neck surgery such as liposuction with or without direct fat removal. There are also minimally invasive interventions that may improve these patient's necks.

What is the surgery like for a neck lift?

The surgical plan is dependent upon what cosmetic issues are present with the neck.  Dr. Albright performs these surgeries under general anesthesia, which requires a breathing tube be placed. Patients should be healthy enough for general anesthesia, and Dr. Albright will assess for this prior to offering surgery. Most patients go home the same day after surgery. At least one drain is typically placed with these surgeries. The drain will be removed within 3 days. Patients will be instructed on postoperative care before, and after surgery.

What is the recovery like for a necklift?

As a neck lift is very similar to and often combined with a facelift, the recovery is almost identical except for avoiding flexing and twisting of the neck in the immediate postoperative period. Bruising and swelling are the main issues after surgery and take time to natural resolve before your results can be seen.

Dr. Albright and his staff are extremely skilled and knowledge.
