Where is Male Facelift San Antonio surgery performed?
Male Facelift San Antonio patients may receive their cosmetic surgery as an outpatient surgery. Under local anesthesia in the office setting, a neck lift and chin implant can be placed. A deep plane or SMAS Facelift and Neck lift surgery may also be performed but usually with sedation or general anesthesia in a hospital setting.
What is involved in Male Facelift San Antonio surgery?
Male Facelift San Antonio Surgery involves making an incision in the neck to removed excess skin and fat. The skin can be removed and a liposuction canula placed to gently remove fat from under the chin. No other incisions are made in the neck except for the incision beneath the chin. Neck lift and chin implant surgery can also be performed at the same time and may involve platysma band treatment whereby prominent platysma bands are corsetted. The chin is then addressed by either placing a chin implant to project the chin, a prejowl chin implant to improve the prejowl sulcus and jaw line, or combination prejowl and chin implant. The Male Facelift San Antonio utilizes incisions around the ear to resuspend or lift up facial tissues that have descended with facial aging.
What is the difference between a neck lift and chin implant and a facelift?
A neck lift and chin implant utilizes a small neck incision to access and remove unwanted neck fat. A neck lift and chin implant is a type of mentoplasty whereby the chin and jaw line are better defined. It may be combined with a neck lift surgery to plicate platysma bands. A facelift involves an incision around the ear whereby the jowls of the lower face and the midface can be resuspended and elevated. Facelift surgery successfully repositions the SMAS (muscle and fat layer of the face) which has descended with aging. All of these neck surgery options can be combined or performed separately.
