Where is Turkey Neck facelift surgery performed?
Turkey Neck San Antonio patients may receive their cosmetic surgery as an outpatient surgery. Most Turkey Neck San Antonio patients require a facelift with submentoplasty to address their excessive neck skin. 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 Turkey Neck surgery?
Turkey Neck surgery is a type of Facelift Surgery that Dr. Barrera specializes in. It 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. The Turkey Neck San Antonio surgery utilizes incisions around the ear to resuspend or lift up facial tissues that have descended with facial aging.

What is the difference between a Turkey Neck Lift and a facelift?
A Turkey Neck Lift utilizes the same incisions as a facelift. 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. Liposuction of the neck and platysmaplasty is often performed in the same procedure.
