“Turkey neck” is a common term people use for sagging neck skin. It happens as we age, and can vary in appearance, but in some people, it can be really bad.
This can have other results as well, not just the physical appearance. Many people here in San Francisco become depressed because they have lost that youthful appearance, and they don’t feel comfortable with other people seeing them. In the worst cases, it can actually lead to people trying to avoid going out just so that nobody can see what they look like.
However, today, there is no need to suffer the embarrassment of “turkey neck” and sagging skin. It can be removed, and that youthful appearance restored by “turkey neck” and facial surgery in San Francisco.
The “Visage Lift”
Here at Visage Medspa & Facial Plastic Surgery Center, our Dr. Alex Rabinovich has developed a special procedure for “turkey neck” and facial surgery in San Francisco and it is known as the Visage Lift. Dr. Rabinovich is a highly skilled facial cosmetic surgeon whose sub-specialty is neck lift and facelift surgery. He is one of only a very few surgeons in San Francisco with these skills.
The Visage Lift has been developed for “turkey neck” and facial surgery in San Francisco and it goes deeper under the muscle than traditional techniques, which means that it slides the muscle back upwards into its’ original position. Once the deeper tissue is lifted, the excess skin is trimmed away. The result is that your neck and facial tissue have a softer, smoother, and more natural appearance with none of the tightness that is apparent with the traditional method.
In addition, while there is still a certain amount of bruising and swelling, there is far less than with the traditional procedure and the scars heal faster and better because there is no tension on the superficial layers and the skin. The Visage Lift also incorporates the use of tissue glues as opposed to the older methods of drains, and this helps to provide faster healing and eliminates the pain and discomfort of post-operative drains. On top of that, Dr. Rabinovich prescribes the use of post-operative vitamins and herbal supplements in order to speed up the recovery time.
In addition, there is no need for general anesthesia, as the procedure can be performed under local anesthetic or twilight sedation in around two hours. Most patients are able to go back to work within a couple of weeks.
