As we get older, a number of things can happen to us, one of the most obvious being sagging and loose skin around the neck and jaw line, and lack of muscle tone. This is a perfectly natural procedure but has the effect of making us look old even though we don’t feel old.
Gravity also has an effect, and unfortunately there is nothing that we can do about gravity. Many of us put on weight as well, and develop wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, nose, and forehead.
Now it is quite true that some people just accept it for what it is and carry on with life. However, for many people, knowing that they look that way can be very depressing, and they want to do something about it. In years gone by, there was not much that could be done at all, but today the answer may very well be neck lift surgery right here in San Francisco.
At Visage Medspa & Facial Plastic Surgery Center, our Dr. Alex Rabinovich has developed the Visage Neck Lift which is a great improvement on a traditional type of neck lift. This method is different from the traditional neck lift surgery in San Francisco in that it goes deeper under the muscle and slides it upwards into its’ original youthful position where it was before aging and gravity took over. The technique also has the advantage of resulting in a lot less swelling and bruising than with a traditional neck lift. The scars heal better and more quickly because there is no tension on superficial layers and skin.
A Great Improvement In Appearance
Most importantly, the result is a great improvement in appearance because the Visage Neck Lift produces a softer, and more natural look than the traditional neck lift which always has an appearance of tightness about it.
Dr. Rabinovich also uses tissue glues during the procedure rather than the older use of drains. This is what contributes to the faster healing times with less bruising and swelling and avoids the pain and discomfort that come with post-operative drains.
The procedure only take about two hours and it can be carried out using local anesthetic or twilight sedation instead of a general anesthetic. Furthermore, you should be able to return to work after two weeks and be able to wear your hair up, if you wish, within a few weeks without any scar being visible.
If the Visage Neck Lift surgery in San Francisco is the right procedure for you, make an appointment to see Dr. Rabinovich for a consultation.
