Aging skin can be a concern for both men and women. Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds tend to develop on the face after the age of 30, when natural collagen and elastin stores begin to deplete. Thanks to changes in the cosmetic field, patients have a variety of options to choose from when it comes to combating these imperfections, including surgical and nonsurgical solutions. However, for some patients with severe skin laxity, traditional procedures such as facelifts and neck lifts are still the most desirable option.
Cosmetic procedures with Dr. Jessica Belz
San Antonio, TX patients who work with Dr. Jessica Belz can consult with her to determine which procedure is best for them: the facelift or a neck lift.
- Facelift – the facelift is a common surgical procedure done with Dr. Jessica Belz that can be performed on patients that have moderate to severe signs of aging. The facelift improves the entire facial area by bringing in excess skin. The incision points are often made within the hair line and/or behind the ears to reduce visible scarring. Skin is pulled tight and any excess skin is removed before the area is sutured. The facelift will improve all areas of the face, including the forehead and midface regions.
- Neck lift – another solution is that of the neck lift. The neck lift procedure is used to address excess skin that develops underneath the chin and jowls. Even if a facelift is performed, it will not combat excess skin in the neck and décolletage area which can still show one’s age. A neck lift tightens the skin this area to give a youthful appearance while removing excess skin and reducing wrinkle formation. It can be done at the same time as a facelift if patients desire.
