For some people, the skin around their neck begins to sag because it’s a family thing, and genetics has caused it to happen. For others, it is the result of excessive weight loss which leaves them with excess skin around their face.
And for many more people, it is simply an undesirable side effect of getting older and time and gravity taking its toll on their bodies. No matter what a person’s reason might be, people in Mission Viejo are quickly realizing that a neck lift is the best cosmetic option to make sure their neck does not resemble that of a turkey’s wattle.
As a board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Sadati knows the importance of achieving a uniform and natural look across the entire face of every patient.
With this in mind, he notes that most patients will require additional procedures such as a facelift when they are considering this particular procedure. This is to ensure that the skin near the ears does not start bunching. This procedure on its own might take between two and three hours to complete, but if other procedures such as a facelift or brow lift are also being completed it could take longer.
Anyone considering cosmetic surgery should not only be in good physical health but also be in good mental health as well. The average patient for this procedure is between 40 and 70 years old. Some patients who are genetically predisposed to this condition may opt to have the procedure performed at an even younger age, especially if they feel it is truly impacting their overall body image. Dr. Sadati is ready and willing to help you decide if this is the right path for you to take in order to look your best. Set up your free consultation today.
