One day, a person might look in the mirror and realize that they look old. This is often discouraging and disappointing, especially when that same person still feels young at heart. One of the most frustrating signs of aging for people is the appearance of a double chin, which can be caused by sagging skin around the jowls and the neck. This double chin makes the face appear much older than it really is, and it can be a difficult problem area to target utilizing diet and exercise. For patients who want to correct this issue once and for all, Dr. Kevin Sadati offers the neck lift procedure.
This is becoming an increasingly popular procedure at his Newport Beach practice, which is frequented by residents from all across Orange County. This procedure specifically targets this difficult area, removing excess skin and in turn rejuvenating the appearance of the face. In order to understand this surgery, patients need to understand that the surgeon will actually be performing two procedures on them. The neck lift consists of the cervicoplasty and the platysmaplasty. The cervicoplasty procedure removes the excess skin around the neck. The platysmaplasty procedure alters and tightens the neck muscles to achieve the final result. Most patients who opt to have a neck lift have a facelift performed at the same time to prevent bunching of the skin around the earlobes.
Most patients who come to Dr. Sadati requesting this procedure are between the ages of 40 years old and 70 years old. Occasionally, a patient who is genetically predisposed to the double chin will come to Dr. Sadati in his or her 30s. The ideal candidate is not only in optimum physical health but also optimum mental health. It is important that patients understand they need to have realistic expectations of surgical results. The neck lift itself takes about 2 hours to perform, but as most patients have other cosmetic improvements done at the same time, the total surgery time varies greatly depending on the patient.
