Non-invasive Neck plastic surgery
In today’s modern society, many people compulsively glance down at their smartphones and tablets numerous times per day. Due to the repetitive nature of this movement necks around the world are paying the price, and quickly becoming a primary focus when it comes to cosmetic procedures.
Video chatting also plays a large impact on how we few the neck area. Due to programs like FaceTime and Skype, we are becoming much more aware of our appearance compared to previous generations. “Tech-neck” is a new term catching on in the industry to describe double chins and neck wrinkles caused by spending so much time looking down at our handheld devices.
68 percent of the population is estimated to be unsatisfied with their neck and chin fat situation, and many folks are looking for a procedure with little downtime to improve their appearance in these areas. With a Mini-Necklift there is very minimal downtime, lower risk of unsightly scarring, no general anesthesia, and it tends to be more cost-effective when compared to conventional facelifts. During a Mini-Necklift fat is liposuctioned out of the cheek, chin, and jowl areas of the face and the platysma muscle is tightened to help cope with the loss of skin elasticity. This differs from conventional procedures because no incisions are typically made by the ears. This subtle tightening and reshaping of the chin result in a more natural and less surgical appearance when compared to standard neck lifts. Best candidates for a Mini-Necklift are those who have a “turkey-wattle” appearance on their neck.
