WEEKEND NECK LIFT/RAPID NECKLIFT
Dr. Talei, a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon specializes in a large number of facial and neck rejuvenation procedures. He is able to customize treatments for his patients, ranging from the most advanced to the least invasive of procedures. For patients seeking a very rapid recovery and have specific concerns about their jawline, chin and neck, we offer the weekend neck lift.
What is a Weekend Neck Lift?
This is a combination of small procedures lasting around one hour. The entire procedure can be done under local anesthesia with no pain at all. The benefit of local anesthesia is less swelling and bruising, along with no downtime associated with twilight or general anesthesia.
The entire procedure is performed through a small, hidden incision under the chin. There are several combinations of treatments used to obtain outstanding outcomes depending on the patient’s anatomy and needs. The most common is chin augmentation followed by submental lipocontouring or liposuction. Either laser liposuction or traditional lipocontouring can be performed, depending on the neck type.
Which Patients are Good Candidates for a Weekend or Rapid Necklift?
This procedure is most suitable for patients coming in complaining of a “double chin”, mild “turkey neck” or simply, fat and fatness under the chin. It is especially helpful to patients bothered by the appearance of their under-chin and neck in photos, which may have worsened over the years.
What makes the results so significant is the addition of chin augmentation, which can help rejuvenate and refine the jawline in the appropriate patients. There are several methods of chin augmentation, which vary depending on the patient. The options can be temporary or permanent. They can even help lighten the jowls in patients with a pre-jowl sulcus or a shadow apparent.
