Why a Healthy Lifestyle Change Should Precede Cosmetic Surgery & How it Can Help Future Procedures


What Can I Do to Fix my Neck, is It Simply
a Matter of Losing Weight? I’m not fat but I could probably lose 10-15
lbs. Would this reduce my neck sag? I am 35. I find myself elongating my neck and turning
my head to a slight angle in all my pictures to eliminate this sag in pictures. I’m starting
to become very self conscious whereas only 2 yrs ago, I had no concerns. An older friend
of mine suggested hemorrhoid cream to tighten up the skin. Thank you for your question. You’re 35 years
old and although you’re not fat, you do feel like you could lose 10 to 15 pounds. And that
you are doing these various maneuvers to elongate your neck in order to hide some of the areas
that you have shown in your photos under your chin and things that make you look somewhat
older. And your friend gave you some advice using hemorrhoids cream. So let’s explore
this a little bit. You’re 35 years old that puts you in our practice in the area known
as, young, and which means that you are not really a facial aging issue specifically. Few years ago I wrote a book called the Fine
Art of Looking Younger and genetically there are certainly people will have fat under their
chin. In our practice we have done limited liposculpture on people who are athletes because
no matter how much they work out they have this problem area. But someone like yourself,
and you feel that you have 10-15 pounds to lose then my first line of advice would be
is adopt a healthier lifestyle to the point where you can lose this 10-15 pounds. Incorporate
athletic activities so that you can optimize your physical weight and the proportion of
body fat. Once you have achieve this, you may still have a problem area but it is always
more straight forward to be able to sculpt a problem area in someone who is at least
within a few pounds of their ideal body weight . I happen to also be boarded in body breast
and extremities surgery so I do a fair amount of liposculpture and in my practice. I don’t
do liposculpture on obese people. I do liposculpture on people who are maximizing their fitness
to the point they plateau and they have limited areas. For example for women, it would be
in the bra role area or in the flank area or in the adjacent of the hip or in men is
the love handle area. So there is a lot to having facial youthful appearance that is
in the continuum of a healthy body. So I would always advise a lifestyle shift you know if
you are 10-15 pounds overweight and at 35 think about the trajectory you are on by the
time your 40 if you don’t make any change so that’s more of a holistic general medical
advice for you if that’s helpful. Once you do that, I would suggest that you
would do some liposculpture to help define your jaw line and maybe the under the chin
area. Clearly you are not ready for a facelift as far as the advice about the hemorrhoid
cream, I don’t think that’s going to make a difference. So I think that basically taking
care of yourself and maybe doing a little bit of liposculpture would probably be the
solution that will ultimately help you sum up my thoughts. So I wish you the best of luck, I hope that
was helpful and thank you for your question.
