Hello Dr Naderi,
I am a 48 year old male – I recently lost about 25 lbs and have very low body fat, but developed loose skin on the neck.
1) Is there a chance that this will correct over time as the weight loss has been recent – I am in excellent heath, eat very healthy and excersize daily.
2) I noticed you have a special “mini neck lift” procedure, would it be practical for me to travel from California to see you or do you recommend colleagues in other parts of the country?
Thank you for your time and response.
At 48 it would be difficult to imagine the skin tightening on its own after weight loss. The proper management depends on the degree of laxity and its location. Neck lift is great when the skin excess is excessive, and Mini Neck lift (Submentoplasty) is great when the skin excess is mild to moderate. If you email me some pictures from the “contact us” section of this website, I will be glad to give you some suggestions. I have many patients that come from California, Florida, Midwest, Canada, & Europe. But, its always easier for patients to try to find a good plastic surgeon close to home.
