Scheduling a consultation is a crucial first step in choosing a plastic surgery. It allows your plastic surgeon to carefully assess your needs and discuss your expected results. Over the course of consultation, Dr. Omidi will help you decide whether a neck lift or a full facelift is right for you. For instance, if you find that the upper face needs no rejuvenation but observe visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck, he will ensure that the neck area matches the upper facial appearance. Specifically, a neck lift will eliminate excess fatty deposits under the chin, loose neck skin, surplus fat in the lower face, and muscle banding in the neck, which contributes to abnormal contours.
Dr. Omidi is known to dedicate a substantial amount of time to an in-person examination so as to better evaluate the imperfections in need of revision. A firm believer in building close personal rapport with patients prior to surgery, he insists on giving each prospective patient enough time to present reasons for requesting a neck lift and then going over every step involved in this procedure.
To ensure that surgery goes smoothly, Dr. Omidi will also instruct you to refrain from smoking and avoid certain medications that may increase the risk of bleeding. It is crucial to be completely honest during the consultation so that your surgeon may obtain sufficient information about your prior medical conditions or drug allergies. Such a careful and personalized approach to preparing the patient for the procedure ultimately pays off because it eliminates miscommunication and allows Dr. Omidi to effectively realize the patient’s vision of desired neck lift results.
