Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
According to a recent article, social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter as well as video chatting services FaceTime and Skype are leading more and more individuals to seek cosmetic surgery for their neck and chin. Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, and expert facial plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills believes the surplus in chin augmentations and necklift procedures that he’s noticed at his medical practice are directly related to the new research.
“What I’m seeing is a much greater influx in the amount of people, both young and old, who are coming to me for cosmetic procedures in the lower face region. Over the past year alone, I’ve performed many more chin augmentations, necklifts, and filler injections to the lower jaw than in previous years,” said facial plastic surgeon Dr. Azizzadeh.
The new cosmetic surgery trends in regards to necklift and chin augmentation procedures aren’t only true for younger generations, but also for older individuals who are just starting to learn how to use the technology and are gaining a larger presence in social media. Even though people do see their appearance in the mirror every day, never before have they had the opportunity to view so many photos and videos of themselves on a daily basis. Also contributing to the increase in cosmetic surgeries of the lower face are the angles at which video chatting takes place, where the view of the chin and neck are extremely prominent.
“Younger individuals seem to be more concerned with the appearance of their chin, while patients over the age of forty are worried about wrinkles and laxity issues in their neck,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
At the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. Azizzadeh utilizes both non-invasive treatments and surgical procedures to improve an aesthetic appearance of the lower face. Growing in popularity is the liquid facelift, a procedure requiring no downtime for the individual and absolutely no incisions.
“To correct an aging neck and face in patients who are experiencing early aging, I can perform a non-invasive facelift by using Sculptra to enhance the jawline and Ulthera to tighten and tone sagging skin. This is a great option for patients who aren’t quite ready for a surgical approach,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
