How much time do you spend thinking about your chin and neck? And do you fret about a lack of prominence, or an excess of fullness in the region? If the answers are ‘a lot’ and ‘yes’, then help is at hand.
In this age of video phones, our necks are under heightened scrutiny, which is why cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Sigel of The Austin-Weston Center in Virginia, USA has recently expanded his offering to include a neck-and-chin focused procedure he is calling the ‘Facetime facelift’.
A videochat on a smartphone or iPad will tend to accentuate the neck, presenting a tucked-in, unflattering view of the soft tissue area between the caller’s digastricus and suprasternal notch. Sigel’s wife noticed as much when she first started using the video feature on her iPhone, mid-2011.
“She didn’t like the way she looked when she talked on her iPhone, y’know,” explains Sigel in a promotional video for the new procedure (watch below).
“She’d hold this thing down here and when people do that it tends to draw their chin in a little bit and it accentuates any fullness they have in this area. So we’d been talking about this for some time – she’s 50 – about me doing some form of a lift on her. I’m trying to put it off as much as I could but it got to the point where she said you know this is not… OK”
Sigel’s wife probably got a freebie lift, but members of the general public should expect to shell out about $10,000. …For the price-conscious gentleman, there is of course the more affordable option of a beard.
