The masks are coming off! What will they reveal?! [video]

 

Greg:
Hey, this is Greg from Big Bay Mornings on 997 Now, and I’m here with a Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bae. Good to see you again, Dr. Bae.

Dr. Bae:
Hey Greg.

Greg:
How’s it going?

Dr. Bae:
Going well, going well. I just want to point out that that is an awesome man-cave with those UT colors.

Greg:
Thank you. You look at that and look at my Longhorn thing back there. Yeah.

Dr. Bae:
And are you familiar with the actual name of the color? That type of orange?

Greg:
Burnt orange? How could I not be? I went to University of Texas.

Dr. Bae:
It’s actually burnt sienna. Yeah. It’s burnt sienna.

Greg:
That’s not what we say at UT. Here, I even have this for you, Dr. Bae, look at that. Hook ’em. I know you went to, not really a rival school, but close, close to University of Texas. You went to LSU.

Dr. Bae:
No, no. Well, for medical school, but I actually went to UT Austin for undergrad. We were a few years off though.

Greg:
Yeah.

Dr. Bae:
You’re getting confused, but it’s all right. Age does that to people.

Masks are coming off!

Greg:
Listen, don’t try to say I’m the older one here, but anyway. All right. I’ve got a question. Speaking of UT, since we both went there, I have this handy dandy mask. See my UT mask. I’ve got it all.

Dr. Bae:
Looks like a jockstrap, but okay.

Greg:
I’ve got those two, but I won’t go get it for you. I got the mask for you. I’m not going to get the jockstrap for you.

Dr. Bae:
And don’t get them mixed up and don’t get them mixed up putting the jockstrap on your face.

Greg:
I don’t know. In my world, that could be kind of exciting, but anyway, we better get back on track before we get in trouble here. Speaking to these masks though, we might not have to wear them forever. We are turning a corner here with the pandemic. Now, of course, we want people to keep wearing their masks right now. But I mean, one of the things that I kind of like about wearing the mask is it covers some of the things I don’t like about my face and the waddle, and maybe any imperfections, but that’s your specialty to fix these kinds of things.

 

Dr. Bae:
Yeah. I mean, it looks like things are getting a little bit closer back to normal. I mean, the CDC said this week that if you’re vaccinated, you can be inside with other people that are vaccinated and you could even be with other people that are unvaccinated as long as they’re not high risk. So the time of starting to remove masks is happening now. I mean, it is according to the CDC, I know that each state has different rules, but it’s happening. People are starting to take off masks and then you’re going to be able to start to see maybe the thin lips, the jowling, the full neck.

Greg:
I’m going to see the COVID-19, the COVID 19 that everybody gained.

Options for the lower face

Dr. Bae:
Right. So if anybody starts to get a little uncomfortable with that, people are still able to work from home so you can go get treatments and still recover from home, so that’s still pretty convenient, but yeah. When it comes to the lower face that was covered by a mask, yes, you can get lip fillers if you want. If you want to plump those up. If you have jowling, maybe just slight jowling, you can actually do liposuction along the whole neck, along the jaw line that can help with jowling.

Options for the neck

Dr. Bae:
If you have really bad jowling, then you need more of a facelift, but that’s obviously a bigger step for some people. And then when it comes to the neck, lots of different things, you can do surgical and nonsurgical. As far as the neck goes, if you have a little bit of folders here, there’s something called Kybella that will melt the fat, but keep in mind it will make your neck swell up like a bullfrog for about a week afterwards.

Greg:
Then you’ll need the mask again.

Dr. Bae:
That’s true. You’ll need the mask again. The other option is CoolSculpting, which it just freezes the fat and then the fat dies. The nice thing about CoolSculpting is that it doesn’t cause that big bullfrog swelling for the week after the treatment, so that’s good.

The SIMI Neck Lift

Dr. Bae:
And then if you really want to take it a step further, if you have a little bit of misplaced skin here, then you can do a surgical treatment, like I offer that I developed and I got published for. It’s called the SIMI neck lift, single incision, minimally invasive neck lift, where we just make one incision here, we undermine the skin, tighten up the skin here. And it avoids those big incisions behind the ears where you would normally remove excess skin. But for the patients who really do have that big turkey gobbler neck, have skin that they got to get rid of, then yeah, you would need to do a full neck lift for that, where you make those incisions behind the ears and remove the skin. So lots of options out there.

Greg:
And I have personal experience with this because my friend, Anna, she flew from Dallas. She came all the way from Texas to get her semi neck lift with you, Dr. Bae, And she absolutely is overjoyed with it. She loves the results.

Dr. Bae:
Well, thank you very much for the referral, Greg. You’ll get a little discount the next time you come in. Not that you are getting anything.

Greg:
I’m coming. I’m coming. You see this, I’m coming. Get your needle ready. Get that Botox ready for me.

Dr. Bae:
It’s ready. You’ve got a bottle of Botox with your name on it.

Greg:
Thank you, Dr. Bae. That’s good. All right.
