Neck Lift


iStock_23104503_MEDIUMAlthough a formal, complete neck lift is very similar to a facelift, frequently the neck line can be improved with smaller procedures, or, even, liposuction alone. When the tumescent technique is used in the liposuction of your neck and chin, the areas of fat are injected with an anesthetic which causes the fat to become swollen, or “tumesced”. The resulting expanded tissues make the fat easier to remove.

The SmartLipo Triplex laser offers great results with less trauma and less downtime. It uses laser technology to melt and liquefy the fat within the fat cells. In addition, it smoothes and tightens the skin.

The procedure can  be performed while the patient is awake with minimal discomfort and quicker recovery. Many people can return to work and normal activities within a week. You will begin to notice the difference in your new look almost immediately after surgery.

Kybella is a newer, FDA approved non-surgical option to remove unwanted fat in the neck for certain patients. It is listed in its own tab, under the ‘Skin’ menu.
