Aging or weight gain can cause fat to accumulate in the neck and jaw area and result in a double chin. Submental fat is a common cosmetic concern that both men and women face. Even strenuous diets and exercise cannot eliminate this fat effectively. Fortunately, there’s an effective and long-lasting solution – neck laser liposuction in NYC. Performed using Smartlipo technology, this minimally invasive laser liposuction procedure can provide attractive outcomes for the right candidate.
Excess fat and sagging skin can make your neckline appear full, heavy, and poorly defined and it makes young people seem older, and fit people look out of shape. Contouring the neck changes the whole look of your face. According to 2018 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery consumer survey, 73% of all Americans turn to cosmetic procedures to resolve excess fat under the chin/neck. Neck liposuction in New York performed by an experienced liposuction surgeon can effectively remove undesirable fat from the neck area, and provide a more defined contour to the neck and jawline.
Neck liposuction is performed using the minimally-invasive Smartlipo Triplex workstation. With this FDA approved device, the procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis. After marking the treatment site and administering local anesthesia, the minimally-invasive cannula of the Smartlipo device will be used to deliver laser energy to target the fat cells through a tiny incision in the skin. This laser energy will cause the fat to liquefy, allowing it to be suctioned out easily.
However, many patients desire not just neck contouring, but a comprehensive facial contouring solution. The good news is that neck liposuction can be combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures to improve overall facial appearance. Rejuvenating your other facial features can create a naturally balanced appearance. Here are the common procedures that patients can combine their neck contouring procedure:
- Neck Lift: Neck liposuction also can be performed alone or in conjunction with a neck lift. While liposuction can correct excess fat. However, if there is loose skin or visible muscle bands, a neck lift would be recommended to tighten the muscles and remove excess skin. Neck lift procedures include cervicoplasty (removes excess skin) and platysmaplasty (removes or makes changes in your neck muscles). Botox injections can addresses the horizontal lines or bands on the neck.
- Facelift: This procedure can take years off your face by eliminating lines, folds, wrinkles and sagging skin. Facelift surgery focuses on the lower two thirds of the face to improve mid-face sagging, lower eyelids creases, creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth (nasolabial folds), and facial fat. Combining a facelift and neck lift allows the cosmetic surgeon to address jowling, sagging cheeks, and lax neck tissues in a single procedure. Patients who only want to resolve signs of aging in the neck need to have only a neck lift and not a facelift.
- Chin augmentation: This aesthetic procedure can tone a receding or weak chin by modifying its projection and can also address concerns such as natural recession due to aging, congenital defects and defects caused by injury. Chin augmentation involves inserting an implant or chin bone reduction surgery. Reliable plastic surgery facilities offer a wide variety of advanced, solid and semi-solid implant materials in different shapes for reshaping the chin during a neck liposuction procedure.
- Rhinoplasty: Reshaping the nose to better fit a patient’s face while also improving the jawline can dramatically enhance facial balance. Otherwise known as nose reshaping surgery or a “nose job”, rhinoplasty can correct the structural abnormalities of the nose, thereby enhancing overall facial appearance.
Not everyone is a good candidate for neck laser liposuction in New York City. The ideal candidate for neck liposuction is a healthy person with localized fat deposits in the area below the chin. The person should be at or near to their ideal body weight with mild to moderate excess fat and skin in the neck area and have a strong underlying bone structure and have good skin elasticity. According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, neck liposuction is the ideal option for people ages 20 – 50, as they have good skin elasticity which is required for good results.
