The neck is one of the areas where signs of aging first show up, but it often gets overlooked. Aging, weight gain, and genetics can lead to excess fat accumulating under the chin or a double chin, which can be really frustrating as you strive to maintain a fresh and youthful looking face. Neck laser liposuction in NYC performed using advanced Smartlipo laser technology can provide the solution to this concern.
Neck laser liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure which removes excess fatty tissue and tightens the skin to result in more well-defined jawline and neck. This procedure helps men and women achieve a better defined, more graceful neckline. The considerations and goals with neck liposuction are as follows:
- Removes excess fat from the neck region
- Improves the appearance of a “double chin” or fullness underneath the chin
- Refines the jawline to enhance the chin or bring balance to facial features
- Tightens the skin
- Reshapes neck contour
- Patients with good skin tone will typically see the best results
- Can be combined with a neck lift, facelift chin augmentation or rhinoplasty to further enhance appearance
- Creates a more defined, youthful facial appearance
- Results are permanent so long as you maintain a stable weight
The ideal candidate for neck liposuction is a healthy person with a double 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 in the 20 – 50 age group, as they have good skin elasticity which is required for good results.
Smartlipo Triplex laser liposuction in NYC is minimally-invasive procedure. With this FDA approved Smartlipo 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 is 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. The procedure also comes with superior skin tightening effects. Scars would not be visible as the incisions are hidden under the chin.
The main advantages of this treatment include
- Precise targeting of fat
- Minimal pain, bleeding, and swelling
- Short downtime
- Quick recovery
