Aging, genetics and weight gain take a toll on the neck. Sagging skin and excess fat accumulating under the chin (a double chin) can be really frustrating as you strive to maintain a youthful looking face. Exercise and diet can help to some extent, but often fail to provide the desired results. Fortunately, there’s a more effective and long-lasting solution – neck liposuction in New York using the minimally invasive FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex laser-assisted device.
Conventional liposuction or a necklift with/without a facelift can rejuvenate the neck area quite effectively, but younger patients tend to avoid these invasive treatments. Neck laser liposuction is the ideal option for patients with localized submental fat deposits and good skin elasticity. Submental liposuction using Smartlipo can greatly enhance the facial profile, chin, and submental region. It also comes with fewer incisions and quicker recovery. Neck liposuction can be performed alone or in conjunction with a neck lift and facelift.
Smartlipo Triplex laser liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. 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 gently and easily. The device comes with three separate laser wavelengths (1440, 1064 and 1320 nm) that work to liquefy the fat and tighten skin. By precisely targeting unwanted fat, Smartlipo Triplex laser liposuction leaves the surrounding tissues unaffected. Key benefits of the treatment include short downtime, and less pain, bleeding and swelling than conventional surgery.
However, not everyone is a good candidate for neck 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 in the 20 – 50 age group as they have good skin elasticity which is required for good results.
After the procedure, you need to take proper care of the incision areas as infection and scarring can affect results. You surgeon may advise you to take complete rest on the day following the procedure. You may be advised to wear an elastic compression collar around the neck and jaw line area for a period of up to 6 weeks following surgery for optimal results. You will also be advised to sleep with the head of the bed elevated for one week after the treatment. You should avoid bending, lifting or straining the neck area until complete recovery. Regular massage during the recovery phase may speed up healing. The outcome of neck liposuction is long-lasting but weight gain after the surgery can affect the results. So, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle for long-lasting results.
