What Is Laser Liposuction Of The Neck, Chin & Lower Face?
The Laser Liposuction procedure consists of a minimally invasive fat removal treatment which uses the focused power of laser energy to break up and dissolve fatty tissue trapped beneath the skin. By directing the energy to your neck and lower facial areas, beneath the surface of your skin, this technique also encourages the development of collagen, which results in a tightened more toned appearance overall. With the rebuilding of collagen, this also gives you a more youthful look. On the chin and jowls, laser liposuction can create the results of a thinner, more sculpted lower face and the tightening "turkey neck".
The laser liposuction technique is especially popular because it requires no general anesthesia, and therefore offers a quick recovery time. Most patients usually resume normal activities on the same day they had this procedure. Having laser liposuction of the neck and lower facial areas, can be performed as an outpatient procedure in our medspa. Incredibly you can have troublesome areas, literally transformed in less than a few hours. The minimal invasiveness of this procedure allows patients to see faster results and to experience fewer complications in a single visit. Unlike traditional liposuction, laser liposuction provides a faster treatment results and better skin retraction (tightening) for a more smooth, toned, and natural look.
Is Neck, Chin & Lower FaceLaser Liposuction (Simular to Smart Lipo) Right For Me?
Although many neck, chin and jowl candidates have a little extra fat they want to get rid of, you do not need to have a significant amount of fat to see the skin tightening benefits from the procedure.
Most of our happiest patients do not have significant sagging or a lot of loose skin, they want to have a more sculpted jaw line and chin.
You may be a good candidate for Laser Liposuction if you are in good health, and practice a healthy lifestyle. Please contact us today for your free consultation.
Is The Fat Removal Permanent?
The fat removal will be permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle after this procedure. Any significant weight gain can result in the return of fat to the treated areas, as well as untreated areas. In your lower facial area, as you may continue to see signs of aging, we can also offer other treatments to maintain your youthful appearance such as botox, juvederm, radiesse, voluma, restylane. Skin texture and appearance improves with a good skincare routine that will help to minimize the appearance of aging. Please ask us today to recommend the right skin care regimen for you.
How Is The Laser Liposuction Procedure Performed?
Prior to beginning laser liposuction procedure, your lower face, neck, chin and other areas to be treated will be carefully marked. You will receive a local anesthetic to numb each of these areas. Your incisions are generally 3 mm or less in size. These are made so that the laser and suction cannulas will be inserted. Typically the lower facial area will require 1-4 tiny incisions placed inconspicuously. Using a small, handheld device, the laser energy is directed toward the fat cells beneath the skin's surface. As the laser energy is fired, the fat cells break apart and liquefy. Most of the fat is withdrawn at the time of treatment. Then, during the initial days following the procedure, the rest of the liquefied fat will be drained away by the body's natural processes. The laser energy also encourages the growth of new collagen, which tightens skin and improves the overall appearance of the neck, chin and jowls. The laser energy also helps seal small blood vessels, reducing bleeding and subsequent swelling in the treated areas.
What Can I Expect My Recovery To Be Like?
During the recovery process, there may be some minor discomfort for the first 24 hours following your laser liposuction procedure, which can be effectively treated with prescription or over-the-counter medication. The areas from your small incision sites may drain slightly until the morning after the procedure. Patients may also experience minor and temporary bruising, which typically disappears within 2 weeks of treatment. On the lower facial areas, we also prescribe the use of a compression band for a few days to a week to help in healing and to minimize swelling. Swelling may persist up to 2 weeks.
Once any initial swelling has resolved following the procedure, the treated areas will appear tighter and more toned. The results will continue to improve within the first 6 to 8 weeks following the procedure, as the skin readapts to new curves and outlines. In most patients, optimal results are visible at about 8 weeks following the Laser Liposuction procedure. Most people return to work within 24-48 hours of having their treatment.
