Neck-less: Have You Ever Wanted a Tighter More Youthful Neck But Were Afraid of Major Surgery or Scars?

LWMNovDec2014small_Page_15Are you tired of looking in the mirror, only to see a turkey gobbler or asking yourself the question: What happened to my neck?? Many people have the same problem. After you have exhausted all the creams, exercises and supplements, we suggest a more effective solution: SmartLipo of the neck.

As we age gravity takes its toll; structures of the face, neck and body start to lose tone and begin to sag. Depending on the severity and the desired results there are now methods which are less invasive to turn back the clock.

One of patient’s most common complaints when feeling like they are looking older is that their neck is either fuller than they want, that their skin sags or both. In the past the most common method to address these concerns was either Liposuction (not good in patients with poor skin laxity), a formal neck lift requiring a more invasive approach including scars in front and behind the ears, or a combination of both procedures.

With two new, exciting procedures, SmartLipo or The Precision Treatment, the neck can now be improved with a minimally invasive procedure done in the office under local anesthesia, thereby avoiding high costs and hospital stays. This also means minimal scars near the ears, little discomfort and almost no downtime.

SmartLipo uses a high powered laser, in conjunction with small cannula liposuction to remove excess fat in the neck and tighten the skin with minimal scars and a very short downtime. In patients with minimal or no excess fatty tissue but with loose skin the Precision Treatment is ideal. Using the same high powered laser as SmartLipo but with a specialized fiber that allows bi-directional delivery of laser energy, the skin can now be tightened without skin removal and again with minimal scars and downtime. Another benefit of these procedures, not seen with the more invasive surgeries, is that collagen is stimulated making the skin look healthier and smoother.

Although not for everyone, the most common patients looking for these new procedures are:
• Patients who want results but aren’t ready to go under the more extensive, invasive procedures
• Patients who aren’t yet a candidate for a facelift and want more definition in their neck or along their jaw
• Cost-conscious patients & those who can’t financially afford a surgical facelift
• Patients who have already undergone a surgical facelift and are looking for a minimally invasive treatment to maintain their look.
