Though diet and exercise can enhance muscle tone, this may not be sufficient to get rid of fat deposits and excess skin in certain areas such as the neck. Hereditary factors, weight fluctuations, and aging can result in fat buildup and sagging in the neck and loss of youthful contour. Fortunately, neck liposuction is specially designed to resolve these issues and rejuvenate the area. This liposuction surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a neck lift and facelift.
SmartLipo for Liposuction of the Neck
Minimally invasive SmartLipo Triplex is ideal for neck liposuction. This laser-enabled body sculpting device from Cynosure features an Nd:YAG laser capable of emitting laser radiation in three wavelengths — 1064nm, 1320nm and 1440nm. These wavelengths can be used independently or uniquely blended for superior results. The tiny cannula (about 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter) which contains the laser fiber is inserted into the skin through a small incision. The laser energy gently melts the fat cells which can be aspirated through the same incision. Performed by an expert plastic surgeon, the procedure can result in a slender, well-defined and attractive neck. The procedure also offers remarkable skin tightening effects by stimulating tissue coagulation.
This innovative workstation is also designed for safe delivery of laser energy as it comes equipped with the following intelligent delivery systems:
Thermaguide with temperature monitoring capabilities that prevents burns and other complications associated with conventional laser lipolysis technology
SmartSense, an intelligent hand piece delivery system that distributes precise energy for optimal results
ThermaView which provides the thermal map of the treatment area and shares the information on skin temperature by sending a warning message when the maximum recommended temperature is reached
Benefits of the Treatment
Successful removal of excess fat deposits in the neck area
Enhanced jaw line definition
Sculpted, improved neck contour
Tightening of sagging skin

As laser lipolysis can be carried out under local anesthesia, it is considered a safe, hassle-free procedure. Patients remain awake during the entire plastic surgery procedure and discomfort is minimal. Scarring, bleeding, pain and trauma are negligible. Recovery is usually quick, allowing patients to return to normal activity within a few days. Most patients see significant improvement soon after the procedure, which is a more compact and smaller appearance of the treated area. Best results are seen after several months — a well-sculpted, improved and firmer neck contour.
