Neck Liposuction Procedure

A well-defined neck line greatly improves overall facial appearance and makes you look more youthful. Aging, fluctuations in weight and hereditary factors can cause excess fat to accumulate in the neck area. Such fat will not go away even with diet and exercise and can make the person look overweight. Neck liposuction is ideal to reduce these localized deposits of fat. Performed using advanced laser technology, the procedure also tightens the skin to result a more youthful, smooth and sculpted neckline.

Neck Revitalization using SmartLipo Triplex

Leading plastic surgeons perform liposuction of the neck using the advanced FDA-approved SmartLipo Triplex workstation. This minimally-invasive system’s three powerful laser wavelengths — 1440, 1320 and 1064 nm — can be used independently or uniquely blended using MultiPlex™ technology to sculpt the neck area. The combination of the 1064nm + 1440nm lasers breaks down the adipose tissue whereas the blending of the 1064nm + 1320nm lasers tightens the tissues through coagulation.

The area to be treated is numbed by injecting a tumescent solution. The device’s small cannula is inserted in the treatment site through an incision. The laser energy is directed at the fat deposits to liquefy them so that they can be easily removed. Coagulation of the blood vessels minimizes bleeding. The laser energy also stimulates the production of collagen and tightens the loose skin.

This workstation also features special delivery systems – ThermaGuide and ThermaView – that enable the plastic surgeon to target the site precisely and deliver the right amount of laser energy. This allows optimal treatment without any thermal injury.

Neck liposuction surgery can be carried out as a standalone procedure or along with other treatments such as facelift, jawlift or neck lift.

SmartLipo laser lipolysis is an outpatient procedure that involves less pain, bruising and swelling than conventional body contouring surgery. Recovery is also faster and easier as the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Most patients can resume mild forms of activity almost immediately. Immediate results are seen soon after the procedure, which is a notable reduction in fat. Results will improve overtime.

Men and women who have mild to moderate excess fat and less sagging and elastic skin in the neck area and who have realistic expectations are ideal candidates for neck liposuction. The treatment is available in established plastic surgery facilities in Manhattan, NYC. Only an experienced plastic surgeon would be able to provide customized treatment to meet your aesthetic objectives. Choosing an accredited surgical facility dedicated to Smartlipo treatments is important for safe treatment and optimal results.
