What I can do about persistent neck fullness?
Are you bothered by fullness under your chin? Do you find yourself constantly pushing your chin forward to get a nicer contour? If so then you maybe a good candidate for liposuction of the neck. Slim lipo is a unique technique were dual wavlengths are used to shrink the fat and then helps tighten the skin. A small incision hidden behind the chin is all that is needed to access the area and introduce the laser. Because the laser coagulates blood vessels bruising is kept to a minimum.
Who are good candidates?
Patients who have excess skin and fullness in their submental area or area under their chin are good candidates for this. In patients who have a lot of redundant skin in their neck then they will need additional surgery to reposition and remove the excess skin. In addition, for patients who have bands in their neck that bother them we can help correct them at the same time but this will require a different procedure which we can discuss later.
Liposuction of the neck can be performed with local anesthesia, which means we place medication in the skin that will numb the area we are treating and we avoid putting in IV and having you go to sleep. Because of this treatment time is about 45 minutes and your total time in the office is about 2 hours so you still have the rest of the day to do whatever you need!
Postop care is minimal. You can go back to your routine the next day!
