Dermasurgeon Dr. Eric Finzi Explains How To Reduce Neck Fat Using Liposuction, and in Some Cases, Combined With Ultherapy, for A Chisled Chin
The neck is an important area of cosmetic concern for men and women alike. Over the past 20 years I have treated over 3,000 patients safely under local anesthesia with tumescent liposuction to reduce excess fat in the neck and chin areas. What most people don't realize is how quick, safe and easy treatment of the neck is, by this technique.
Using local anesthesia, in 30 minutes, and without a single suture, I can reliably remove all the excess fat from the neck. And because we don't need sutures there aren't visible scars. I mention this because there has been some recent press about getting rid of fat by injecting chemicals that kill the fat cells. In the end, because this new treatment requires multiple visits and needle injections, it is more complicated, expensive and painful than simple liposuction. Over the years there have been many "new" cosmetic treatments for fat, most of which are no longer even discussed. Only the true tumescent liposuction technique of removing the fat has proven itself over time, and it is too early to tell the fate of this latest beauty craze and press darling.
Cases Of Excess Fat In The Neck
In some cases where there is a lot of excess fat in the neck, and a more pronounced, chisled jawline is desired, a combination of liposuction and Ultherapy will get the best,
most dramatic results. After healing from the tumescent liposuction procedure to remove the unwanted fat, I will then treat the neck with Ultherapy skin tightening using ultrasound technology to further lift and contour the skin on the neck - the optimal facial symmetry my patients with double chins desire.
Ultherapy works by delivering the right amount of ultrasonic energy at the right depths, and at the right temperature, which triggers skin tightening plus the natural regeneration of age-weakened collagen. The production of fresh, new collagen takes three to six months to see the final results.
Banish that double chin and turkey neck fat for good in two treatment sessions, all from the comfort of Chevy Chase Cosmetic Center’s Maryland in-office medical suites. You’ll look healthier, younger and more refreshed in no time.
