    Neck Lift & Neck Liposuction

    Tag Archives: Neck Lift

    Neck contouring cosmetic surgery provides the neck and chin with a tauter and smoother appearance. Improvements to a wrinkled, sagging, or thick neck can change the appearance of a person dramatically even if no changes are made to the face.

    Neck lift and neck liposuction procedures can help the patient look significantly younger and as if they have lost weight. Furthermore, neck contouring can recreate balanced facial features by producing a sharper jawline that frames the facial structure.

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Reps B. Sundin, provides neck lift and neck liposuction to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

    Neck Liposuction

    Sometimes even if a person has a healthy body weight, they may have a “double chin.” In such cases, neck liposuction can help the patient permanently accomplish a more contoured and graceful neckline. Liposuction eliminates excess fatty deposits.

    However, it does not cause major improvements in sagging skin. A typical neck liposuction patient will be in their 20’s through early 50’s. The reason for this is that younger patients have more elastic skin.

    The neck liposuction plastic surgery procedure does not take much time to perform, and surgeons commonly perform it under local anesthesia and mild sedation.

    The surgeon will first place one or two small incisions discreetly underneath the chin or behind the ears. Subsequently, they will insert a narrow liposuction cannula and manipulate it to break down the fatty deposits.

    The plastic surgeon will suction out the excess fat and sculpt the neck and chin to provide a natural contour. After the surgery, the patient usually wears a special chin support strap for around three to four days. They can resume work within a week, and full activity can be undertaken in approximately two weeks.

    Patients usually experience some inflammation and bruising in the initial ten to 14 days following neck liposuction.

    Neck Liposuction Aesthetic Benefits

    • Mitigates the “double chin” or fullness beneath the chin
    • Contours the jawline for more balanced facial features and an enhanced chin
    • Patients with good skin tone typically experience the best outcomes
    • Can enhance facial contours further when combined with chin augmentation or nose reshaping surgery
    • Permanent outcomes are possible if the patient stays at a steady weight

    Neck Lift Surgery

    For patients with loose, sagging neck skin, the neck lift surgery is an effective solution. Neck lift surgery is also called cervicoplasty (to eliminate excess skin) or platysmaplasty (to tighten sagging neck muscles). Plastic surgeons will undertake either or both procedures to tighten loose muscles in the neck and eliminate sagging skin. This procedure can restore a firmer, smoother and more contoured look to the neck.

    The neck lift surgery is usually undertaken on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or IV sedation. The plastic surgeon will place a tiny incision behind each ear and, if necessary, a third incision beneath the chin. They will use these incisions to firm the neck muscles and/or underlying tissues and eliminate excess loose skin.  

    Experienced cosmetic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for neck contouring.

    Non-Surgical Neck Lift – Renuvion J-Plasma Before & After Photos

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    J-Plasma body contouring and skin tightening is an innovative procedure that tightens and contours sagging skin anywhere on the body in a non-invasive manner.

    This treatment is ideally used to perform a neck lift for patients who want to avoid cosmetic surgery. The J-Plasma system uses a unique device that delivers “helium plasma’’ energy through small incisions to the skin’s undersurface in the neck area.

    The patient can receive J-Plasma treatment by itself or as is frequently the case, along with liposuction. After a fat removal through liposuction, J-Plasma can tighten the skin. This combination produces excellent improvements to the contours of the body which would not have been possible otherwise.

    Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides non-surgical neck lift with J-Plasma to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.

    How is the Procedure Done?

    Initially, the neck region is infiltrated with the same local tumescent anesthesia that is used while performing liposuction.

    Then, the surgeon will place small incisions in the treatment area. Subsequently, they will use these incisions to insert a special device to deliver helium plasma energy the skin’s undersurface to tighten and control it in a precise manner.  

    The helium plasma energy makes the skin tauter immediately as well as enhances the production of new collagen in the treated area. The improvements continue to establish for many months after the treatment.

    Helium Plasma Energy

    Helium is an inert and non-reactive gas. But when radiofrequency energy ionizes it, it becomes very reactive. This is a state that scientists call “plasma.” Upon contact with the undersurface of the skin, the helium plasma immediately makes it taut to a level that is unmatched by other contemporary technologies such as radiofrequency, ultrasound or lasers.

    Furthermore, helium plasma is much cooler than laser energy. This makes it much less harmful. J-Plasma is an innovative device that has received FDA-approval for tightening skin on almost any area of the body such as the neck, arms, back, abdomen, tors0, etc.

    Final Results with J-Plasma Neck Lift

    The body contouring and skin tightening impacts are visible between one and two weeks as soon as the inflammation dissipates. Within one month of the procedure, the patient experiences a remarkable enhancement in the appearance of the neck area.

    The helium energy promotes collagen production over the next three to six months following the procedure. This enables the neck skin to look tauter and more youthful.

    Estimated Downtime

    The patient can expect mild inflammation and slight bruising following this procedure. This usually resolves in a week to 14 days. Even if the liposuction and J-Plasma procedures are done together, the healing time is the same as that with liposuction alone.

    The surgeon may advise the patient to wear post-liposuction garments after a J-Plasma procedure. The patient can resume light activities after two to three days of the procedure similar to liposuction.

    Experienced cosmetic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for J-Plasma neck lift treatment.

    NovaThreads EZ Neck Lift as Seen on The Doctors TV Show

    Loose skin in the neck area can create an unsightly appearance because the neck is one of the more visible parts of the body. While neck lift plastic surgery can reverse this condition, many people want to avoid an elective surgical procedure even when they are unhappy about their sagging skin in the neck. NovaThreads EZ neck lift is a promising non-surgical solution for all such people.
    NovaThreads treatment is designed to address the aging skin in the lower third of the face, but it achieves the best outcomes when used to lift the neck.
    The procedure involves a single in-office treatment, and the patient will not go through any significant discomfort or downtime. It is also popularly known as ‘lunchtime’ neck lift because working people can simply get the procedure done during their lunch hour from work, and go back to their workplace immediately thereafter.
    Board certified, golden, and wise plastic surgeons at MBody provides NovaThreads EZ neck lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.

    PDO Sutures

    The material used in NovaThreads is PDO, which is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture made of polydioxanone. This medical grade material has been used by surgeons and other medical professionals for decades and it is particularly used in performing advanced procedures such as open heart surgery. NovaThreads include hypothermic needles that are preloaded with PDO sutures.
    The treatment provider will assure the patient about the safety aspects of PDO sutures at the time of initial consultation. PDO sutures are recognized in the medical industry as one of the safest materials implanted in the human body. It takes about four to six months for the body to fully absorb the suture. Unlike plastic surgery, this procedure does not lead to scar tissue formation.

    Advantages

    A lunchtime lift with NovaThreads offers the following advantages to a patient:

    • It is an instant neck lift, providing a subtle lift and tightening in the neck skin immediately.
    • It triggers the production of fresh collagen for more sustainable, natural looking results and self-healing.
    • It lifts, tightens, and smoothes the neck skin from inside out.
    • The procedure does not require general anesthesia, and can be comfortably performed using a local anesthetic.
    • Minimal to no downtime is involved.
    • The duration of the procedure is short – it will usually require less than an hour.
    • No cuts or incisions are made.
    • No scars or scar tissue will occur.
    • Sutures are safely and naturally reabsorbed in the body over a few months.
    • Results can easily last for up to one to two years.

    NovaThreads skin tightening treatment can be performed virtually in any area of the body, but the best outcomes are usually seen in the neck area. Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other cities and neighborhoods across the fruited plane for NovaThreads.
