Benefits of a Neck Lift via SmartLipo
The primary benefits of a neck lift by SmartLipo® are that the bruising and discomfort associated with the procedure are almost completely eliminated. Some other advantages of the procedure include:
- The procedure is suitable for both men and women
- A SmartLipo® neck lift can be completed in an hour or less
- The treatment prevents fat from building back up
- The neck left results in tighter, younger looking skin
What Is the Procedure for a Neck Lift via SmartLipo®?
Dr. Taghizadeh begins by administering a local anesthetic. You may be slightly awake and alert but won’t experience any discomfort. Once your neck is numbed, the doctor inserts a small tube near the point where your neck meets your ear or slightly lower depending on the treatment area. The SmartLipo® machine generates a current through the first tube, which causes the fat in the neck to dissolve and liquefy.
Once the fat is fully melted, Dr. Taghizadeh will remove the first tube and insert a second. This device acts as a vacuum to remove the fat from your neck area. The entire process takes about 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Neck Lift via SmartLipo® Recovery
After your neck lift procedure, you should plan to spend two hours or more in one of our recovery rooms, plus a few days recovering at home. In most cases, Dr. Taghizadeh will use sutures to close the skin where the SmartLipo® tubes were inserted. Therefore, you must make sure the stitches stay dry, and out of sunlight. Within a few weeks after your neck lift procedure, you will schedule and attend a follow-up visit with the doctor. He will remove the sutures and check on your recovery. You can expect full recovery and healing of the incision points within one week after the SmartLipo® neck lift treatment.
Is a Neck Lift via SmartLipo® Right for Me?
While your fitness routine is great for strengthening muscles, flattening your abdomen and toning spots where fat settles, exercise won’t improve the appearance of your neck. A neck lift via SmartLipo® is ideal for many men and women who are non-smokers and are under the age of 65. Dr. Taghizadeh will consult with you to assess your medical history and ask questions to determine if you’re a good candidate for this procedure.
What to Expect During Your Neck Lift via SmartLipo® Consultation
During your initial consultation visit, Dr. Taghizadeh will examine the appearance and condition of your neck tissue in order to make sure a neck lift via SmartLipo® is the right option under your circumstances. The doctor will also review the different benefits of the procedure and give you an idea of what to expect during recovery.
