Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This is a 43 year old woman who had lost a lot of weight with the help of bariatric surgery here in New York City. She presented asking for a more defined jawline and to "lift" her neck. I had to explain that a formal neck lift operation is a good procedure, but may not be necessary in her case. She agreed to allow me to try Smartlipo Liposuction of the neck.
I prefer using laser liposuction on the neck (and in the arms) because I really do believe that it helps to tighten up the skin and soft tissues just a bit. In my experience, Smartlipo is far superior to classic liposuction in the neck for that reason. This patient is proof that it helps. After all, she had a fair amount of loose neck skin before the operation was performed and she has done well. Her neck skin is clearly tighter and more supple as a result of this operation.
