Lose the Turkey Neck with the Mini Neck Shrink Lift
If you have excess fat around your jawline and upper neck, you could be a candidate for the minimally-invasive procedure known as the mini neck shrink lift. This simple plastic surgery procedure is designed for patients who want to get rid of the “turkey neck” and achieve a more sculpted, youthful look. The mini neck shrink lift is performed under general anesthesia and produces amazing results for both men and women.
How the Mini Neck Shrink Lift is Performed
If you have a lot of fat around the base of your jawline or have developed a “double chin” over the years, the mini neck shrink lift can help to get rid of the fat permanently and creates a more sculpted look. Excess fat is removed with the SmartLipo laser lipo device, a laser that heats up the fat before extraction for easy removal. The heat from the laser causes a tightening and smoothing of the skin. This process helps to reduce the appearance of any wrinkles and creates a very smooth and sculpted look.
After the fat has been removed, the skin heals fairly quickly. A follow up procedure may involve Thermage skin tightening around the treated area. This can help to eliminate any bumps and smooth out the neck even further.
Best Candidates for the Mini Neck Shrink Lift
The mini neck shrink lift offers a number of benefits over traditional facial liposuction and other types of surgery. It is a minimally-invasive procedure because the doctor only needs to make very small incisions around the jawline. These incisions are so small that they are barely noticeable, and the skin will heal very quickly shortly after the procedure. If you have considered facial plastic surgery or facial liposuction, you may be well-suited for the mini neck shrink lift procedure.
The best candidates for the mini neck shrink lift are men and women who:
- Want to get rid of lines and wrinkles around the neck and lower jaw area
- Cannot seem to get rid of stubborn inches around the jawline with diet and exercise
- Don’t want a procedure that involves any downtime
- Are interested in a low-cost and affordable alternative to facelift surgery
- Are on a tight schedule and want to resume regular activities or go back to work the next day
The mini neck shrink lift is performed on an outpatient basis and can be completed in under an hour. Patients typically experience little to no downtime and they do not need to worry about the risks and side effects associated with anesthesia.
