As we age, we often develop a little more fat under the chin – in the neck. In addition, there is often some skin laxity in the neck. For patients for whom it’s appropriate, Dr. Sarnoff and Dr. Gotkin use laser lipolysis to target and melt away fat in the neck and tighten the skin. In terms of the results it yields, the best comparison is liposuction, but the skin tightening is more than what can be attained with conventional liposuction.
While laser lipolysis in New York City stands apart from the other procedures at Cosmetique in that it requires our patients to set aside the necessary recovery time, it is uniquely efficient and effective at removing fat in the neck and the jowls, the presence of which does so much to create an aged look in the face. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and you can be awake, if you wish!
Many of our patients prefer to have this procedure done on the front end of a weekend, for more healing time. There’s virtually no downtime afterward, recovery is brief, and there’s much less bruising than typically seen after traditional liposuction. Dr. Sarnoff talks about neck contouring with laser lipolysis and presents spectacular before and after images on this segment of Aesthetic TV.
This same laser can also be used to treat cellulite and remove fat elsewhere on the body. Dr. Gotkin also uses it to do a laser-assisted tummy tuck that he calls his Ipanema Tummy Tuck. Services areas include: New York, Manhattan, Melville, East Hills & Glen Cove New York.
