If you are looking for a Non-Invasive procedure to remove a double chin, then your BEST option may be a Weekend Necklift.
The laser assisted 'weekend' necklift represents the evolution of sophisticated facial plastic surgery techniques. These techniques are uniquely combined to achieve improvement in the contour of the chin and neck with minimal incisions and rapid recovery.
To achieve a weekend necklift:
- I use cervicofacial liposculpture to contour the unfavorable fatty changes seen in the face and neck as time passes by, such as the 'Turkey neck' and 'double chin'.
- Next I pay careful attention to tightening the neck muscles and reducing neck bands.
- Lastly, I employ laser technology to 'resurface' the underside of the neck skin, thereby 'shrinkwrapping' the skin of the neck restoring a youthful contour.
After a short recovery of a few days, you can return to normal activity and the only evidence that the procedure has been performed is a dramatically improved appearance and a one-inch incision hidden in the natural fold under the chin. It is generally recommended that patients "take it easy" for a week after the procedure. Many patients say they feel nearly normal that afternoon, however, by the next morning they experience some discomfort. This procedure is ideal to have done on a Thursday as most patients can easily return to work the following Monday.
