There is a new combination of Non-Surgical neck lift that combines Thermi (Radiofrequency heating) of the skin with micro suctioning of the fat under the skin and below the jaw line. The "tightening" usually takes place over a year or so. To speed up the process with an immediate result, we have added the use of barbed sutures that are placed through the same punctures used for the Thermi and micro-liposuction. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and takes approximately 45 minutes from beginning to end. Downtime can be as little as 48 hours and discomfort is minimal. Here is an interview with the patient that has undergone this procedure.
