“Instant” Neck Lift Without Surgery Superior results with minimally invasive technology*

As advances are made in minimally invasive facial rejuvenation technologies, cosmetic/plastic surgeons are getting closer to obtaining surgical like results without a scalpel.

At the present there is not a single non-surgical or minimally invasive modality that seems to get the results people were looking for in a non-surgical neck lift until now! As a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience in cosmetic surgery, I felt the same way.  I wanted to be able to offer my patients, who desired a non-surgical neck lift superior results. To accomplish this goal I combine micro-liposuction, internal injectable radiofrequency (ThermiTight™), and barbed absorbable suspension sutures to create an almost instant result that improves with time and typically last several years.*

I call this procedure The “Instant” Neck Lift”.*  Patients are excited to learn that this procedure:

  • Is performed under local anesthesia.
  • Takes less than an hour to complete.*
  • The patient goes home with a compressive dressing which is removed the next morning and then they wear it at bedtime only for approximately 2-3 weeks.*
  • Bruising is minimal because we use only blunt needles.
  • Normal activities can be resumed almost immediately with the exception of heavy exercise that may affect the effectiveness of the barbed sutures.*

Insertion of Barbed Absorbable Sutures

While the results are immediate (micro-liposuction fat removal plus the immediate suspension and tightening of skin along the jawline with the barbed absorbable sutures), the internal radiofrequency heating starts up process of shrinking or as I like to say shrink wrapping the skin of the neck.*  


This process takes up to a year and serial photograph showed the neck looking better and better over this period of time.*

Individual results may vary.

This was taken 3 1/2 weeks later because the procedure was performed 2 days prior to Hurricane Irma and immediate follow up was impossible.*
