Neck Lift in Baltimore, Maryland
Starting at an early age, adults are sensitive to the appearance of their necks. Loose, sagging skin, excess fat, and muscle laxity can make you look older or even heavier than you really are. And, unlike many other signs of aging, a “turkey neck,” a double chin, or skin banding is nearly impossible to hide.
Fortunately, we have effective options to address an aging neck and rejuvenate your appearance. By making a few small changes to the neck with a neck lift, you can look much younger and feel more confident.
Personalized neck lift treatments to achieve your goals
Neck contouring requires an individualized, comprehensive approach to address your anatomical aging. It isn’t enough to simply tighten the skin; the natural contour and condition of the skin, muscles, and tissues of your entire lower face and neck all influence what neck lift treatments will work best for you.
At BELECARA, we create a unique treatment plan for you to achieve the results you desire with the least invasive approach possible. Depending on your specific needs, our approach may address removal or tightening of excess skin, fat removal for an improved profile, and/or muscle contouring to address bands and laxity.
Kybella – Double Chin Removal
Belecara is excited to offer Kybella – a brand new, non-invasive solution for reducing localized chin fat.
The woeful double chin – one of the most common complaints for both men and women. Resistant to diet and exercise, it stubbornly refuses to go away, leaving many discouraged in their quest for a defined jawline. Under-the-chin (submental) fat can be caused by weight gain, aging or genetics and, mostly, a combination of the three.
What is Kybella?
Recently approved by the FDA, Kybella is a non-invasive treatment that addresses moderate-to-severe double chins. The active agent in Kybella is identical to deoxycholic acid, a substance the body manufactures that helps absorb fat. When injected, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from the body. The result is a more sculpted chin.
During a Kybella treatment, your Belecara plastic surgeon will administer an injection into the fatty area beneath the chin. Your surgeon will recommend the appropriate number of treatments necessary to eliminate your excess fat, but up to six may be advised for optimal results. Treatments last approximately 20 mins. Subsequent treatments should be scheduled no less than a month apart. Because Kybella permanently destroys fat cells, the results can be long-lasting. To maintain your results, we recommend a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and avoid weight gain.
Skin Tightening with Precision TX
We are one of the only surgical centers across the mid-Atlantic area to offer Precision TX. Precision TX is a revolutionary treatment that tightens loose skin for a more youthful, refined neckline. It also stimulates collagen production, helping to improve the contour of your neck so it stays firmer long after treatment. Precision TX is often performed in addition to neck liposuction, which removes excess fat.
This laser-assisted, minimally invasive treatment only takes about 90 minutes and is performed in our office using local anesthesia and oral sedation. The laser is unique in that it treats the skin internally through small incisions in the skin. Whether performed on its own or along with liposuction, this can be an excellent option to treat sagging neck skin.
If excess fat underneath the chin and on your neck is your major concern, neck liposuction may be what you need to see a more graceful, refined neck and jawline and eliminate a “double chin” appearance. Through tiny, easily camouflaged incisions, your surgeon will gently remove the excess fat under the chin, sculpting the area to achieve a naturally youthful neck contour. Patients with reasonable skin tone and moderate fat deposits are excellent candidates for this procedure. For optimal facial harmony, our surgeons frequently perform a neck liposuction along with Precision TX.
Your surgery will be performed at our fully accredited surgical facility, Bellona Surgery Center. We work exclusively with board-certified anesthesiologists to ensure that your surgery is as safe as possible. After surgery, you will be able to rest in the comfort of your own home. Recovery can vary depending upon the operative plan and your overall health and well being. It will be guided and supervised by your surgeon.
