As we age, the skin around the jawline can start to sag and leave fatty deposits that appear as jowls. Several techniques are available to help reduce the fat tissue in the neck, giving you a younger appearance. Traditional neck lifts have been providing these results through surgical techniques. Another procedure that has been providing incredible results in a safe manner is radio frequency assisted liposuction, also called NeckTite. This state-of-the-art procedure uses radio frequency technology to “melt” the stores of fat tissue before being suctioned away. Here are key differences between these fat reduction procedures that target the neck.
Traditional neck lifts surgically remove stores of fat tissue to reduce the appearance of saggy skin. This technique is invasive in nature, as it requires surgical incisions that can take several weeks to heal. Results of this procedure are typically a smoother appearance to the skin. Radio frequency assisted liposuction, or NeckTite, provides these same results without the invasiveness. This non-invasive procedure uses only small incisions to insert the required instruments. The radio frequency technology “melts” the fat tissue to soften it before it is safely suctioned away.
Traditional neck lifts can provide tighter skin through additional surgical options following the removal of the fat tissue. NeckTite procedures can achieve this added benefit all at once. The heat helps induce collagen production that will leave your skin feeling and looking tighter. No more will you have to deal with loose neck skin or flappy jaws. Pay for this single procedure and achieve the benefits of two or more procedures that are often needed when choosing traditional neck lifts.
When choosing a traditional neck lift, you can expect a recovery time of approximately six weeks long. The body will take this period to heal from the invasive surgical precisions needed. NeckTite procedures avoid this by only using small incisions that take approximately a week in length in heal. Most patients will only see a small puncture mark immediately following the procedure which is virtually unnoticeable.
