Non-surgical Neck and Jawline Contouring for Women

Nonsurgical neck and jawline contouring use leading edge cosmetic devices designed specifically for women who want to enhance the appearance of their neck, jawline and chin area.
Unlike traditional surgical procedures, nonsurgical neck lift and jawline contouring treatments do not require general anesthesia and can be done in our office. Using a combination of high definition liposuction, radio-frequency heat and sometimes permanent suspension threads, we are able to reduce any excess fat cells (double chin), tighten neck skin and improve skin elasticity by stimulating collagen production for durable results.
The results of non-surgical neck and jawline contouring are dramatic yet natural-looking. Over time, the treated areas will become firmer, smoother, and more sculpted, giving women a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Furthermore, non-surgical neck lifts and jawline contouring are safe and effective nonsurgical options, as they carry minimal risk and complications.

What minimally invasive treatments are available?

There are several minimally invasive treatments available for nonsurgical neck lift and jawline contouring. These include high definition liposuction of the neck, Morpheus8 microneedling, Facetite, MyEllevate permanent threads (zoom lift) and various fillers.
Your consultations are always directly with our physician. Once he understands your concerns and explains clearly what can be expected, a treatment plan will be formulated for you at your appointment.
Overall, there are many minimally invasive options available for neck and jawline contouring, each with their own unique benefits. With the advancements in technology and techniques, achieving a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance without surgery is now more accessible than ever.

What is High definition neck liposuction?

High definition neck liposuction is a specialized procedure that targets excess fat in the neck and chin area to create a more defined and sculpted appearance. This technique uses advanced liposuction technology to precisely remove fatty deposits and contour the neck and reveal a defined jawline. Unlike traditional liposuction, high definition neck liposuction offers more precision and focuses on enhancing the natural contours of the neck muscles, resulting in a more youthful and natural look.
During the procedure, small (2-3mm) incisions are made in inconspicuous areas, allowing our surgeons to insert a thin tube called a cannula. The cannula is then used to gently suction out the excess fat cells, sculpting the neck and lower jaw to create a more defined profile. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort and a quick recovery time.
One of the main advantages of high definition neck liposuction is its ability to target specific areas of concern. Whether you have a double chin, jowls, or excess fat in the neck area, this procedure can effectively address these issues and provide noticeable results. Additionally, high definition liposuction can be combined with other minimally invasive treatments, such as Morpheus8 microneedling or Facetite, to further enhance the overall outcome.

What is Facetite?

Facetite is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that utilizes radiofrequency energy to tighten and contour the skin on the face and neck. It is a non-surgical alternative to traditional facelifts, offering similar results without the need for extensive incisions or downtime.
During a Facetite treatment, a small handheld device is used to deliver controlled radiofrequency energy to the underside of the skin (dermis). This energy heats the underlying tissues, stimulating collagen production and causing the skin to tighten and firm up. At the same time, the energy melts surrounding fat cells.
One of the key benefits of Facetite is its ability to address multiple concerns simultaneously. It can effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, while also improving overall skin texture and tone. The results are natural-looking and long-lasting, with many patients experiencing a significant improvement in their facial contours and overall appearance.
If you have any fatty deposits, we always combine Facetite with our high definition liposuction. By addressing both aspects, we are able to achieve the most tightening and contouring possible except for a traditional facelift which can selectively remove excess skin.

What is MyEllevate (zoom lift)?

MyEllevate (zoom lift) is a technique that utilizes permanent suspension threads to instantly lift and contour the face and neck. During the treatment, permanent polyester sutures are inserted beneath the skin to tighten and lift the skin. These threads are anchored deep in the tissues, providing immediate support and creating a more defined contour. Unlike the majority of “threads” on the market which are biodegradable and short-lived, these permanent threads do not dissolve over time.
MyEllevate threads are a great option for those with more skin laxity than can be treated with Facetite, but are resistant to undergoing a formal surgical procedure like a deep-plane neck lift. The results are long-lasting and can be easily maintained with occasional touch-up treatments.

Who is a good candidate for jawline contouring?

The ideal candidate for jawline contouring is someone who has good quality skin, often in the age range of 25-55, that has fatty deposits under the chin or neck, loose skin (from recent weight loss or simply the aging process)or jowls. Some of us simply were not blessed with the genetics that bestow a delicate neck and jawline.
It is important to have realistic expectations of what can be achieved with non-surgical treatments and understand that these procedures are not meant to replace a traditional face lift. Our plastic surgeons offers both facelifts and non-invasive contouring so will not lead you astray.

How durable are the results of these procedures?

The effects can last for years, depending on individual factors such as age, skin condition, and lifestyle habits. High definition liposuction results in longer-lasting improvement in your neck’s appearance. Facetite and MyEllevate (zoom lift) can provide gradual tightening with long-term, natural-looking results. Our team of board certified surgeons will discuss your expectations and set realistic goals to ensure that you are able to maintain the desired outcome over time. You will be able to review before and after images during your consultation.
No matter what procedure you choose, it is important to follow the post-treatment instructions given by your healthcare provider to ensure optimal results and a safe recovery. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy the benefits of these procedures for many years to come.

What is the recovery time for minimally invasive neck lift treatments?

After the procedure, patients can expect some swelling and bruising which typically subsides within a few days. Results are usually visible immediately, with continued improvement as the swelling goes down. The final outcome from the skin tightening takes 6-9 months to fully realize. Patients are able to return to work and their normal activities within a few days. We will provide detailed post-operative instructions tailored to your individual treatment.
It is important to remember that proper skincare, keeping your head elevated, hydration, healthy diet and sun-protection (we provide you pre and post skin care treatments) help maintain the results of these treatments over time.
