There are certain parts of the body that can have stubborn fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Many men and women are now turning to cosmetic surgeons to help them eliminate these stubborn fat cells and to improve their appearance.
Liposuction procedures are becoming increasingly popular and they are now in the top three cosmetic procedures performed worldwide.
The neck is one of the first places that the ageing process begin to show. The neck begins to sag as the skin starts to lose its elasticity; the result is the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
Weight loss can also make the neck area look aged as you are left with excessive skin around the area.
Genetics can also be a factor in the ageing of the neck.
Smartlipo Laser is one of the most popular treatments offered at the London Medical & Aesthetic Clinic used to lift and tighten the skin around the neck area which results in a younger and fresher appearance.
This pioneering technique from Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi uses the Smartlipo MPX and Triplex systems where a combination of lasers inserted into a small incision under the chin area (1mm) travel under the skin to reach the loose deep fat and the superficial fat laying immediately under the skin’s surface.
It begins to break down the fat cells dissolving them into a liquid. By introducing energy into the lower layer of skin, it creates the process of inflammation and stimulates the patient’s own collagen production which results in firmer skin.
Gentle suction is then used to remove 40-50% of the fat; the rest of the fat is dissolved and drained away by the body’s lymphatic system.
The result is a smoother more toned jaw line and neck area to give a more youthful appearance. Final results can be seen between 4-5 weeks.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi: There are many benefits to the scar-less neck lift. There is no need for aggressive surgery as the technique uses laser light technology to break down stubborn fat cells.
The results are long lasting as the lasers permanently zap away fat then tighten and smooth loose skin.
The thermal effect from using the Smartlipo MPX and Triplex system reduces bleeding and aids a quick recovery. Smartlipo MPX and Triplex goes under the skin rather than through the skin to reach the problem area which eliminates the risk of damaging the skin by burning or overheating it.
There are immediate and natural results with little or no pain or bruising and the patient can return to work 24 hours later.
