Imagine getting rid of the loose skin from under your neck, without the extensive recovery time of surgery. It's now a reality thanks to a combination of SmartLipo and a Skin Tightening laser device. The Mini Neck Shrink Lift is helping patients see a dramatic improvement without the need for general anesthesia. You can see the procedure performed this Friday on The Doctors.
The patient on the show is Jordana, a 33 year-old pinup model who says "Look at my neck; my neck is saying this is an old person."
Dr. Thomas Barnes' Lunchtime Neck Lift performed on 'The Doctors'
Dr. Thomas Barnes developed the Mini Neck Shrink Lift and says that patients simply don't want to go through surgery. "Going under the knife is not the first choice any more," according to Dr. Barnes. "My mini face & body procedures can have a huge impact on improving people's lives with no downtime, less expense and usually done awake."
For this procedure, Dr. Barnes first numbs the area with local anesthetic and then removes excess fat under the chin with the SmartLipo laser lipo device. Following the fat removal, he treats the area with a laser device to improve tightening for a smooth contour. The Mini Neck ShrinkLift is fast, only taking about 30 minutes in most cases, and patients have very little downtime.
A similar treatment can be performed on nearly any other area of the body including the stomach, upper arms and thighs. "Smaller procedures can get you back to work and normal activities faster," says Dr. Barnes. "We can eliminate that last stubborn inch or two that won't respond to diet and exercise."
Dr. Barnes tells AmericanHealthandBeauty.com "The Doctors is a great show for educating people about safer procedures that can have a big impact on their lives."
Dr. Barnes has performed other shrink lift procedures on television including his "Tummy Shrinklift" on the Today Show and Good Day LA.
