As we age, we begin finding excessive collections of fat throughout the neck and body. This happens for a variety of reasons, such as; problems with thyroids and lack of exercise. When there are large deposits of subdermal adipose (fat), there are options for removal.
At BNG Aesthetics Skin & Laser Center we offer several treatment options for treating excessive body and neck fat. We always encourage healthy lifestyles and diet modifications.
ThermiTight™ is a micro-invasive procedure that used controlled thermal energy below the skin to minimize and reverse the effects of aging on your body and face. ThermiTight™ uses radiofrequency energy and applies it directly to your troubled spots which cause an immediate shrinking effect.
This procedure is performed under local anesthetic and takes just under an hour. Recovery is quick, requiring only 24 hours of rest. This single treatment solution is a great way to reduce the fat within the body and neck.
SmartLipo™ laser-assisted liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a technique known as "laser lipolysis" to destroy fat cells using laser energy. Laser-assisted liposuction helps to reduce fat deposits and break up some of the fibrous bands, thereby smoothing the skin and eliminating or reducing skin dimples.
The procedure is performed by introducing a fine fiber-optic probe under the skin which delivers laser energy that breaks up and liquefies fat cells. The excess fat is suctioned out via a small cannula - a thin tube used to remove liquefied fat. Once the excess fat is removed, patients report a reduced appearance of cellulite. Smart Lipo laser-assisted liposuction also has the added benefit of stimulating new collagen growth inside the connective tissues; this helps to tighten the skin thereby farther reducing skin dimpling. It can be utilized alone to treat smaller areas of fat, such as below the chin and, neck or in combination with liposuction to remove larger areas of fat such as in the neck, abdomen, hips and thighs.
Smart Lipo is performed under local anesthesia. During the procedure, there is minimal discomfort. After the anesthesia has worn off, discomfort is described as aches and pains associated with a vigorous workout. The recovery time is much faster with less bruising and less swelling compared to traditional liposuction.
