Smart Lipo For Men

Smart Lipo for men in newport beach

Excess fatty deposits in the chin, neck and cheeks may give the appearance of being overweight even when this is not the case. Particularly in younger men this may be a genetic feature that may not reverse even if it was originally caused by weight gain that is no longer present. This unwanted fat can be removed with a series of mini procedures with small incisions with minimal downtime. Options include smart lipo, micro liposuction, buccal fat extraction. A poorly defined chin and neck structure can sometimes be further improved with a chin implant. Non-surgical options are also available with a series of treatments to dissolve fat for the right candidate.

 

Dr. Stephen Fink, a board certified facial plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, California corrects a double chin in selected male candidate patients by removing excess fatty deposits that are below the skin. Sometimes this is accompanied by firming and shaping the underlying platysma muscle with neck and facelift for more comprehensive rejuvenation.

Candidates for Male Jowl/neck liposuction You are a candidate for liposuction if you have:
  • A Double chin
  • Excess fat in your neck below the skin
  • Lack of pleasing neck and jawline definition without being overweight

Smart lipo technology uses a laser fiber beneath the skin. It creates heat that further stimulates collagen formation and shrinkage of tissues. The healing process that occurs following liposuction in men assists in tightening the skin and underlying tissues. Too much fat removal without the ability to contract can result in loose hanging skin. When the skin is too loose or does not have enough elasticity, a neck and possibly a lower facelift may be recommended. Based on experience with thousands of cases, Dr Stephen Fink can evaluate and determine the best option for your situation.

Dr . Stephen Fink almost always performs jowl and neck liposuction as an outpatient surgical procedure at the Newport Center for Special Surgery. Most patients are comfortable under local anesthesia with sedation though general anesthesia is available. Recovery is faster under local anesthesia and you go home the same day. You will need to have a close friend or family member drive you home and stay with you for the first 24-48 hours.

Botox is a toxin that blocks nerve impulses to muscles. When small quantities are injected in very specific areas, it weakens the activity of the muscles reducing frown lines, wrinkles and furrows. Botox is administered with short fine needles making the injections comfortable for a smoother look. No anesthesia is required and activities are only restricted through the end of the first day. Bruising is not common. Results are evident at 3 days to a week to attain a younger more relaxed appearance for up to 4 months.

Depending on your job requirements, most men return to work in 1-2 weeks. You should wait 3-4 weeks before participating in strenuous activities and exercise. Although much of the results are evident as swelling resolves during the first month, subtle improvements continue for 3-6 months as healing of the deeper tissues continues. Incision scars that are hidden in natural skin creases and under the chin will also fade over time. We will closely follow your progress at regular intervals as gradually your new, younger neck emerges.
