There are two problems encountered in the neck region. Some patients come to the office to have the excess fat stored under their chin, a double chin, removed. Others have loose skin hanging low under the chin, commonly called a turkey neck. While both of these issues are easy to resolve, they require different procedures.
As we age, our skin loses tone and ultimately sags. However, skin frequently has tremendous ability to retract into a more youthful position. Even some relatively young patients prematurely age in the neck because of a laxity of the neck muscle and accumulation of fat in this area. Liposuction can often relieve the neck area of unwanted fat. Dr DeRosa may recommend a combination of liposuction with tightening of the neck muscle as well to give a longer lasting result.

Take the next step to a fresher more youthful appearance without the look of being done. PrecisionTx delivers laser energy under the skin to treat fat and tighten tissue**. This one time treatment offers minimal downtime and increases collagen production which improves skin elasticity, thickness and texture.
How does it work?
PrecisionTx is a minimally invasive procedure to treat small areas of fat in areas such as the lower face and neck or arms. Through a small incision a very thin tube containing the PrecisionTx laser fiber is inserted and delivers thermal energy directly to the treatment area.
