Does Chin Liposuction Work?

Neck rejuvenation is a much sought after improvement by many people. This is true for both the young and the elderly, ranging from normal weight to those who desire to lose a few pounds. Regardless of one’s personal age and weight, there are many advertised modalities out there, many claiming to be the “best.” So how does one decide what is truly the best option? And while the old adage, “if it sounds too good to be true” is often said, for this discussion, it may have some relevance.
There are many “non-invasive” modalities for neck rejuvenation – ranging from expensive “laser type” units which can freeze the fat (cryolipolysis) to chemical agents that can dissolve the fat. While there is some benefit to these modalities, it is the experience of many patients, that the results are less dramatic than desired, and at times, completely ineffective. Furthermore, for most of these options, several treatment sessions are required to see a difference. On the other range of the spectrum, there is the traditional neck lift procedure (often done in conjunction with a facelift).
While neck lift is a tried and true method for improving the neck contour and profile, it is a major surgery often requiring deep sedation or even general anesthesia with subsequent prolonged recovery and extensive scarring. So is there a right balance of invasiveness with efficacy? One such option may be the procedure offered by Sono Bello: TriSculpt.
TriSculpt is a minimally invasive micro-laser procedure that can permanently improve the neck contour by permanently removing the fat while tightening the skin – all done in about an hour, in a single session with just gentle oral sedation. There is typically only a single small opening through which the entire procedure is conducted. And because there is no use of general anesthesia nor extensive scars to heal, the recovery is often short and more comfortable. Does this sound too good to be true? According to nearly 200,000 patients who have undergone chin lipo, it is true.
