Have you ever wondered how celebrities manage to look good at any age? Recently, Hollywood legend Jane Fonda was a guest on The Ellen Show and she did not look a day over 60. Aside from living a healthy lifestyle – she does Pilates and eats healthy – she also admitted to undergoing several aesthetic surgery procedures.

Unlike the face or the eyes, the neck is a less popular area among most patients when it comes to aesthetic procedures. However, it is one of the first areas to show your age. Image-conscious celebrities treat think sagging skin and neck wrinkles to complement their facelifts. Neck liposuction with the Necktite radiofrequency device is an easy and quick single procedure that results in a sculpted jawline and tighter neck.

With a beautiful office strategically located in Newport Beach, the go-to place for Orange County’s cosmetic surgeries, Dr. Furze is accustomed to treating patients that are looking to get a ‘Hollywood touch up’.

Hailed as one of OC’s most trusted cosmetic surgery specialists, Dr. Furze has helped countless patients tone their neck area through minimally-invasive liposuction. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Furze has the skill set, state of the art equipment and years of experience to help patients identify and implement the best approach for their problem area.

Contrary to popular belief, neck liposuction isn’t only for older patients. Many men and women in their 30s are also seeking out Dr. Furze to remove excess neck fat due to genetics or weight fluctuations. It can be done as a single procedure or in combination with a facelift in order to make the change more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing.

Aside from removing excess fat from the neck area, the Necktite (also called Facetite) procedure will also:

  • Remove pesky double chins
  • Tone and smooth the chin and neck area
  • Define the jawline
  • Tighten loose skin
  • Significantly improve the appearance of deep creases

How is it performed?

During a neck liposuction and lift with Necktite, Dr. Furze applies radiofequency waves to heat up the neck area externally and internally. The procedure involves making one or two tiny incisions, depending on Dr. Furze’s assessment of your needs. These incisions are done strategically, so that they wouldn’t be visible to the untrained eye. A tube called a cannula will be inserted through the incision and used to emit radiofrequency waves. The fat is liquefied and sucked out with a fine cannula. Dr. Furze reshapes and tightens the neck and jawline. When the skin heals, you will notice a tighter, younger neck and jawline area. Some of the results are visible immediately after the procedure, but your neck will look best starting at 3-6 months after the procedure.

What’s the recovery like?

You will be able to return home right after the procedure. Some swelling and mild bruising around the area may be present, both of which are perfectly normal. You will be wearing a chinstrap for a few days to help with the swelling and to help maintain the new shape of your chin – no celebrity discount here. A follow up with Dr. Furze will be done a week after your surgery.
