Look Your Best in the New Year!
Q&A with Dr. Brazil
Q. What is body contouring and will it help with my sagging jaw line and droopy neck skin?
A. Yes, as people age, they commonly notice sagging skin and prominent fat pads in the jowls, neck, arms, thighs, buttocks and abdomen, which are often resistant to aggressive dieting and exercise. We treat this with one of our specialties called “body contouring.” A first step may involve removing extra fat with liposuction. This procedure is done with a tiny canula and small hidden incisions and the post-operation downtime is short. Liposuction alone triggers skin tightening, and this effect is enhanced with a single Thermage treatment done within two months to further tighten and recontour. Thermage involves a device that creates deeply penetrating radio frequency waves. This energy heats fibrous tissues up to two inches below the skin surface, safely and effectively lifting and tapering loose skin, with or without liposuction. We’re excited to offer this new Thermage technology that will also improve the contours of your tummy, thighs and buttocks. Our cosmetic consultations are always complimentary, so find out how we can help you look your best.
