The steps involved are:
Step 1: You will take valium (optional) to help relax and an antibiotic
Step 2: The skin is cleaned with an antiseptic
Step 3: With a very small needle, the skin is numbed at three sites for the incisions (click on the link below to see where these incisions are). With another needle. 2 millimeter incisions are made
Step 4: The tumescent solution is infused into the neck for numbing and control of bruising.
Step 5: The laser is used to melt the fat and help tighten the skin.
Step 6: A liposuction cannuli is used to remove the fat
If you have a lot of skin laxity, Dr. Khalifeh may recommend you consider a minifacelift or neck lift.
