At the plastic surgery office of Dr. Dean Kane in Baltimore, we are seeing a growing number of patients who are desiring a minimally invasive approach to thinning and contouring their lower faces, jowls and neck as well as desiring a tightening of the skin laxity of these same areas.
Dr. Kane uses a unique combination of liposuction and ThermiTight using Radio Frequency to remove excess thickness of the face and provide tightening at the same time. Dr. Kane uses very small liposuction cannulas to remove the excess fat along the jawline, jowls and neck then follows this with ThermiTight RF. ThermiTight RF uses a probe that is inserted under the skin to emit energy waves to stimulate collagen and elastin that will provide a tightening of the skin laxity.
With Dr. Kane’s unique technique and skill in lipocontouring, he can highlight the cheeks and develop a defined model-like appearance to the face. The final results take approximately 3 months to see these improvements.
This procedure can be done under oral sedation and Pronox which is a laughing gas. Patients will still need to have someone drive them to the office and take them home due to the oral sedation. There is swelling from 1 to 2 weeks and a face support garment should be worn for the first 4-5 days for 24 hours and then when at home and at night while sleeping for 2 weeks.
