Skin Tightening Surgery
in Bellevue, WA
Bellevue Cosmetic Surgeon Performing Neck Lifts
After you have lost a significant amount of weight or due to the natural aging process, it is normal to have a certain amount of loose skin on your body. Loose skin is not something which can be targeted with exercise, but a skin tightening procedure may be the answer.
At A-To-Zen Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetics, our Bellevue plastic surgery center, we offer an advanced form of cosmetic surgery known as ThermiTight® skin tightening. This procedure is specifically targeted to the loose skin which exists on the neck that is not quite enough to require a neck lift or full surgical facelift. This procedure can be targeted to any area of the body where loose skin exists. Common areas of treatment include the chin/neck, underarms, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen.
What Is ThermiTight® Skin Tightening?
The purpose of the Bellevue ThermiTight® skin tightening procedure is to eliminate a small amount of loose skin on the neck. ThermiTight® skin tightening uses a special Thermi RF probe which works to cause tissue shrinkage by targeting energy to your neck. Every person is different, but many of our patients find that they see results right away. Full results typically take about 12 weeks to be visible.
There are a few different benefits of this procedure, including:
- It requires only a small incision, but it is minimally invasive.
- It does not require a significant amount of downtime.
- It is performed under local anesthesia.
- It only takes about 30-40 minutes.
Providing Minimally-Invasive Procedures
We want to ensure that you have realistic expectations about what results you will see with the ThermiTight® skin tightening procedure. It is not a replacement for a surgical neck lift but can be a first step if you are hoping to achieve a tighter neck. During your initial consultation, you can discuss your needs with our Bellevue Board Certified cosmetic surgeon and determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
