HD Lipo Podcast #3 – Jawline and Neck Contouring with VASER Lipo featuring Dr. Arian Mowlavi
Defining High Definition Liposuction of The Jawline and Neck
FF: Welcome back to the HD Lipo podcast. I’m Frank Felker in Washington D.C. joined again today by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arian Mowlavi calling in from Laguna Beach Calif. Dr. Mowlavi thank you as always for joining us.
Dr.M: Thank you for having me Frank.
FF: Today we’re going to talk about jawline and neck contouring and how high definition liposuction is able to create more dramatically beneficial results than traditional liposuction and other techniques in the past. So let’s start with this. When somebody comes to you and they’re thinking that they need a tighter jaw or contoured neck; what is it that they’re experiencing right now. What does the before picture look like.
Dr.M: Sure. So what we’re talking about is the signs of aging that occur on the neck and the jaw line.The patients that come to me they’re like you know doc I can’t stand this.They say that in photos they look like they have no jaw, no neck, or they describe it as a turkey gobble that they’ve developed. We’re talking about 50, 60, and 70 year olds that show up to my office and they want their neckline to be more defined. They don’t want that extra skin in that neck right in the middle where you can see it in the photographs.
Indications for High Definition Liposuction of the Jawline and Neck
FF: Sure. It’s so easy to see that from a profile shot or even straight on it is one of those effects of aging that’s really obvious. And so I can imagine a lot of people are looking to have that fixed if they can. And so about the more advanced and beneficial effects that you’re able to create with HD Lipo versus what you were able to do previously.
Dr.M: Okay sure. So when we look at an aging neck or jaw line what we’re talking about is the extra skin as well as the extra fat. Often it’s fatty too. It’s not just skin. So up to now the only thing you could offer them is if you want to do a minimally invasive procedure you would do liposuction of the neck and you could do that with them awake with a little bit of sedation and it would just take out all the fat. But guess what 90 percent of the patients don’t just have extra fat. They actually have extra skin. So again talking about the scale of contouring we always weigh how much fat you have versus how much extra skin you have. Definitely when we’re talking about a neck and jowl area or that of the jaw line. The scale is leaning on the skin side meaning there is a lot of extra skin.
Traditional Liposuction vs. High Definition Liposuction
FF: So what we’re seeing that’s problematic is excess skin as opposed to excess fat.
Dr. M: Correct. And so traditional liposuction just doesn’t even have a role here. I mean before High-Definition lipo you had to commit yourself to a face and neck lift. And you know I love doing face and neck lifts. If I could do face and neck website all day I would. But what we’re talking about though is a 50 year old or a 60 year old or now even 70 year olds. As you get older you get more conservative and you don’t want to be cut on. And you know the gold standard is the face of necklift right because that’s where you cut out the extra skin. But unfortunately sometimes I have a hard time convincing my patients to commit to such a big surgery. And so until recently I had no other option. I mean you know like pointing a neck that has skin redundancy isn’t going to help things because it might look less bulky but guess what. Once you Lipo the neck that extra skin gathers in the middle. Even worse than before. Now combining high definition liposuction VASER technology with the cool helium plasma skin tightening again has revolutionized our industry with regards to neck and jawline contouring. It’s just amazing again. You know I can give you a lot of stories. I’ll tell you what and probably get me into trouble Frank but I’ll tell you later my father in law actually my step father in law you know he had some medical issues come up recently and so you know he was a what we call a poor surgical candidate. Right. I mean you know nobody was going to agree to let me put him under to tie up his neck. And I mean I’m telling you he’s been complaining about this neck for years ever since I’ve known him. He just hates it. And so when I came across the opportunity to be able to offer him an alternative to a major surgery he was ready to sign up. No hesitation. It didn’t matter that his health wasn’t bad you know but he was a high surgical risk. He was like keep me awake I’ll deal with it just tighten it up a little bit. You know so we brought him in and after another family you know gave me a little bit of heat for this but it was his decision. He’s like just keep me awake and pull off the High-Definition liposuction and that’s all we did. And he got about 90 percent improvement in his consciousness. I mean it’s it’s amazing. So once again we have a situation where the old traditional liposuction is not an option because even if I remove all the fat with the traditional liposuction I still have a layer of superficial fat, so I can’t utilize the cool helium plasma tightening aspect of it and tighten that skin.And this skin is amazing because it’s so thin. When you start administering the cool helium plasma you literally see the skin tighten before your eyes. It’s pretty impressive.
FF: I would love to see that.
Dr. M: We are going to definitely give you some videos over. I wish I could convey this to the listeners and just have them see this. It’s truly amazing.
VASER High Definition Liposuction Results
FF: You know there is one question that changed my mind what was your step father in law’s reaction. How did he react emotionally
Dr. M:Well I mean he was tickled to death.He came in and I gave him what he wanted. And he didn’t have to be cut on. I actually kept him awake because I was scared. I didn’t want to put him under. It was great news. Extremely happy. And I’m still in the family.
FF: Well that’s one measure. We got that you’ve got the results he was looking for, was he pleased with how it worked out?
Dr. M: Extremely pleased. Especially with a problem that’s been nagging him for all these many years to have that taken care of and make it go away. That’s a great blessing.It really is impressive and by no means is it a face and neck lift but it gives you about 80 to 90 percent of the results.
FF:Is that more of a natural final appearance sometimes. Again I can’t speak to your work but we’ve all seen photographs of people who’ve had facelifts that were a little bit overdone. Does this generally have more of a natural effect when it’s done.
Dr. M: Well I mean that’s a good point. But you know when it looks unnatural. Frank we’re talking about the face. The neck really doesn’t look unnatural but you can make better looks when it looks natural when the pulling of a skin against the lips and the eyes is too tight and it looks unnatural. Now let me tell you this is a you know this is the evolving area. Because if I could tidy even more I could potentially someday get to my face and neck lift results. Right. So currently what we do is or what I do is, and it’s evolving as I was telling you, I do about four to five passes with my cool helium plasma on every inch of that skin. Meaning I go through and I burn the skin from underneath and heat it up four to five passes through. And so we’re evolving and we’re learning and so you know as I’ve told you before I’ve never burnt anybody. Right. So far I have had no complications with the cool helium plasma not even a single one. Now I might in the future be able to go six or seven passes and tightened up even more. But what I can assure the listeners at least today with the four or five pass recommendation we are getting 80 to 90 percent of the results of a conventional and traditional face and neck lift.
Side effects and recovery from VASER High definition liposuction
FF: Now how does that compare in a variety of other ways such as side effects and recovery time versus a traditional face and neck lift.
Dr. M: Why I mean it’s a totally different game it’s you know face and neck lift as a surgery where there’s incision lines there’s dissection and the nerves are in danger.You can lose skin because you can get more blood flow. You know the whole gamut of complications that goes with traditional surgery is eliminated by having one poke hole. Sometimes we use a second poke hole underneath the ear that’s hidden. But you know it’s just minimally invasive, it’s so much safer than a traditional face and neck lift.
FF: Amazing. And what about cost comparison?
Dr. M: a significantly less cost because it takes a lot less time. I can do a whole neck in about 35 minutes. To do a face and neck lift takes me about three to four hours, so this is truly amazing.
FF: I mean you and I have talked about a lot of different types of procedures using these new techniques and technologies. But I continue to be amazed at what a win win when it is less invasive, in some cases less expensive, much better results, and less of an issue in terms of recovery and side effects. It’s just a tremendous breakthrough.
Dr. M: It definitely has expanded again talking about my patient demographics it is expanding my practice to even the 80 year olds because it’s easy, there’s no cutting. It’s often they don’t even need anesthesia because it’s easy and they can tolerate it. And so it’s expanded my practice significantly.
Do Your Research About High Definition Liposuction
FF: While that’s a really big deal especially with the aging population in the United States. We’ve talked a lot about different aspects of High Def liposuction relative to jawline and neck contouring. So is there any additional information you want to share before we sign off.
Dr. M: Sure. I mean again I want the listeners to pick a provider appropriately. You know I’ve made it sound like the neck has a cheap shot you know but it doesn’t. You know there’s vital structures in the neck. There’s some very important nerves and vessels.So again you got to pick a provider that has excellent results has proper training. And so the listeners have to do their homework now because this is a more recent breakthrough in technology and technique.
FF: Are there more limited areas where we can find information resources about this.
Dr.M: Probably that is true Frank.The listeners are going to have to work a little harder because they’re going to have providers that are experts in not only VASER technology but also proficient with cool helium plasma skin tightening.And obviously they need to have both of these tools at their disposal. So they’ll just have to search carefully and if they get lost they can always go back to Highdefinitionliposuction.com where the providers there do have these tools at their disposal and have lots of before and afters.
FF: That’s great. And we will include links to these resource sites for the equipment and to high definition liposuction dot.com on the show notes page for this episode of the HD like our podcast Dr. Ari Molavi thank you again for joining us today.
Dr. M: Thank you for having me Frank. I look forward to our next meeting.
FF: Thanks again to Dr. Mowlavi And thank you for listening. We look forward to seeing you again on the next episode of the HD Lipo podcast.
