Editorial Review


  • Relatively painless, non-surgical procedure.
  • Procedure can be done in about an hour.
  • Much easier than liposuction. Skin tightening is seen with this treatment as well.
  • Easy for staff and patients, zero recovery.


  • Need enough chin fat to be able to have suction maintained around the applicator.
  • Can take more than one treatment.
  • Doesn't treat neck sagging without fat. so many patients want a non-surgical approach for the "turkey neck" but this is not the answer.

Things You should know:

  • There will be a little swelling initially but will subside within 24-48 hours.
  • Usually, no more than two sessions are required.
  • Not a weight loss treatment.

Most Common Use Cases:

  • Neck and small localized fat areas.
  • Patients with a moderate amount of fat under the chin are ideal. Less laxity of skin is best.
  • Best for patients from their 20s into their 50s.

Physician Testimonials

"Ideal for minimal to moderate amount of sub-mental fat with or without a bit of skin laxity. Not a replacement for a neck lift or for sagging skin without fat. Slight discomfort for the first few minutes. No needles, no anesthetic, no downtime. Few side effects. No swelling, bruising or discomfort afterward. Results take two months to see and four months for maximum benefit. Two applicators on each visit suit most patients. Usually, one or two visits needed to achieve best results two months apart." -  Jeffrey Dover M.D.

 "The patient needs proper anatomy. The procedure can take more than one treatment and can take a few months to see results. Often two applicators work better than one in midline.: - Anonymous
