Liposuction isn't just for belly fat and love handles, although it can slim those areas with ease. Thanks to new laser-assisted technology, the benefits of liposuction can be achieved for smaller areas such as the face and chin. Lipotherme™ laser lipolysis (liposuction) in Atlanta, Georgia from Dr. Theresa M. Jarmuz can reduce the appearance of a double chin or act as a "mini face lift" of sorts by tightening the cheeks and lower face. In addition, Dr. Jarmuz can use the Lipotherme procedure to give you the body-sculpting results - such as slimmer thighs and a smoother midsection - more commonly associated with liposuction.
Dr. Jarmuz is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon offering a variety of surgical and minimally-invasive facial cosmetic procedures. To learn more about Lipotherme, request your consultation with Dr. Jarmuz online or call her office at (404) 233-3937.
Meet Theresa M. Jarmuz, M.D.
A double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jarmuz exceeds expectations for patient care & results.
Lipotherme laser liposuction can treat common concerns like a double chin. Our Atlanta, GA patients also choose this procedure to address cheeks, the lower face, and larger body areas such as thighs or love handles. No matter which area Lipotherme is being used to treat, the procedure is performed right in Dr. Jarmuz's office under local anesthesia (general anesthesia is usually not necessary). A tiny tube (called a "cannula") will be inserted into the area of unwanted fat. A laser attached to the cannula will melt fat as it moves back and forth. The fat will be removed permanently and skin will appear tighter.
Dr. Jarmuz will help determine if Lipotherme could give you the kind of results you're looking for. If facial liposuction with Lipotherme isn't the right procedure for you, she also performs neck lift surgery to reduce neck bands and fat deposits under the chin. For improvement in the mid to lower face, Dr. Jarmuz may suggest face lift surgery.
