About Neck Tightening
With aging, the skin of the neck can become loose or sagging, which can affect your confidence level. However, at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery, Dr. James Nachbar provides nonsurgical neck tightening with ThermiTight to treat skin laxity and help to sculpt the neck to create a more youthful appearance. ThermiTight uses controlled thermal energy under the skin to target the deep tissues of the skin to tighten it and stimulate the production of collagen. It is a great option for patients who are wanting tighter skin but do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure. In some cases, Dr. Nachbar may combine ThermiTight with another procedure to increase your overall results of tighter, rejuvenated skin. Contact our Scottsdale, AZ office to learn more about nonsurgical neck tightening procedures.
"Been to this office before and the staff is wonderful. The doctor is great and I love his work."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Apr 26, 2018
"I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Nachbar and his staff. Since his staff were my first and last points of contact, I'll start with them. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. I flew in from out of state for tattoo excision. From the initial contact to walking out the door following my surgical follow-up the day after the procedure, they were kind, polite and accommodating. The smiles and kindness don't feel put on or forced -- his staff seem to be genuinely happy, nice people. Dr. Nachbar was very polite and extremely good at what he did. He gave me a great explanation of what he would do and he was able to exceed my expectations. I had minimal post-surgical pain -- I have actually managed my pain with OTC pain relievers, although he did give me a prescription. Dr. Nachbar was very respectful and treated his staff in a respectful fashion as well. I was very happy with the treatment I received and I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar. I legitimately wish I had known of him and seen him first for excision tattoo removal before spending $2K on laser treatments that had no measurable affect."- E.J. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"It's been 7yrs and my surgery results are still amazing. I get a text from Dr. Nachbar's office every year checking in with me. I can't recommend them highly enough. After my experience there my friend also went in and had a procedure and is extremely happy with her results as well."- D.A. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
"Tummy Tuck - The overall care, skill and follow up by Dr. Nachbar and his staff were outstanding. The same can be said about Greenbaum Surgery Center who did an excellent job.My surgery was done in the morning approx 8:30 a.m and by 5:00 pm I felt very confident that the final result will be great. Dr. Nachbar visited me that night which was very comforting. He's compassionate and highly skillful at his profession."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Sep 06, 2018
"Liposuction - The doctor was extremely nice and made me feel comfortable. Also, the care coordinator/nurse Tracy was so friendly."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Aug 29, 2018
An ideal candidate for nonsurgical neck tightening would be an individual with mild to moderate loose skin on the neck. Dr. Nachbar will consult with patients to evaluate whether a nonsurgical approach will likely be sufficient to obtain their desired results. If the patient has severe sagging skin, such as from significant weight loss, a surgical procedure may be needed to achieve optimal results.
ThermiTight is performed with local anesthesia and requires a single treatment. After making the tiny incisions under local anesthesia and injecting the anesthetic, Dr. Nachbar will insert the radiofrequency probe into the tissue of the treated area via very small incisions. He will then administer a controlled amount of heat through the probe. By applying the heat directly to the tissue, the heating occurs from the inside out. The temperature is monitored and controlled by a computer to ensure safety. In addition, an infrared camera is trained on the neck during the procedure, to ensure that the skin does not become hot enough to cause a burn. After the area has been treated, Dr. Nachbar will gently wrap the area.
What to Expect
Following the treatment, patients may experience some swelling and bruising. Typically, patients can return to their normal daily activities within 24 hours, and Dr. Nachbar will provide further after-care instructions. At your follow-up appointment, Dr. Nachbar will remove your sutures and will assess the healing process. Maximal results take four to six months to develop, and result from the tightening that results from healing of the carefully-controlled burning of the deeper tissue.
