The Specifics


What is PrecisionTx®?

PrecisionTx® is a fat reduction and skin tightening solution for the chin, neck, and jawline. This minimally invasive outpatient procedure uses unidirectional laser energy to precisely target stubborn fat deposits for emulsification and removal (similar to some liposuction techniques), while also encouraging collagen production in areas of sagging and loose skin. PrecisionTx® is specifically intended for use in the submental area to correct a double chin, or poor contours of the lower face, jowls, and neck.

What cosmetic concerns does PrecisionTx® treat?

  1. Neck & Jaw Definition: Laser energy emulsifies fat deposits and tightens loose skin in the neck and jaw for improved contours and definition.

Who is the ideal candidate for a PrecisionTx® procedure?

The ideal candidate for PrecisionTx® is at a stable weight, and desires a minimally invasive procedure to correct mild sagging and excess fat in the face and neck. PrecisionTx® is not recommended for those at an unhealthy or unstable weight, or those with more severe facial skin sagging who may require a more invasive procedure.

What is the average recovery associated with a PrecisionTx® procedure?

Most patients experience two weeks of acute side effects and downtime following a PrecisionTx® treatment. Bruising, soreness, and swelling will lessen over two weeks, however, swelling may persist for six weeks or longer. A compression garment will be worn over the face and neck for the first two weeks to aid healing and reduce swelling.

What are the potential side effects of a PrecisionTx® procedure?

Possible side effects following a PrecisionTx® treatment include numbness, redness, swelling, discomfort, muscle soreness, and bruising.

What can someone expect from the results of a PrecisionTx® procedure?

The results of PrecisionTx® are immediately visible following the procedure, although they will continue to evolve as swelling subsides. Full effects of the PrecisionTx® are seen six to 12 months after the cosmetic procedure.

What is the average cost of a PrecisionTx® procedure?

A PrecisionTx® procedure can cost anywhere from $2,400 to $5,000. The actual cost of PrecisionTx® is dependent upon location, board certified plastic surgeon, and length and involvement of the plastic surgery.
