If planning a neck and face lift is it a good idea to also have deep FX done while under the anesthetic? (I ask b/c some plastic surgeons do not do deep FX). I know of someone in another state who had the 3 procedures done and results were amazing! Would it make sense to leave the state for it?
Deep FX with Face and Neck Lift
Doctor Answers (1)
Deep FX does produce amazing results and is a complement to the Active FX setting. We commonly perform these in conjuction with face/necklift candidates. The laser is performed either before or after the surgery, as lasering the face in conjuction with a facelift can potentially compromise the blood supply and lead to soft-tissue loss.
Regarding your question, you should be able to find a qualified Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that performs both Active and Deep FX lasers in Michigan. Or perhaps you may consider finding a dermatologist who utilizes this technology.
