Face Neck 3D Micro Lipo
Conveniently located to serve San Jose, CA
Based on 20-plus years of experience, Dr. Jane has created a unique liposculpting technique called 3-D Micro Liposuction™ for the most natural-looking liposuction result without any stigma of plastic surgery or scar. Utilizing modern liposuction tools such as Syringe Lipo, Vaserlipo™, CO2 Laser Lipo™, or Microaire PAL™ are all necessary to achieve good results depending on each patiet’s need. However, the surgeon’s experience and skill are the most contributing factors to the desired outcome. 3-D (3 depths and 3 directions) Micro Liposuction™ is a surgical method that Dr. Jane has developed to produce beautiful under the chin and lower face contours and skin tightening without any large scars. THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR FOR ALL KINDS OF LIPOSUCTION IS NOT SO MUCH WHAT IS REMOVED BUT WHAT IS LEFT BEHIND.
Especiallly for neck and lower face, it requires the finest technique and Dr. Jane calculates how many mls of numbing and how many mls of suctioning out for the best tightening and slimming effects. Not too much, not too less. In order to do so, Dr. Jane uses the syringe liposculpture technique which is a method that can reshape the lower face and the neck by removing localized fat deposits and tightening skin with 3D technique.
3 D Micro Lipo of the lower face and neck (under the chin) is very effective in proper candidates. This is usually the younger patient and the thicker skin with heavy fat deposits and without significant excess skin the better result. In these patients, removing some of the excess fat by conservative liposuction can make a huge difference in the patient’s profile. When patients have excess skin, Dr. Jane combines with co2 laser resurfacing with Encore Deep FX, fractionated RF (Radiofrequency), and/or Ultherapy. It is important to remember that face and neck liposuction is not the solution for obesity but rather for genetic fat deposits that are resistant to generalized weight loss
Benefits of 3D Micro Lipo™ under Local Anesthesia:
Superior Results were Achieved through 3 depths and 3 directions.
3 Depths: Deep Layer Fat, Mid Layer Fat, and Upper Layer Fat are taken out evenly (Superficial Dermal Fat has to be reserved to prevent the skin dimpling)
3 Directions: CrissCross and Diagonal Direction for a More Even Result
Superficial Skin Tightening with Fractional CO2 Laser, Vaser, or Ultherapy

The Jenesis Principles for Successful 3D Micro Lipo™
In a good health with a stable body weight but areas of stubborn fat that you can not remove by exercise and diet alone
At your initial consultation, a comprehensive examination and assessment will be done which includes assessing patterns of fat deposition between the subcutaneous and internal fat layers, skin laxity and tone, skin thickness, and musculofascial laxity to determine whether you are a good candidate for 3D Micro Liposuction™
On Pre-operation day, your blood work will be checked by Dr. Jane and you will receive a detailed examination and assessment of fat deposits we will discuss in detail the areas where you are concerned. We will also discuss post-operative care at home and a diet and exercise program which should be started after 3D Micro Liposuction™. We will record the pre-operative weight, body measurements, and photographs
One night before surgery, you will start an antibiotic that has been prescribed by our office.
On the morning of surgery day, we recommend you eat something light.
On your surgery day, topographic markings will be done in the upright position and bent position with and without muscle contraction.
3D liposuction technique will be performed utilizing the super-wet technique, with no more than 8% of total body weight to be liposuctioned to minimize blood loss.
To ensure the most natural-looking results, microcannulas less than 1.2 mm in diameter will be used in multiple layers in a gentle criss-cross 3-directional technique while avoiding liposuctioning too close to the dermis and muscle
A well-fitting compression garment should be worn post-operatively for the entire prescribed period
To prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT or blood clots), early mobilization is recommended
Post-operative appointments at time points of 1 day after, 1-week after, and 8 weeks, 12 weeks are mandatory to monitor the course of post-operative recovery
Additional skin tighteing Laser and RF treatments can be started 2 weeks after the surgery for best results without complication
Educating patients about post-operative lifestyle modifications ensure that the results of liposuction will be permanent.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who wants to improve the appearance of a “double chin” or fullness underneath the chin
Refines the jawline to enhance the chin or bring balance to facial features
Patients with good skin tone will typically see the best results
Buccal Fat Pad Removal can be done at the same time for slimmer mid face like a model.
Buccal fat reduction is so popular these days. All humans have walnut sized collections of facial fat called the Buccal Fat Pads that lie in the cheek. In patients that desire to have their face “slimmed” the buccal fat pads can be reduced at the same time (or in place of) the liposuction. This is done by making a small incision inside the mouth, next to the wisdom teeth and the fat pad is teased out of its position and conservatively reduced.
Many patients with submental fat also have a retrusive profile from a weak chin. By removing some of the chin and neck fat with liposuction and simultaneously placing a chin implant, the result is made better than doing either procedure by itself. Non surgical chin implant can be combined with 3D Neck Lipo to further enhance lower face contour. Bellafill is the best option for non surgical chin augmentation. It lasts 3-6 years.
If you have more skin than fat, the surgical necklift is better. You can have a consultation with Dr. Jane for more detail.
Recovery time after 3D Neck Lipo will depend on the individual. Typically, patients return to daily activities, including a return to work, within 2-5 days after surgery. Expect your neck to feel tight for a few weeks, and know that bruising and swelling are normal. These effects should subside gradually, with visible bruising typically gone after the first week, and that “tight” feeling remaining for up to several weeks.
Other Non-Surgical Neck Contouring Procedures can be done alone or combine with 3D Neck Lipo
Botox is also very effective at temporarily treating dynamic wrinkles in the neck. Dr. Jane will inject Botox into the platysma band of muscles (the muscles that stand out when you flex your neck) to reduce the appearance of turkey neck and define the jaw.
Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite can be injected into the Jaw to make better side profile especially for men. Or very soft filler such as Belotero to thicken the neck skin for smooth appearance. Dermal filler neck lifts, also known as “liquid neck lifts,” last for approximately 6-12 months, depending on the brand of filler. Because these fillers encourage collagen production, patients can expect to notice smoother, more youthful-looking neck skin in the months following their injections.
Kybella is an injectable formula comprised of deoxycholic acid that eliminates fat under the chin and in the upper neck. Kybella is often used to treat patients struggling with a “double chin,” a notoriously difficult area to sculpt without liposuction. Similar to liposuction, fat cells that are treated with Kybella will no longer be able to store fat, meaning you can expect to keep weight off in this area for good. For optimal results, most cosmetic surgeons recommend 4-6 Kybella treatments spaced 1 month apart. Results typically appear 4-6 weeks after your first injection.
RF(Radio Frequency) PRO
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create “micro-injuries” in the skin to increase collagen & elastin and trigger fibroblast cell growth. Microneedling can quickly improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, and more on the neck and décolletage with little-to-no downtime. Popular RF PRO includes Secret Fractional RF and Agnes Precision RF.
Ultherapy is a newer technology that relies on ultrasound energy to tighten skin. When applied to the neck, Ultherapy can lift and tighten deep layers of skin and underlying muscles. Ultherapy is a great way to preview the results of a surgical neck lift to see if you want to pursue the procedure later on. Most patients see a noticeable difference in their skin quality 2-3 months after their Ultherapy treatment. Similar to other non-surgical skincare treatments, Ultherapy stimulates collagen production in the skin for a noticeably smoother, younger-looking neck. Learn more about Ultherapy »
Depp FX is Fractional CO2 laser treatment. Fractional CO2 lasers have been proven to improve skin quality and skin tone in the neck with long-lasting results. Fractional CO2 lasers are considered the gold-standard for skin resurfacing because of their effectiveness in treating advanced signs of skin aging. By heating skin from deep below its surface, fractional CO2 lasers can increase collagen in the neck without damaging surrounding tissues. And because they’re fractional—meaning the laser is dispersed across the treated skin in “fractions”—these lasers require minimal downtime.
