Allura® Laser-Assisted Liposuction
Contouring the neck should achieve two main goals:
- Reducing unwanted fullness and heaviness from below the chin.
- Tighten loose skin to restore a sharp angle of the neck and crisp jawline.
Allura®, from Sciton™, is able to achieve both of these goals without anesthesia, lengthy incisions, or prolonged downtime.
Allura® combines cutting edge laser technology with tried-and-true traditional liposuction techniques to contour the neck and achieve lasting rejuvenation.
The procedure involves three key steps
- Carefully liquefying the excess fat in the neck and chin with the Sciton™ Allura® laser probe via minimally invasive techniques.
- Removing the fat from the neck and chin via liposuction.
- Tightening the skin’s deep surface via laser-produced thermal energy to contour below the jawline.
The procedure does not require anesthesia and patients can drive home immediately after. To reduce swelling, patients are asked to wear a compressing dressing overnight. One to three small ports are hidden in the skin creases to allow for laser probe access and to heal imperceptibly. Finally, massaging flowering plant extract Arnica Montana, taking non-steroidal medications like ibuprofen or Tylenol, and icing is helpful the first week to reduce swelling and achieve a rejuvenated result more quickly.

Thank you, Dr. Markey and Irene for being so terrific.
I was referred to Dr. Markey through my internist. My appointment was right on time. Dr. Markey is very personable and makes you feel at ease. He listens to your concerns and, in fact, found that I had cartridge growing in my left nostril that was inhibiting me from breathing correctly. We set up a date for same day surgery. His office team then helped me with scheduling. I messaged Dr. Markey with concerns and he responds right away. I am very glad I found him and would suggest his services to anyone needing a really terrific otolaryngologist. Thank you, Dr. Markey and Irene for being so terrific.
