ThermiTight is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure developed and perfected by Dr. Miller himself. It is an FDA approved option that uses thermal energy to tighten the skin around the neck, jowl, and lower face. ThermiTight can help to reduce the appearance of excess fat in the area where your neck and chin connect, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” This procedure will result in a tighter and more youthful appearance, without the need to go under the knife. Dr. Miller is the most experienced and knowledgeable plastic surgeon in the country in the ThermiTight procedure, with patients from even outside the Boston area coming to him to receive this innovative procedure.
The ThermiTight Procedure
Dr. Miller will insert a tiny probe into the treatment area. This probe allows the thermal energy used in the procedure to reach the desired facial tissues. The thermal energy is carefully controlled to maximize results and increase the production of collagen in the area. Collagen is a protein that essentially acts as the cement that holds your skin and facial tissues in the desired places. By producing more collagen, your skin will basically tighten itself. Dr. Miller will use a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable and pain-free during the procedure, but there is no need for general anesthetic with ThermiTight.
Because ThermiTight is a minimally invasive procedure, there will be minimal recovery. At the site where the probe was inserted you may experience some bruising or swelling for a brief time after the procedure, but this will resolve itself quickly. Because a local anesthetic is used, you can expect to need a couple days of downtime after receiving ThermiTight, but you will be back to your normal activity level after this period of rest.
Dr. Miller will work with each one of his patients to develop a treatment plan to give them the look they desire. ThermiTight allows for a natural looking firming of the skin that lasts because your body will continue to produce collagen in the area to maintain a more youthful look. Because Dr. Miller developed the ThermiTight procedure, you will be in the most experienced and knowledgeable hands.
