Dr. Jack Zamora is the world's first surgeon to implement plasma energy in neck and facelift procedures.
Dr. Zamora's revolutionary procedure is based on a combination of facial rejuvenation technologies that utilize laser energy and his proprietary J-Plazty technique. Facelift procedures have evolved from the traditional full face lift with large incisions in front and behind the ears to the J-Plazty Lift minimally invasive laser lift. Dr. Zamora is able to lift and tighten skin through the lower face and neck, while reducing jowls and adding definition to the jawline. Unlike traditional face and neck lifts, the J-Plazty technique uses a combination of laser and plasma energies, which promote collagen building and cellular rejuvenation, leading to firmer and younger looking skin.
- Experience greater results with less surgery
- Convenient in-office procedure
- Takes less than two hours
- Done with local anesthesia
- Virtually no visible incisions
WHAT IS THE J-PLASTY LIFT?
Dr. Zamora’s J-Plazty technique makes us look years younger by utilizing laser and plasma energies which are used to remove fat and instantly tighten skin. To do this, tiny incisions are made under the chin and by the ears and the laser is gently threaded under the skin where the energy safely and effectively removes fat while tightening the treated area. The heat actually stimulates your body’s own natural healing ability and starts building new collagen. The energy and heat is monitored in real-time with a temperature control system, which offers patients the highest level of safety. Depending on the level of lift and tightening needed, Dr. Zamora will use a custom suture placement through the mid face to achieve the most natural look. Adipose stem cells can also be injected to add youthful volume back to the face. The entire procedure takes about an hour and then you are back home.
WHAT IS PLASMA ENERGY?
Plasma energy is truly the fourth state of matter. We are familiar with liquids, gases, and solids and now plasma. Plasma energy replaces traditional laser energy such as Co2 laser by being able to deliver a more precise and controlled thermal energy. Just like the higher quality higher definition images of new TVs, plasma energy is able to give a higher quality effect in tightening skin and reducing fine lines while using less energy than a traditional Co2 laser. Plasma is not a laser and is able to reach only a fraction (120 degrees Celsius) of the temperature of traditional Co2 (800 degrees Celsius), while delivering twice the result. The secret lies within the helium molecule that is electrified which thereby creates the plasma energy.
Our team at Jack Zamora MD Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetics will assist you with all of the information you need for exceptional results with your J-Plazty Lift. Dr. Zamora will address all of your concerns ahead of time and discuss what your desired results are. He will also explain his techniques and anesthesia options.Prior to your procedure, Dr. Zamora recommends you discontinue the use of products containing aspirin, garlic, ginseng, green tea and vitamin E for two weeks, as they may increase the risk of bruising.
Dr. Zamora can perform your J-Plazty Lift very simply as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Zamora will mark the areas to be treated, then make a couple of very small incisions. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area and then the laser is threaded through a small tube and into the incision site. Using a gentle heat, the laser increases collagen production which improves your skin elasticity and naturally thickens your skin. Next, the plasma energy is used for instant tightening of the skin and incredible cellular rejuvenation. Dr. Zamora's proprietary technique includes an invisible stitch that is threaded into the SMAS layer of the facial tissue. While the stitch will dissolve, the scar tissue left behind will keep the lift Dr. Zamora created in place. If you decide to include your own adipose stem cells with your J-Plazty procedure, Dr. Zamora and his team inject the stem cells throughout the face to restore volume. The actual procedure is about 60-minutes. A compression head garment is applied and worn for three days after the procedure.
POST TREATMENT INFORMATION
Dr. Zamora and his team will check in with you after your procedure. It is normal for your face and neck to feel a bit tight or sore after the procedure. Minor discomfort can be treated with over the counter Tylenol. However, if your pain is unbearable, please call our Cometic Surgery office at 781.871.4200 immediately. Initial swelling and bruising can take one to two weeks to resolve. Bruising varies from person to person; it reaches its peak during the first week. The compression head garment should be worn every night for six weeks after your procedure. The full results of the J-Plazty Lift are dependent on your body's own natural collagen production and can take several months to become stable, but early results are immediate and continue to improve as your body continues to heal.
