PRECISION TX™ KNIFE­LESS NECK LIFT It’s been featured on a host of syndicated medical talk shows including “The Dr. Oz Show,” and “The Doctors,” and now – a neck lift procedure that is performed with out a knife.

Dr. James Bartels, a Head and Neck Surgeon and Manchester ­based Otolaryngologist (“Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor”) is one of only a few physicians in the New England area (NH, MA, ME, RI, VT) who is performing the Precision Tx™ neck lift. This is a state­ of ­the­ art procedure that utilizes laser energy delivered deep to the underside of the skin dermis to create a firmer, more defined appearance to the neck and lower face.

Unlike traditional neck lift procedures performed in an operating room, Precision Tx™ is performed under local anesthesia.

A combination of lipo-suction to the neck and the Cynosure Side Laze laser are used to reduce fat and tighten skin laxity of the jawline and neck. This is a surgical procedure and requires several days of down time.

“The Precision Tx™ neck lift has completely revolutionized the cosmetic surgery industry as we know it,” says Dr. Bartels. “Patients not only avoid the risk, downtime and high cost of an open neck and face lift, but they go home the same day with a smoothed and toned lower face and neck area, without scars or stitches.”

With 30 years of experience as an Otolaryngologist and facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Bartels has performed thousands of surgical procedures including rhinoplasty, (cosmetic nasal surgery,) otoplasty (ear reshaping,) facial trauma surgery, and reconstructive procedures of the head and neck . He is a board ­certified physician and surgeon and member of The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Additionally, he is a member of The American Academy of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery. All knife­less neck lifts are performed under The Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic and on site at the Manchester, NH location.
