An Innovator in the Field

Dr. Shah is the developer of the Five Layer Neck lift in Chicago, the only procedure that treats all five layers of the neck. As he stated in “Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine,” "Most neck liposuction procedures don't truly lift the neck," Dr. Shah said. "It's the floor of the mouth that falls with age or is genetically lower. With my technique, I can reposition the deeper tissues and allow for more consistently appealing outcomes."

As Dr. Shah points out, as we age, the floor of the mouth, encompassing the base of the tongue, descends, potentially contributing to a heavier neck appearance. But with manipulation of the digastric muscle—a deep neck muscle—to enhance the length and lift of the neck, a deeper healing can occur.

Learn More About the Dr. Shah Difference

To hear more about Dr. Shah’s revolutionary approach, we suggest beginning your journey with a consultation at our Chicago office. There, you can hear about the procedure and the other methods he employs to create a holistically more successful experience. For example, he does not use drains in his approach, instead preferring to use ultrasonic dissectors, which have less thermal spread, making it safer to manipulate soft tissue. They also result in less bleeding.

Furthermore, Dr. Shah uses 3D photography to help in the planning stages, and he’ll also employ ultrasound evaluations to evaluate deep tissue in the office to guide his approach. But beyond these innovative techniques, Dr. Shah also believes this is an excellent opportunity for clients to ask questions and feel empowered and excited to proceed with their procedure.
