Dr. Jack Zamora is the world's first surgeon to implement plasma energy in neck and facelift procedures giving patients instant tightening and improving skin laxity.
Dr. Zamora's revolutionary J-Plazty procedure is a combination of facial rejuvenation technologies utilizing VASER® and plasma energy. Skin is instantly lifted and tightened, jowls are reduced, and the neck and jawline are defined in a safe and convenient outpatient procedure without general anesthesia. Now, J-Plazty Body is able to create the same incredible skin tightening on the upper and lower abdomen, flanks and thighs.
- Experience greater results with less surgery
- Convenient in-office procedure
- Instant results
- Done with local anesthesia
- Virtually no visible incisions
WHAt is J-PLAZTY?
Unlike traditional facelifts which have large incisions and long recovery, Dr. Zamora’s J-Plazty technique uses tiny incisions made under the chin and by the ears and the VASER® is gently threaded under the skin where the ultrasound energy safely and effectively breaks up the fat for removal while releasing the skin in the treated area. The heat actually stimulates your body’s own natural healing ability and starts building new collagen. The energy is monitored in real-time which offers patients the highest level of safety. Dr. Zamora then uses plasma energy beneath the skin to sculpt and tighten loose skin on the jawline and neck. An invisible suture is placed within the SMAS facial muscle to help maintain lift and achieve a natural looking result. FAMI 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. With just days of downtime, the J-Plazty procedure allows patients to be back to their normal routines much faster than a traditional facelift. Results are seen immediately and continue to improve as your body continues to heal.
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. 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 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 VASER® is threaded through a small port and into the incision site. Using ultrasound energy, the fat tissue and skin are released. Excess fat is now easily removed to reduce any fullness and skin is ready for treatment with the plasma energy. Dr. Zamora then uses plasma energy under the skin to create instant tightening of the treated area and encourages 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 FAMI Adipose Stem Cells with your J-Plazty procedure, Dr. Zamora and his team inject the stem cells throughout the face to restore volume. 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 303-780-7377 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 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.
