Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of rotational fractional resection (RFR) to improve neck contouring. RFR is used to remove loose skin and fat.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Skin Laxity Lipodystrophy Device: Rotational fractional resection Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective, multi-center, single-arm (non-randomized), interventional cohort, non-significant risk (NSR) study designed to investigate the efficacy and safety of Rotational Fractional Resection (skin resection and focal lipectomy) in patients with mild to moderate submental fat and mild to moderate submental skin laxity. The total duration of study participation for each subject is approximately up to 7 months for each subject from the screening visit to the exit visit. The follow-up period will be approximately 6 months after the procedure. Eligible subjects will complete a total of 8 study visits: screening, procedure, and follow-up visits at 1, 7, 14, 30, 90 and 180 days post-procedure.
