The vertical neck muscles can emerge strongly in the course of life and the skin in the neck area is wrinkled. If there is still a certain tension, an endoscopic neck lift can be attempted.
Below the Chin, 2 cuts are attached, the flabby muscle under the Chin or ears severed, streamlined, and brought in a new position. If necessary, can at the same time also a liposuction or with corrected also jowls. After surgery, applied a pressure bandage to stabilize.
Neck lifting methods
Cut behind the ear
The skin is tightened via a unseen cut behind the ear. Optionally, the neck muscle can be shortened.
Streamlining of the Chin from
The surgeon leads through a 5cm long, horizontal incision under the Chin. The cut is although not obviously visible to recognize but also after a successful treatment of scars. Here too the neck muscle can be shortened optional
Liposuction of the neck and optional skin tightening
Under the Chin, a small incision for the cannula is used for liposuction. The surgeon then removes the excess fat. Should not adequately adapt after the procedure the skin a skin tightening must be performed.
SMAS lift (superficial musculo Aponeurotic system-lift)
The superficial connective tissue (SMAS) and the underlying layer resolved from each other. The SMAS tissue is tightened and then re-attached. When including the connective tissue is tightened, the effect of the Hautstaffung is usually natural, as if just excess skin is removed. Whether one is suitable for the procedure you can determine the best within the framework of the preliminary investigations. With the correction of the SMAS, the face can be particularly effective lifts, it is raised (face lifting), rather than only to be streamlined (Rhytidectomy). Lifting means that the skin is pulled almost backwards. This tightens the skin and often to unnatural-looking results. The tightening with the SMAS method prevents an excessive tension on the skin and provides for a natural, overswing result. Also after surgery, the expression of the face is still authentic and of course, because small mimic wrinkles are preserved.
MACS-lift (minimal access cranial suspension-lift)
With a minimal incision firming threads are inserted in the framework of the intervention in the skin, to tighten the face and neck. The result of the MACS lift is usually very natural, but do not last long. Many of the major face lifts are based on outdated technology and are feasible even for less experienced doctors. But all soft -, bio -, S -, and similar lifting achieve no lasting effect, because they are based mainly on the method to stretch the skin. One of the most important properties of the skin's elasticity and so she sooner or later will yield to the tension built up with the result that the effect can be to. Drawback: strong pulling of the skin produces an unnatural facial expressions.
