Neck Lift Surgery
A new technique for cosmetic neck surgery – the iGuide® Surgical Suture System. It is designed to help patients reduce sagging under the chin area. This revolutionary procedure can lift and support neck tissue in a minimally invasive manner.
Ideal candidates for this procedure are those who traditionally have a full upper neck or patients who need a “touch up” to correct sagging after a facial procedure or neck liposuction. In addition, younger individuals who experience sagging neck tissue due to genetics are typically excellent candidates for this procedure. The iGuide® procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenating procedures.
How is the iGuide® Surgical Suture System performed?
Utilizing five unique surgical tools, the surgeon can elevate and define the soft tissues of the neck by creating a trampoline-like suture. This procedure may be performed with only local anesthesia. Through a series of small needle incisions, a continuous suture is used to support and elevate the skin, soft tissue, and muscle all as one. The iGuide® eliminates the need to cut and reposition the muscles and avoids possibly damaging the nerves and blood vessels of the neck and face.
Post-surgery, patients may have minimal swelling and bruising, and patients are able to return to work within a few days. Physical exercise may be resumed in approximately one to two weeks.
Further details regarding the iGuide® can be obtained during an initial consultation with Dr. Daube.
