The ribbon lift is a one of a kind, revolutionary simple device that helps improve any drooping of the skin around the neck and give it a neck lift look. We insert this small suture that is flexible and has small teeth on it that grabs at the tissues beneath the skin and pulls upward. Say goodbye to sagging neck skin and the turkey neck look. The ribbon lift helps to take in the sagging area underneath the skin and pull the muscle upward. The device is made of an absorbable material so that the body dissolves the device over time, unlike older thread devices which were permanent.
How does the ribbon lift procedure work?
The platysma muscle is the muscle beneath the skin of the neck that lose strength causing it to become loose and the skin to become loose hanging over it. The ribbon lift is an out-patient procedure that can be done directly in the Aesthetics clinic so there’s no need for any prolonged hospital stay. A small incision is made behind the ear, within the crease of the skin so that scarring is minimal. The ribbon lift suture is placed directly on this muscle and is seamlessly integrated into the muscle.
How long does the ribbon lift last?
This specific ribbon sling that is placed directly on the neck muscle is permanent and can last anywhere from three to five years. Adjustments may need to be made over the years after treatment.
