To avoid complications, patients are required to quit smoking for one week prior to treatment. Local anesthesia is used, and the surgery takes around 1 hour to complete. Sagging skin, or “turkey wattles”, develop when the platysma muscles become weak with age. The goal of the ribbon lift is to reinforce these muscles so that they can hold back the surrounding skin.
To accomplish this, a suture is positioned like a sling beneath the skin of the upper neck. It's inserted via small incisions behind the ears. They're inconspicuously placed between skin folds, or within the hairline, to keep the entry points hidden. Loose skin is lifted up and tightened back when the device is inserted. It's lined with small studs which extend into deep muscle tissues, stimulating collagen growth. This further strengthens the platysma muscle to enable longer-lasting results.
