The Ribbon Lift is for patients with very lax platysma muscles, and will be performed with the new improved Veramesh Sling and Seri Sling which integrate within the neck muscles and allows patients to get permanent improvement in the neck contour to remove “wattles” or loose neck skin.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with incisions hidden behind the ear. Please note that patient’s hairstyles do not change with the procedure and this procedure can be performed on both women and men. Patients have been extremely pleased with this minimally invasive Ribbon Lift.
