61. Elastic neck lift with three threads and four safety pins
Although surgical techniques for neck correction yield good immediate post-operative results, they are unable to achieve persistent results over time. Even if the anterior region of the neck is completely dissected and the platysma is manipulated, the medium- and long-term results are often unsatisfactory. Moreover, these procedures are demanding and traumatic; they can also create iatrogenic deformities and sometimes require long post-operative recovery. With the two-tipped Jano needle and the Elasticum thread Korpo, the tissues of the cheeks and neck are not dissected, but simply repositioned under local anesthesia. Here, we present a revolutionary technique of elastic lifting which permanently eliminates the defects of the neck with only two incisions a few millimeters behind the ear lobes, without neck dissection!
