01. Elastic Face Lift of the cheeks without blunt dissection
Elastic lifting of the cheeks without blunt dissection of the skin is indicated in patients who wish to have facial volumes lifted without extensive incisions and without dissection of the tissues.
Lifting is carried out through small incisions of 4 or 5 mm after a centimetre of the sideburns has been shaved off. Once the incisions have been made, tweezers are used to reach the deep temporal fascia, which is the point of anchorage of the elastic thread. This elastic thread (Elasticum®, Korpo SRL) does not cut into the tissues and becomes an integrated suspensive ligament.
Lifting without blunt dissection is made possible by the two-tipped atraumatic needle (Jano needle®) designed, like the elastic thread itself, by the Capurro Research Group.
