Fig. 1.) A small “U” shaped incision is made around the earlobe.
Fig. 2.) A “bloodless” dissection is made until the muscles of the face – SMAS and Platysma are identified.
Fig. 3.) A “permanent” suture is placed into the playsma and SMAS muscle.
Fig. 4.) The sutures are then tied close to the earlobe tightening the SMAS and platysma and therefore the jowl and neck area.
Fig. 5.) Excess skin is trimmed and the skin is closed using a microsuture technique.
Fig. 6.) A final result shows improvement in the jaw and neck line.
