Neck Trampoline Lift (Platysmaplasty)
The Trampoline Lift is a technique designed to lift and improve a lax, sagging neck resulting from ageing or inherited through genetics.
This procedure involves the use of five unique surgical tools that elevate and define any soft tissue areas by weaving a suture trampoline underneath the jaw line.
Understanding the procedure:
This method allows the placement of a suture “lattice” similar to a shoelace that spans the entire neck region beneath the jaw line.
This support system is created by weaving suture material under the skin through a series of small punctures. Once the lacing is completed, the suture is tightened and secured, resulting in the lifting of the neck skin and underlying muscles simultaneously.
The lift is created with braided polyester suture (no barbs). Unlike a traditional neck lift, the technique is carried out with minimal incisions, therefore reducing swelling, bruising and scarring.
There is no cutting and repositioning of the muscles involved, which reduces the risk of damage to the nerves and blood vessels of the neck and face. In some cases, the Trampoline Lift may be combined with other facial surgery procedures.
