Neck Skin Tightening Results Before and After Images

Dr. Hakimi’s method induces controlled fractional changes to the dermis creating new elastin, collagen. His instrument has a direct real-time temperature and impedance feedback system. This allows him to control energy delivery during deep dermal heating. It also provides a uniform treatment of the skin and dermis. This external method can be used to treat the crepe skin, or to promote collagen synthesis and thus “preventing” the natural progress of facial aging.

Dr. Hakimi combines the safest cutting-edge technologies to help patients achieve their goals without a knife. Using a combination of different new technologies, he can tighten the skin without surgical scars. These new technologies provide better than 40% skin tightening along with improvement of the “crepe” appearance of the skin. Different areas including lower face, neck, abdomen, thighs, arms, back and bra rolls can be treated with this evolutionary method.

Internal radio frequency energy has been shown to significantly tighten the skin. The RF energy causes a coagulative necrosis of sub-dermal fat and dermis along with contraction of Fibro Septal Network (FSN). This bipolar method of RF application also causes a non-ablative, inflammatory heating of the dermis leading to a secondary remodeling and contraction of dermis overt 6 months.

At Liftique, we use a dermal hand-piece electrode to deliver bipolar RF energy to deep reticular dermis. This method induces controlled fractional injury to the dermis creating new elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. This external method can be used to treat the crepe skin, or to promote collagen synthesis and thus “preventing” the natural progress of facial aging.  Combination of these two technologies provide significant skin tightening along with improvement of “crepe” appearance of the skin. Different areas including lower face, neck, jowls, abdomen, thighs, knees, arms, back and bra rolls can be treated with this method. Given the minimal invasiveness of these methods, they can comfortably be done under local anesthesia with little downtime or health risks.

Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon

Facelift surgery is a complex procedure that requires extensive knowledge in facial anatomy, a very specific skill set of surgical techniques, and a highly-developed eye for aesthetic detail. Not all physicians who practice cosmetic surgery receive training in facelift surgery in their residency training, so it’s important to do your homework before choosing a facelift surgeon.

When consulting with potential cosmetic surgeons, ask about their specific training and experience in facial cosmetic surgery. Also, find out how many facelift procedures each has performed, and be sure to look at plenty of before and after photos during your consultation—this will help you get a feel for a cosmetic surgeon’s aesthetic style. Men considering facelift surgery should make sure a cosmetic surgeon has experience performing facelifts for male patients; the anatomy of the male face is unique from a woman’s and requires a knowledgable approach.

Choosing a board certified cosmetic surgeon ensures that your surgeon is specifically trained and experienced in cosmetic surgery, including facelift techniques, and that your procedure will be performed in an accredited surgical facility.

What are the steps of a facelift procedure?

A facelift procedure includes the following steps:

Step 1 – Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.

A variety of other procedures can further enhance the outcome of a facelift. They include:

  • Facial implants or fat transfer to improve contour
  • Resurfacing techniques to improve the tone and texture of facial skin
  • Wrinkle reduction by injection of fat or fillers

Step 2 – The incision

Depending on the degree of change you’d like to see, your facelift choices include a traditional facelift, limited incision facelift or a neck lift.

A traditional facelift incision often begins in the hairline at the temples, continues around the ear and ends in the lower scalp. Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the face, jowls and neck and underlying tissue is repositioned, commonly the deeper layers of the face and the muscles are also lifted. Skin is redraped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away.

A second incision under the chin may be necessary to further improve an aging neck. Sutures or skin adhesives close the incisions.

Traditional Facelift

An alternative to a traditional facelift uses shorter incisions at the temples, continuing around the ear. “Mini-lifts” are usually reserved for patients with less skin relaxation, as the results are less rejuvenating than a full facelift.

Limited Incision

A necklift addresses the sagging jowls, loose neck skin and fat accumulation under the chin. The neck lift incision often begins in front of the ear lobe and wraps around behind the ear, and ends in the posterior hair behind the ear.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions

The incisions will be closed with sutures that may dissolve or may need to be removed after a few days. Some surgeons use skin glues to seal the incisions. Once healed, the incision lines from a facelift are well concealed within the hairline and in the natural contours of the face and ear.

Step 4 – See the results

The visible improvements of a facelift appear once swelling and bruising subside. Your final result should not only restore a more youthful and rested appearance, but also help you feel more confident about yourself. Get more information about facelift results.
