Lip Lift Revision Surgeon
What Is Lip Lift Revision? Lip lift revision is a surgery that is aimed at improving the cosmesis of the lip, smile, and or lip lift scar in people who have previously received lip lift surgery. After a lip lift, there is a change in the architecture of the lip as well as scar formation in the area where the incision was made, which makes lip revision surgery more technically challenging than an initial lip lift.Read More
Neck Lift in City Facial Plastics
What is a Neck Lift? A neck lift is a family of treatments that address problems with fat, muscle and skin on your neck and jawline. It helps to correct excess flesh on the neck and jowls and gives a contoured and youthful appearance. If there is enough elasticity in the skin, you may benefit from having liposuction (removal of excess fat) alone. Patients may also require liposuction in combination with a platysmaplasty (tightening of the muscles of the neck), to produce a sculpted, angular and youthful jawline. Patients with loose facial and neck skin often choose both a neck lift and facelift. This is in addition to or instead of liposuction. What Is the Relevant Anatomy for a Neck Lift? In order to best understand neck lift surgery and what it can accomplish, it is important to be familiar with the major anatomical structures in the neck. Summarized below are the anatomical neck structures that are involved in the neck lift procedure. Cervicomental angle The cervicomental angle is the angle between the lower aspect of the chin and the start of the neck. Research has shown that the cervicomental angle is an important part of determining attractiveness, with angles ranging 90-105 degrees considered to be most attractive and angles above this range considered to be less attractive. The hyoid bone is a bone in the upper part of the neck which helps determine the cervicomental angle. Hyoid bone The hyoid bone is a U-shaped bone located in the anterior part of the upper neck. While its main role is to anchor the tongue, several muscles in the neck also attach to the hyoid. The hyoid bone helps with chewing, swallowing, and speech. The exact location of the hyoid bone varies from person to person, and its position helps determine the cervicomental angle. Subcutaneous fat (supraplatysmal fat) Subcutaneous fat is the most superficial layer of fat, located just below the skin. This layer of fat is generally thin in young slim people, such that the prominence of the thyRead More
Elelyft New York Facial Plastic Surgeon Doctor Gary Linkov
What is Elelyft? Elelyft is a unique type of upper lip lift surgery. Elelyft surgery is a variation of the bullhorn lip lift surgery that incorporates traditional upper lip lift surgery techniques with a modern and individualized approach in order to achieve the best results. Special surgical ink is used to mark the incision to ensure the exact, correct amount of skin will be removed and that the skin closure is precise.Once the skin is removed, the modern surgical techniques of deep release and undermining of the remaining skin are performed. These additional steps reduce the tension of the skin, leading to more optimal wound closure and minimal scar formation.Read More
