This is a trade off vs. a traditional necklift that you bring up. Money, time, risk, and scars, versus a midline incision line with a scar that will likely, but not for certain, fade in almost all men.

With this operation, and I've done around 270 and taught 2 courses on it, I can easily remove most of a "floppy neck skin pouch" in about 25 minutes while the patient is awake. Other than wearing a dressing one night, there is no downtime and the scar really has done well in about 264 patients. A couple needed a little touch up of a scar area.

I'd get it when I get older. The key is to do enough, but not too much, or the scar will certainly be bad.

I'd love to post lots of cases, but the problem with face work is you need permission to post cases....as opposed to hair where you just crop off the face.

Thanks
