Neck Lift

About iGuide neck lift surgery

An iGuide neck lift (also known as a trampoline neck lift) is a minimally invasive procedure used to reposition and tighten the skin and soft tissue around the neck. This relatively new and innovative procedure offers natural looking results with virtually no scarring and quicker recovery times than those found with traditional neck lifts.

The first signs of ageing appear around the neck. It is an area where skin can begin to lose its elasticity and sag, leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Losing weight can also cause an excess of loose skin to appear under the chin. Neck lift surgery can help to stretch out wrinkles and contribute to a more youthful appearance.


The iGuide neck lift procedure

Traditional neck lifts were carried out through a process of cutting and repositioning the muscles and soft tissue. However, using the trampoline neck lift, the surgeon weaves a standard braided polyester suture underneath the jaw line with one continuous thread.  Whilst the iGuide (trampoline neck lift) provides a new approach to neck lifts, the stitches it uses (polyester sutures) have been used surgically for many years and therefore have a long safety record. This will smooth out your jaw line, giving you a more defined appearance.


iGuide neck lift recovery

The recovery time for this procedure is very short; you should be able to return to work within a few days and you will be discharged from hospital the same day as your surgery. Be aware that there will be some swelling and bruising for the first couple of weeks and part of the healing process can involve the skin feeling tight and numb. This will start to resolve itself within the first few weeks.

It can take up to a month to make a full recovery from the iGuide neck lift surgery and you ought to refrain from exerting yourself physically during this time.
