TWS0029 Pain in the NECK! The neck lift is a difficult procedure which is often the first part of an extended facelift to fail. In the world of movie stars and business executives that is Los Angeles, being a Facial Plastic Surgeon can be a demanding place to practice.
Dr Greg Mueller MD is a leading innovator in plastic surgery. Not content with the practices of the 1990's, he spent time and his own money to develop a non-invasive surgical platysmaplasty that combines neck suspension, correction to platysmal bands and a jawline trampoline suspension technique, which are usually carried out as an open neck lift.
Movie stars don't want a visible scar just below the chin (there are only so many people that have actually fallen off a bicycle!), therefore in this excellent 3-camera live surgical video, Dr Mueller shows how the ICLED works.
This facial undermining suturing technique, shows how to thread a suture safely, by means of a fibre-optically lit Suturod, to redrape the skin, and support and close the "spaces" that are created by ageing, with only small puncture sites and NO open skin excision. This is a must see video, not least to see what is possible in today's plastic surgery hot spots.
