Treating post-facelift sagging

Posted: 3:37 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013

By Anita Mandal, M.D.
Question: I had a facelift four months ago. While I do look better and more youthful, I am not satisfied with the results. I still have some sagging under my chin and in my jowl areas. Can this be improved without having more surgery?

Answer: Ulthera is a non-surgical alternative for treating certain stubborn areas of loose tissue that a facelift cannot fully improve. Common areas treated are:

  • Residual sagging under the chin
  • Loose tissue in the deep angle of the neck
  • Fullness along the jawline

These persistent areas of fullness after surgery are often due to poor tissue elasticity.

Because Ulthera works by stimulating the collagen to improve the intrinsic tissue elasticity, it makes sense for Ulthera to tighten the loose tissue remaining in the face or after a facelift. This ultrasound device causes gradual tightening and lifting of the tissues over time, allowing you to see a little more lifting each month for six to nine months after a single, one-hour treatment.

Using Ulthera in combination with facelift or mini-facelift surgery can enhance the results of surgery. Discussing all of your options with your facial plastic surgeon, along with realistic expectations, can help you to achieve optimal results
