  • Lifting and tightening of sagging jaw line and neck in general
  • Minimal downtime, excellent results
  • High patient satisfaction
  • Single treatment procedure that produces real clinical results and has less than a week downtime.
  • Patients see definite results
  • Cons:

  • Some post-operative swelling that may persist several weeks

  • Things You should know:
