ICLED Neck Lift
(Percutaneous Trampoline Platysmaplasty)
This is an innovative treatment that can often be performed in the office (or in surgery) with numbing solution, and typically patients do great. It takes about an hour or less, and many patients can return to work the next day. The ICLED neck lift involves some liposuction as well as a suture that is placed “percutaneously” under the skin with a special lighted fiberoptic device that tightens the neck skin. The procedure can provide a full neck lift without any significant incisions—just a 3-mm incision for liposuction.
The ICLED Neck Lift Procedure
The ICLED neck lift, also known as the ImplicitGuide® Surgical Suture System, can provide patients with a firmer, more youthful neck line without the need for a comprehensive surgical procedure. This minimally invasive neck lift from Dr. James F. Boynton requires a single, minor puncture, and provides patients with immediate results and virtually no scarring.
The ICLED procedure requires very little recovery time and creates a lasting, natural-looking neck contour without the need for general anesthesia. The entire procedure takes roughly an hour to complete, and combines minimal liposuction with a suture that is placed “percutaneously” under the skin with a fiberoptic device that tightens the neck skin.
ICLED is FDA-approved for soft tissue approximation and elevation, which is specifically designed to improve the contour of a patient’s neck and jawline. The procedure actually mimics the results of a full neck lift with only a 3 mm incision.
Patients can expect to notice results immediately, and many return to work the next day. Depending on each patient’s cosmetic enhancement goals, ICLED neck lift also works well with the short scar facelift and can be combined with other rejuvenation procedures, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVEDERM®, or Radiesse®.
