Trampoline Neck Lift
The Trampoline Neck Lift is a minimally invasive technique used to lift and tighten sagging tissue in the neck. This is a non-surgical alternative to the traditional surgical neck lift for neck rejuvenation. The technique is primarily performed to redefine the jawline, reduce the loss of a sculpted neck contour, minimize the appearance of neck skin laxity and eliminate the appearance of a double chin.
What Is a Trampoline Neck Lift?
As we age, the skin, tissue, and muscles around the neck and jawline weaken and the skin begins to sag. This results in increased number of wrinkles and an appearance of sagging skin. The same effect can be seen in patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight where there is excess skin in the area.
The Trampoline Neck Lift is a revolutionary procedure for patients wishing to define their jawline and contour the neck area without having to undergo surgery. The treatment results in defining the jawline, sculpting, tightening and lifting of the neck area and can assist in stretching out the wrinkles to give your skin a tighter, lifted youthful neck.
The Trampoline Neck Lift is done using surgical threads that are placed in a specified pattern to tighten the loose skin around the neck and chin area. The tightening of the skin is compared to the stretching of a trampoline mat by means of springs and is the motivation for this technique being called the “Trampoline Neck Lift”.
The technique has become a sought-after treatment for neck rejuvenation since it has a short recovery period and great results that are visible immediately and are sustained for a lengthily period of time.

What Can You / Can’t You Expect from The Treatment?

The effects of the Trampoline Neck Lift can last for a number of years however the results vary from patient to patient. The longevity of the results is dependent on factors such as age, the condition of the skin and area treated, overall health and lifestyle.
What Are The Unwanted Effects / Risks Of The Treatment?
It is important that you notify your specialist of all and any pre-existing medical conditions before treatment. As with any procedure, there is a certain amount of risk and it important that you understand the risks involved before deciding to undergo treatment. Although, the majority of patients do not experience these complications, always make sure that you discuss them with your Specialist beforehand.
We suggest you stop any blood thinning medication a few days before and after the procedure. The most common side effects are slight swelling and bruising, discomfort, and bleeding which will disappear within a few hours to days.
However, do not hesitate to contact your specialist should you have any other side effects as all skin injection procedures carry a risk of infection, even in the most stringently clean environments.
