Mr Olivier Amar says, “I have many patients who want to reverse the early signs of ageing and appear refreshed and rejuvenated without anyone being able to tell they have had anything done. A skin pinch lift can be a subtle alternative to traditional face lift surgery and skin tightening treatments”
WHAT IS A SKIN PINCH LIFT?
A skin pinch lift restores the sharp angle between the jawline and neck. A skin pinch lift addresses the skin you can pinch under your ear lobe and can improve sagging and laxity on the neck for a more defined jawline. Mr Olivier Amar’s skin pinch lift uses the most effective minimally invasive techniques for a subtle, sophisticated result. There will be minimal discomfort and downtime, minimal bruising and swelling and short scars.
WHY CONSIDER A SKIN PINCH LIFT?
A skin pinch lift is suitable for patients who are concerned about a loss of definition at the jawline, and who don’t want, need or have time for traditional facelift surgery. For these patients, a skin excision may be enough to refresh their look and restore their confidence.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
An incision is made around the earlobe extending to behind the ear, the excess skin is removed, and a few stitches are put in. The pinch from removing the excess skin restores tension on your jawline and improves definition. A skin pinch lift will not address the full neck, patients may require a neck lift if the full neck is a concern.
Some patients may consider liposuction to under chin, fat transfer to chin or skin tightening radiofrequency treatments to under chin or neck at the same time as a skin pinch lift to support the skin excision and rejuvenate the jawline area.
Mr Olivier Amar will carefully examine your jaw line, under chin and neck area and will devise a bespoke plan that may involve a combination approach to bring beautiful jawline, chin and neck definition.
The skin pinch lift procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic as day surgery, meaning you will be able to go home shortly afterwards or under total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA). A technique of anaesthesia which uses a combination of agents given exclusively via the intravenous route without the use of gas anaesthesia. This means you will sleep comfortably throughout the procedure and wake immediately afterwards with a significantly reduced likelihood of feeling groggy or nauseous. The anaesthesia will be explained to you by your anaesthetist during the preoperative consultation. Having surgery with TIVA allows you to go home the same day to rest and recuperate in comfort. Mr Olivier Amar’s practice is happy to assist with a nurse to stay with you overnight if you wish, as well as helping you find local accommodation after your surgery if necessary.
