Until now the only way to tighten the sagging neck sick was through time consuming and invasive neck-lift surgery, but according to Mail online that is no longer the case. This new surgery is called the trampoline lift, this one-hour procedure involves making a series of pinpricks across the jaw line. A thin surgical thread or suture, is weaved through these tiny holes, before being tied together like a shoelace tightening up loose skin around the neck and chin. The effect has been compared to that of the stretching of a trampoline, where is where it got its name. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, compared to a full-on neck lift, which is an aggressive surgery with increased risks of nerve damage, numbness and blood clots, not to mention the three months needed to recuperate, this is a far more attractive option. With this new type of surgery you have minimal incisions, so the possibility of infection is low and recovery time in most cases is just a week.
