Is Minimally Invasive Better? Try the iGuide Neck lift and See for Yourself
Posted March 25, 2013 in Uncategorized
Recently there have been several published studies that indicate that minimally invasive and outpatient surgeries lead to fewer complications than the same procedures performed in a hospital or using open surgery methods (read the articles here and here). It makes sense. Minimally invasive procedures mean smaller cuts and shorter healing times for patients, and outpatient procedures mean that you can recover in the comfort of your own home, rather than in a hospital. Here at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute we love bringing our patients less invasive options for common procedures. One such option is known as the iGuide Neck lift procedure. This is a minimally invasive option for those that want the results of a neck lift without the invasive surgery.
What is the iGuide Neck lift?
The iGuide Neck lift uses a special type of suture to tighten and firm the skin in the neck. It is a minimally invasive option that can tighten loose skin around the neck and jaw, without the need for long and complex surgical procedures. No muscle or soft tissue is cut during the procedure; a few small incisions in the skin are all that is needed for a firmer, younger looking neck using iGuide.
The unique features of this neck lift option are available because of the special suture and technique used in the procedure. One continuous thread is used to tighten the neck, creating a unique support system that functions similarly to a trampoline. All of the neck tissue is supported as a single unit, leading to natural looking results and quick recovery.
Another benefit of the procedure is the ability to avoid general anesthesia. You’ll remain awake from start to finish while the local anesthesia we use will ensure little to no pain during the treatment. Recovery times are also shortened due to the minimally invasive nature of this procedure. Most patients experience minor pain and bruising for a few days, but can often resume regular activities shortly after the procedure. The iGuide Neck lift has revolutionized the neck lift, making it an appealing possibility to men and women wanting to improve their looks.
Why Minimally Invasive is Better
You want to look great, but that doesn’t mean you can miss out on life for weeks on end while recovering from cosmetic surgery. Minimally invasive procedures like the iGuide neck lift make it possible to enjoy the beauty enhancing benefits of cosmetic treatment without the long recovery times that traditional surgeries require. You get immediately visible results, reduced recovery time and the youthful appearance you’ve always wanted. But, these aren’t the only benefits to minimally invasive procedures.
The same principles that make minimally invasive weight loss surgeries safer than open methods make minimally invasive cosmetic procedures safer too. Quicker recovery times can mean fewer infections and complications. Plus since you feel better sooner you can get back to life with less pain after each procedure.
