Northfield, IL (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Geroulis is among a select few surgeons now performing a highly specialized neck lift procedure called a Corset Platysmaplasty. Appropriately named for its similarities to the centrally-laced undergarment that was traditionally worn by women to produce the desired, hourglass figure, the corset neck lift gently pulls upwards the central muscles of the neck to re-contour and re-define the neck region. This less-invasive procedure corrects neck muscle laxity by weakening neck bands, as opposed to removing muscle as is commonly done in many neck lift procedures today.
“The corset-style neck lift has become a very popular, customized procedure at my surgical facility on the North Shore. I recommend it to patients, whether they are in their forties or eighties, who are concerned with unsightly jowls, neck bands and excess loose skin,” explains Chicago-based surgeon Dr. Geroulis.
The corset neck lift is sometimes performed in conjunction with a facelift, where in some cases, fat may be added or removed to accomplish the perfect neck contour. This specialized technique has been a tremendous addition to the armamentarium of procedures available at North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery. “One incredible characteristic of this unique procedure is its efficacy to reduce jowl and neck bands and its applicability to women as young as forty. Nevertheless, a few months ago, I performed this corset procedure on an 89-year-old, so I am able to adapt this procedure for each patient.”
