53. Elastic canthopexy in elastic MACS and neck lifting
The preoperative design shows: the incision that crosses the sideburn and stops at the tragus, the pathway of the elastic canthopexy thread, the parallel neck threads, and the vectors of the isosceles triangles that suspend the cheeks and the malar region. The operator uses a finger to check whether the dissection has extended beyond the zygomatic arch. There is no dissection in the cheeks and neck and therefore no trophic damage to the facial tissues. The elastic threads (Elasticum Korpo srl, Italy) replace the SMAS, with the advantage of being able to exert traction close to the aesthetic defect and to be minimally invasive. The Elasticum suture makes facelift interventions outpatient.
