Photos are taken and in most cases a medication such as MKO melt is given to help relax you. In the operating room you will be given ProNox nitrous oxide to make you further relaxed and then the skin is cleansed. If platsymal bands are present they are marked and injected with local anesthesia. Three small holes are made and the bands divides using the ICLED kit.
Additional local anesthesia is injected and tumescent fluid placed. FaceTite, AccuTite or Renuvion is performed and if needed liposuction of the neck performed. The suture suspension is placed with the ICLED system and a neck wrap is placed. Recovery is 24 to 48 hours in most cases and post-operative discomfort is minimal. The neck dressing is removed the following day and a neck collar is used at home for about a week. If MyEllevate Plus is performed, a posterior neck incision is added, and skin removed.
