Facelift

The "Ribbon Lift" is in fact an actual procedure. I believe it is performed with the use of the endotine ribbon. It is "effective" for neck and jowls and there are even ribbons for the mid face. I think that most surgeons would prefer to use techniques which have with stood the test of time and your results from a mini lift would likely be as impressive as the ribbon lift, and not as dramatic as a full face lift. I would find a surgeon who you are comfortable with, not shop for someone who performs a procedure that has no long term proven efficacy.

Fixation ribbon

I have no personal experience with this device. From what I have read on the web it appears the ribbon lift is a new technique that used a fixation device called an endotine ribbon. There is a small incision made near the ear and a ribbon device with barbs is placed to support the tissues of the face giving a lifted appearance. This is a new type of thread lift device. The ribbon is designed to be absorbed by the body after a few month just leaving the barbs behind. I would suggest visiting the website for The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons to locate a plastic surgeon for consultation.

This sounds like another marketing gimmick facelift. I have never heard of a ribbon lift but if you are looking for a facelift, why not see several plastic surgeons who are board certified and ask their opinions as far as what to do for your face.

Good Luck!
