The surgical procedure involves an incision on a location based on the extent of low-face sagging and drooping, whether or not there is a double chin, how much needs to be cut, the length to be cut, the excess skin, etc. Hence, the scar location also varies.


Tradition lift surgery results in a large wound and a long repair period.

♦Surgical Procedure

There are three types of low-face surgery procedures.

1.Simple Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device. 

2.Exquisite Lift Endoscopic Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device.

3.Complex Endoscopic Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device.


♦Simple Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device


The surgery involves making an incision on the ear or behind the earlobe. The facial muscles are stripped using a striper to separate the shallow-layer tissues. The “Ribbon” is then placed on the soft tissues of the face. The tissues can be fixated through the tine function of the “Ribbon”, thereby adjusting the area to be lifted.

This surgical procedure involves simply putting in the Ribbon without deep-layer stripping or slicing the skin. Speedy recovery can be achieved, but results are not lasting. It is suitable for young people and people with only slight sagging, as results are not lasting.


♦Exquisite Endoscopic Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device

Only one small incision is made behind both lobes, and a slender endoscope is placed inside, which is connected externally by an enlarged screen to view and operate the endoscope that probes deep into the soft tissues of the face, bypassing the blood vessels and nerves. The muscles at varied depths, fascia, and low-face muscular tissues can be clearly presented. Then, using the function of the tines in the “Ribbon”, the “Ribbon” is fixated on the sot tissues. Then, the entire tissues are pulled upwards and backwards in a three-dimensional manner fixation. Sagging and redundant skin is removed, and the scar is hidden behind the year. This not only reduced the size of the wound, bleeding, swelling, and pain, but also makes the wound invisible from outside with more lasting and better results.


Exquisite Endoscopic Low-face Lift and Endoscopic Mid-face Lift When performed conjunctively, the pulling and lifting force of the Endoscopic Mid-face Lift can achieve better low-face lifting results.


♦Who Need

1.Those with moderate face sagging, marionette lines, winrkles around the lips, labiomandibular lines, and signs of aging needing improvement.

2.Those who wish to have a firm and small V-shaped face.

♦Endoscopic Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device

The “Endoscopic Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device” is intended for moderate or severe low-face sagging or those who had undergone “Endoscopic Mid-face Lift” and wish to improve low-face sagging. Without the lifting force of the Endoscopic Mid-face Lift, to strip sagging tissues and place the “Ribbon” on the soft tissues of the face, the tine function of the “Ribbon” is adopted to fixate a large area of tissues. After adjusting and fixating it in the area to be lifted, excessive sagging skin has to be removed in order to lift and firm up the tissues on the cheeks and chin as well as the sagging skin in the neck area.



♦ Location of the Wound

The size and location of the wound from “Low-face Lift” can be determined by the following factors:

  1. The age, shape of face, aging and sagging level, and other factors before surgery serve as a reference for analysis in order to determine the location of the incision, the amount of skin to be removed, the size of the wound, and the way to conceal the wound.

  2.The doctor’s degree of familiarity and mastery of surgery and endoscopic surgical techniques, as well as his or her wealth of experience.

Low-face Lift is a delicate and yet complex surgery. The surgical procedure may involve simply placing the Ribbon without slicing skin, but it is only suitable for young people or individuals with only slight sagging, and the results are not lasting.

With Endoscopic Mid-face Lift, besides a shortened surgical wound recovery period, the scar is hidden beside the earlobe, with more lasting and better results.

If only the Low-face with Ribbon Device is used, redundant sagging and aging skin has to be removed to achieve lasting results.


There is no age limit for lifting. Under safe conditions, the earlier one undergoes lifting, the sooner one will retain and maintain a youthful look, thus more natural, effective, and lasting the results.


♦Fixation Material of Endoscopic Low-face Lift

  Endotine Material

Ribbon and Endotine are both made from absorbable and soluble lactic acid. It consists of 27 tines to clamp, lift, and fixate tissues. The patented multi-point fixation with ribbon-like flexibility lifts the soft tissues of the face to effectively improve sagging and loose nasolabial lines, roping lines at the corners of the mouth, and loose chins or Turtle’s neck formed due to aging. “Ribbon” can be completely absorbed by the body about six months after placement, without causing any side effects. Therefore, the “Ribbon” applied in “Endoscopic Low-face Lift” surgery is said to become a trend. “Endoscopic low-face Lift” surgery features “small wound”, “speedy recovery”, and “similar costs compared to traditional lifts”, good news for those who wish to regain youth.

Ribbon made up of 27 tines has ribbon-like softness.


♦Dr. WU Endoscopic Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device

Dr. WU Endoscopic Low-face Lift with Ribbon Device-This procedure has a short postoperative tissue recovery period unlike traditional incision lift procedure. This is because the traditional lift procedure involves making 40-50cm incisions on the sides of the cheeks, along the ears, from the front to the back, turning the skin of the face outward, pulling it tight, and suturing after removing the excessive part. The most common problem after surgery is that the two sides of the face are pulled flat without the three-dimensional look, thus leading to the so-called “mask face”. IN addition, due to the large and long surgical wound, the tissue swelling period and recovery time are lengthened. The “Endoscopic Low-face with Ribbon Device” surgery the other hand produces a small sound after surgery, while the tissue recovery time is shorter and the results are more lasting. Unlike the traditional incision lifting procedure, public inquiries and acceptance have grown. Moreover, we ask our anesthesiologist to continue administering IV drips for pain relief during postoperative recovery time, thus easing the pain and discomfort you might feel after surgery and providing you comfortable and high-quality recovery.
