Ultrasound diagnosis of age-related involutional changes in the lower third of face and neck to determine treatment techniques
Objective: To develop a clinical technique for objective estimation of exact location and degree of participation of face and neck soft tissues in age-related deformations for determine effective mini-invasive treatment techniques.
Methods: Ultrasound examination was performed in 2017-2019 at 63 patients with age-related face changes. Examination was done in the vertical position for determine the role, exact location and participation degree of different soft tissues of the face and neck in age-related changes.
Results: Great diagnostic value of ultrasound examination of involutional changes in soft tissues of lower third of face and neck was noted to determine all causes of contour age-related deformities. These results were used to choose effective minimally invasive methods for correction.
Conclusion: Ultrasound examination is a non-invasive, harmless, clinically available, inexpensive examination that allows to determine exact localization and degree of participation of different soft tissues of face and neck in age-related changes. That is very important for planning and use different minimally invasive techniques for facial and neck rejuvenation.
