Platysmaplasty (Neck Lift)
A Neck Lift, or platysmaplasty and even submental platysmaplasty, is a surgery designed to reduce the loose look of sagging skin in the neck area and under the jaw line. Some patients who complain of having a fleshy neck, “jowls”, plastysma or neck “banding”, or a “turkey waddle” can benefit from this procedure. Many times patients choose to have a neck lift with a face lift procedure. You must realize that the neck lift or face lift procedure is not designed to rejuvenate the area above the brow or around the eyes. If this is what you seek a brow (forehead) lift or blepharoplasty may benefit you. These four procedures can be performed in conjunction with one another for a complete transformation. You may even wish to consider laser resurfacing, if you are a candidate, for increased wrinkle ablation and facial rejuvenation.
