Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)

Description

A platysmaplasty, or necklift, refers to the tightening and suspension of the muscles of the neck. This helps lessen the "bands" and sagging skin often seen under the jaw line, and also assists with the creation of a well-defined jaw neck line or cervicomental angle. The goal of a necklift is to tighten the excess skin from the neck to diminish wrinkling and sagging. Some fat may be removed and underlying muscles and connective tissue are tightened.
