Platysmaplasty

About the process

One of the areas that visually magnify the aging process is the neck. As you age, the skin in the face and the neck begin to sag. Even the neck muscles separate, which can cause a turkey neck “waddle.” But a platysma lift can reverse this process.

The platysma is a broad, thin layer of muscle situated on each side of the neck, and it is separated into two distinct sides along the midline.  During the natural aging process, the connective tissue fibers linking the platysma to the overlying skin begin to lose elasticity, which can create a number of aesthetic problems, including:

  • Unsightly neck bands or cords
  • The appearance of a double chin
  • Fatty jowls in the neck/chin area
  • Loose, sagging neck skin associated with the dreaded “turkey wattle” appearance

Platysmaplasty literally means “reconstruction of the neck muscles,” and the platysmaplasty technique differs from all other neck lift approaches because it focuses on tightening the platysma muscle where it is the weakest—under the chin.

 

CORSET PLATYSMAPLASTY PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY

The Platymaplasty Advantage                 


Platysma lift is an extremely safe cosmetic procedure that can tighten the drooping (and age-enhancing) skin on your neck. In addition to sculpting the neck, a platysma lift can fix your double chin and redefine the jaw line, making you look years younger and its youth-enhancing effects can be dramatic.

Some of the benefits of a platysma lift include:

  • A perfectly sculpted, redefined neck
  • A more defined chin and jaw line
  • No more turkey neck.
  • A natural looking, younger you

What is the Platysmaplasty Procedure

During the Platysmaplasty procedure, the doctor will make a small, horizontal incision, (discreetly concealed beneath the chin) through which he will join the two sides of the platysma muscle together to create a single muscular sheet that is resistant to the formation of neck bands and enhances the definition of the jawline and neck. The doctor will surgically excise the fat from the neck musculature using direct visualization. He will then perform central plication of the platysma, which involves tightening the weakened or stretched platysma with multiple rows of surgical stitches.

This highly effective tightening technique is similar to that of lacing up a woman’s corset, and helps to create a taut, smooth muscle layer and a sharp transition between the neck and jaw, which translates to an improved neck angle and a more youthfully defined neck and jawline.  

This procedure generally takes between 2 and 3 hours to complete.

  • Most patients are able to return to work within seven to ten days after the neck lift, sometimes sooner for those patients not bothered by residual swelling.
