The neck is an area that can show obvious evidence of the aging process. A platysmaplasty, part of the neck lift, is a method of rejuvenating the platysma muscles to recontour the aging neck and make it appear more youthful.
The platysma muscles stretch from a person’s chest area up to their lower jaw. Over time, these muscles become weaker, and the loose tissues begin to sag. This gives the neck area unsightly bands, along with hanging tissue that is sometimes referred to as a “turkey wattle.”
A platysmaplasty tightens the platysma muscles, removing neck bands and the turkey wattle look. To learn more, set up an appointment by contacting our office.
