What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift, or platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that addresses signs of aging and wrinkling by removing and tightening excess skin along the jawline and neck for a more contoured/defined appearance. This drastically improves the youthfulness in your appearance, giving you the chiseled, contoured, and younger look you’ve been wanting.
About the Neck Lift
Your surgeon will discuss your medical history and goals with the procedure. During the procedure, small incisions are made behind/around the ears near the sideburn, continuing down to the chin. The muscle under these areas are then tightened, excess skin is removed, and the skin is then redraped over these newly contoured areas, closed off with sutures.
Neck lift Recovery
The recovery time is about several weeks with this procedure, with bruising and swelling along the areas of the incisions to be expected. The sutures are removed after about seven to ten days, with specific instructions given by your surgeon regarding when physical and strenuous activity may resume, as well as helping to manage pain and discomfort.
