Sagging skin and folds, wrinkles and color changes are often the first noticeable signs of aging. 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.
Physicians should approach the aging neck in a holistic manner, usually in combination with a facelift. By analyzing where volume has been lost and gravity has caused pulling or sagging, surgeons can correct the aging neck by replacing volume and gently pulling specific areas.
Physicians should do an excellent skin care in combination with surgery to treat the aging neck and face.
