Addressing turkey neck with a platysmaplasty procedure

istock 1250650953 Men and women who are presenting with the dreaded “turkey neck” may be interested in finding a solution to tighten the tissues and muscles while reducing the sagging skin in the area. Dr. Thomas Romo III works directly with men and women from the New York, NY area to educate them on popular treatment options, including the platysmaplasty procedure, or “neck lift.”

What is accomplished during a neck lift?

The neck lift procedure is often recommended by our professionals for patients who are faced with hanging skin underneath the chin. This might be caused by fluctuations in weight or from the natural aging process. During the neck lift procedure, the doctor will remove excess skin and fat in the neck area, and then restore to complete the process. In some cases, the muscles and tissues are tightened to achieve the best results.

Will I have scarring from a platysmaplasty?

Any surgical procedure will require an incision somewhere in the skin. With the neck lift, Dr. Thomas Romo III can strategically place incision points where scarring will be unnoticed. This is often done underneath the chin or behind the ears. This disguises the incisions for a more natural, untouched appearance to the neck.

Who is a good candidate for the neck lift procedure?

The best patients for the neck lift procedures are adult men and women who are dealing with loose skin in the jowls and neck area. This may occur due to aging around the ages of 50 and up, though younger patients who have achieved significant weight loss and experience sagging skin may be as young as 20 to 30 years old. A consultation visit is the best way to find out if a neck lift is appropriate for you!
