Everything you need to know about the platysmaplasty (neck lift)

If you are struggling with the appearance of a “turkey neck” or “turkey waddle” underneath your chin and are ready to reduce or eliminate it, the neck lift procedure, or “platysmaplasty,” may be right for you! At Romo Plastic Surgery, we work regularly with adult men and women who are experiencing excess skin in this area, providing surgical techniques that can remove the extra skin and tighten the neck area in a natural and effective manner. 

What is a platysmaplasty? 

The neck lift procedure is an elective, cosmetic treatment used for addressing excess skin in the neck area. Using special methodologies that continue to improve, this procedure is performed in a way by Dr. Thomas Romo III to reduce the appearance of any scarring that may be a telltale sign of having “work done.” The procedure removes the extra skin to create a more defined chin and jawline while reducing wrinkles and sagging underneath. The result is a more youthful look and an improved profile. 

Who is a good candidate for a neck lift procedure? 

The neck lift is best for patients who need to: 

  • Reduce jowls
  • Eliminate turkey neck/turkey waddle
  • Tighten lower facial and neck skin
  • Restore youthful contours
  • Eliminate excess skin
  • Reduce wrinkles on the neck area

Patients who are interested in this procedure are advised to schedule a consultation appointment, during which Dr. Thomas Romo III will evaluate the individual to determine if this procedure could help them meet their aesthetic goals. Those who are within their ideal weight and are living a healthy, active lifestyle are the best candidates, including those who have no other medical conditions that may cause complications with undergoing this or other surgical procedures.
