What is platysplasty?

A woman has skincare on her neck. It is not uncommon for older men and women to approach Dr. Thomas Romo III of Romo Plastic Surgery asking about facial surgeries to turn back the hands of time. Fine lines and wrinkles naturally form on the face as we age due to the loss of collagen and elastin. It can significantly change a patient’s youthful appearance and cause individuals to feel self-conscious about the way they look. With aesthetic plastic surgeries, patients can achieve the results they want. One procedure that is often requested by patients who visit Romo Plastic Surgery of New York is the platysplasty, or “neck lift.”

How does a neck lift work?

The neck lift procedure is a treatment used to address excess skin around the neck area to create a more defined jaw line and reduce bands across the neck. This treatment is achieved by removing both fat and skin and tightening the area with incisions behind the ears. By strategically planning the incision points, patients can avoid the appearance of scarring as it is well-disguised in areas around the face, such as behind the ears or within the hairline. The result of the neck lift procedure is a tightened neck and jaw and smoother skin.

Who is a proper fit for the platysplasty procedure?
