Neck is an important part of face and thus sagging and wrinkles on the neck directly affect face aesthetic. Aging, gravity and genetic factors causes the skin to loosen. The angle between the chin and the neck narrows and disappears because of the sagging. Overweight people may have a fat deposit called double chin in addition to the sagging. These changes corrupt the contour of the face causing people seem older than they actually are. Platysmaplasty fixes loosening and wrinkles on the face and neck area and gives a patient a younger look.
Platysmaplasty is an operation administered in order to enable a better neck angle for the patients and remove excessive skin under the chin. Based on the examination result, excessive skin is removed with a little incision underneath the chin or behind the ears to give an aesthetic and youthful appearance to the neck.

Is platysmaplasty and liposuction administered simultaneously?
