Dr. Donaldson performs the neck lift (platysmaplasty), a surgery designed to remove excess, sagging skin under the jaw line and on the neck. Some patients who complain of having a fleshy neck, “jowls,” platysma or neck “banding,” or a “turkey wattle” can benefit from this procedure. In some cases, the platysma muscle of the neck is adjusted and tightened if it has begun to separate and sag.
In fact, many younger people also undergo platysmaplasty. Many men and women who have undergone neck lift are often thought to have “lost a lot of weight” or “toned up” rather than having had surgery. While some people only need a neck lift, and not a full face lift, the combination of the two can truly make a difference, giving you a younger and refreshed look.
Dr. Donaldson will work closely with you to determine your own personal vision and to choose the most beneficial and appropriate procedure.
