Platysmoplasty: Platysmoplasty, also known as a neck lift, is a surgical procedure that addresses signs of aging in the lower face and neck. It tightens the platysma muscle, a sheet-like muscle in the neck, and removes excess skin to create a more defined jawline and smoother neck contour.

Pros: Creates a more youthful and defined jawline, reduces sagging skin in the neck, improves the appearance of wrinkles and bands in the neck.

Cons: Surgical procedure with potential risks like bleeding, infection, scarring, temporary nerve weakness. May require general anesthesia.

Alternatives: Non-surgical options like dermal fillers or Kybella injections for fat reduction might be suitable for mild cases.

Recovery Time: Takes 2-4 weeks for swelling and bruising to subside. Avoid strenuous activity for several weeks.

Disclaimer: Consulting a board-certified plastic surgeon is crucial to discuss candidacy, risks, and expected outcomes.
