Question : I’ve heard that the platysma is addressed with a neck lift. What is this?
Answer : The platysma is a thin band of muscle that runs throughout your neck. There is one on each side. Quite often in older patients you may see when you look at the neck in the front, there are two lines running vertically. Because the band looks visible, the neck lift tightens these bands and contours the neck to create a good result and youthful appearance.
