Early signs of ageing in the neck is the appearance of wrinkles and excess skin. Further ageing leads to the appearance of platysmal bands or webbing due to platysma muscle in the neck. The platysma muscle is an extension of the SMAS fascia in the face. 

 

What is the neck lift procedure?

An extended incision from the lobule to the back of the back ear is made to expose and mobilize the skin and muscle bands in the neck. The neck is lifted by tightening the platysmal bands and removing excess skin.
