Platysmal Tightening (tightening of the neck)
If you have developed a loosening of the muscles in your neck, we can correct it through platysmal tightening. This procedure lifts, tightens and smoothes the appearance of the neck.
Your treatment usually takes 1 ½ hours.
In many cases, depending on the procedure, you will receive general anesthesia.
Platysmal tightening is usually done on an outpatient basis but you may elect to spend the night at Comfort Cottage with a nurse available to help you.
You may have some numbness, bruising, swelling and slight discomfort.
As with any surgical procedure there are some risks. These risks include infection or bleeding.
You will be able to return to a normal routine in 2 to 3 weeks.
Results of platysmal tightening vary from between 5 and 10 years.
We make sure every procedure is uniquely tailored to provide you the best results. During your consultation you will receive specific information regarding your individual case. Your results will vary.
