What Is Neck Lift Surgery ?
Neck lift surgery (also known as platysmaplasty) is a procedure in which a surgeon cosmetically alters the neck muscles.  Patients typically opt for neck lift surgery to correct loose skin (due to aging or genetics) in order to achieve a more vibrant, taut look.   

Before platysmaplasty, patients are advised to follow a healthy diet, and refrain from alcohol and smoking.  This helps in the healing process.  The actual surgery is performed either as an open or endoscopic procedure, under local or a general anesthesia.  Consultation with doctors is essential to arrive at these critical decisions, which depend on each patient’s level of comfort and medical history.   

During platysmaplasty, the surgeon makes an incision behind the ears and/or under the chin to reach the neck muscle (platysma).  The surgeon then manipulates these muscles (which can include repositioning or partial removal).  Normally, platysmaplasty takes 2-3 hours, but in cases where the surgery is performed in conjunction with liposuction or a face-lift, the time may be longer. 
Neck lift surgery can take a few weeks to heal completely.  Swelling, bruising, skin tightening, pain, and tingling sensations are quite normal after platysmaplasty and are not necessarily cause for concern.  Normally patients can return to work after 10-14 days, and resume exercises and normal activities after three weeks.  A post-operative consultation with the doctor is also scheduled around this time.
