Introduction to Plastymaplasty

Platysmaplasty is a surgical procedure offered at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO designed to address sagging or weakened muscles in the neck area, specifically the platysma muscles. This procedure aims to tighten and rejuvenate the appearance of the neck, reducing the signs of aging and creating a more defined and youthful neck contour.

What is Plastymaplasty?

Platysmaplasty is a surgical procedure focused on addressing the platysma muscles, which can become lax over time, leading to the appearance of neck bands, sagging skin, or the formation of a “turkey wattle.” During Platysmaplasty, Dr. Samir Hasan tightens and repositions the muscles to create a smoother and more contoured neck appearance.

How Does Plastymaplasty Work?

During Platysmaplasty at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery, Dr. Samir Hasan typically makes incisions either under the chin or behind the ears. Through these incisions, the underlying platysma muscles are accessed and tightened by various techniques, such as suturing or removing a portion of the muscle. In some cases, excess skin may also be removed to create a smoother and firmer neck contour. The incisions are closed with sutures, and post-surgery, patients are usually advised on aftercare measures and may experience a period of swelling and bruising during the recovery process.

Benefits of Plastymaplasty

Improved Neck Contour

Platysmaplasty effectively restores and enhances the contour of the neck by addressing muscle laxity and eliminating excess skin, resulting in a smoother and more defined neck appearance.

Reduction of Neck Banding

The procedure targets and reduces the appearance of vertical neck bands or “turkey neck,” caused by the separation or laxity of the platysma muscle, resulting in a more toned and youthful neck.

Enhanced Jawline Definition

By tightening and repositioning neck tissues, Platysmaplasty can contribute to improving the definition and contour of the jawline, creating a more aesthetically pleasing facial profile.

Increased Confidence

Patients often experience a significant boost in self-confidence and satisfaction with their appearance following Platysmaplasty, leading to a positive impact on their overall quality of life.

Long-lasting Results

The results of Platysmaplasty are generally long-lasting, providing enduring improvements in the neck’s appearance, contributing to a more youthful and refreshed look.
