What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift (Platysmaplasty) in Fort Myers refers to the tightening and suspension of the muscles of the neck. This helps lessen the “bands” and sagging skin often seen under the jaw line, and also assists with the creation of a well-defined jaw and neck line. During your procedure, Dr. Brueck may remove fatty tissue while tightening underlying muscles and connective tissue.
