Neck Bands Correction

Neck bands Correction

Bands on the necks of young patients many times are so remarkable that surgery is needed.  The patient we are showing today is fit and in good health.  Her neck shows a noticeable band secondary to relaxation of the neck muscle.  This muscle, in medical terminology called platysma (plah-TIZ-mah), loosened up and created this noticeable band.  In medical terms, this is referred to as a “turkey-gobbler neck deformity.”  In order to correct this aesthetic problem, a neck lift is necessaryThis procedure can also be extended up and combined with a facelift when necessary.  This surgery is usually very effective and can restore the self-esteem that patients often lose because of their facial aging.  Aging of the neck is very difficult to improve without surgery.
