The neck is an essential indicator of aging, making it one of the top areas that men and women usually focus on when seeking cosmetic procedures to improve skin appearance. According to a recently published medical paper, neck lift procedures have become the standard treatment if you want to gain a youthful look by protecting your neck from the signs of getting older.

Closed platysmotomy is a procedure you may decide to undergo to enhance neck laxity and thickness. It is characterized by minimal invasion and maximum removal of platysma muscular bands. As one paper concluded, "We did not have any complications other than the occasional occurrence of small ecchymoses."

If you are looking to see a significant transformation in your look, Dr. Chip Cole lists cervical facelift, combined with zetaplasty, among your options. It can be performed under local anesthesia to remove your excess skin, fat, and platysma bands. Although it is associated with low morbidity and quick recovery, the procedure may cause certain complications, such as hypertrophy, which has been reported in 12 of 74 patients who had the operation and were screened for the purposes of a recent study. Other risks such as expansive hematoma and necrosis were found to be rare.

Dr. Chip Cole says you will likely recover from either procedure after a three-week period, within which you can expect side effects like bruising, swelling, and general discomfort around the affected area.
