Over time, life can take its toll on our face, leaving permanent damage to our skin as it goes. These scars, whether from acne or other trauma, can make a big impact on our appearance. Currently there’s no way to make them disappear completely, but there are ways to significantly reduce their visibility. Scar correction is a cosmetic procedure that involves laser skin treatment or chemical peels that are capable of softening the appearance of scars.
Scar correction treatment is an effective way to reduce the appearance of many different types of scars. Some of the more common types of scars are depressed, spread, hyperpigmented, hypertrophic and keloid scars.
Neck lift surgery can be personalized for each client’s individual needs by incorporating various techniques to achieve a desired outcome. For patients looking to diminish the banded, turkey-like look on their neck, a particular kind of neck lift surgery known as a platysmaplasty may be in order.
During a platysmaplasty, the platysma muscles are modified, and parts are sometimes removed entirely. These are two large, sheet-like muscles that run down from the chin to the collarbone.
First, an incision is created behind the ears, below the chin, or in both sites. The surgeon uses specified tools to adjust and remove the muscle tissue, eliminating the banded areas. The incision is then closed with sutures, as with the other neck lift procedures.
