What Are Vertical Neck Bands?
Aging can have a noticeable effect on the appearance of your neck. It’s not just the neck skin that is affected but also the muscles of the neck. Platysmal bands, also known as vertical neck bands, can become more prominent as we age and can give the neck a shriveled appearance.
Platysmal bands can be seen when you make certain expressions or facial movements, but if left untreated, they can be visible even when your muscles are at rest.
Patients with moderate to severe vertical neck banding will benefit the most from a specific neck lift procedure known as platysmaplasty.
This surgical procedure is specifically for correcting vertical neck banding. The procedure involves removing and realigning key areas of the neck muscles using a specialized instrument inserted under the neck skin. This tightens the muscles of the neck and creates a sleek neck with a smooth surface.
