Neck Lift (platysmaplasty) for Neck Bands

The neck lift (platysmaplasty) surgical procedure removes a portion of the platysma muscle to reduce neck bands. Platysmaplasty is completed through an incision made under the chin, behind the ears, or both. Surgical instruments can be inserted through this incision to manipulate the muscle. The operation takes about three weeks to recover from and lasts 10 to 15 years.

Platysmaplasty surgery can be combined with cervicoplasty for excessively slack skin—a surgical procedure that removes any skin surfeits and tightens the remaining neck skin. Platysmaplasty surgery costs $2,000 - $4,000. When combined with a skin tightening cervicoplasty, it could cost $5,000 - $7,000.
