With the recent move, Dr. Chip Cole seeks to shed light on the most state-of-the-art developments in neck and face lift plastic surgery procedures today and the possible complications. His work also draws from over three decades of experience in performing ophthalmology and cosmetic surgery across the globe.

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 for people who want to gain youthful looks by protecting their necks from the signs of getting older.

Closed platysmotomy is a procedure often undertaken to enhance neck laxity and thickness, 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.”

Another surgical option for rhytidoplasty is cervical facelift, combined with zetaplasty, which can be performed under local anesthesia to remove 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.
