Platysmaplasty: a critical step in facelift surgery

Facelift surgery is my favorite procedure and I have done over 1,000 of them.  I have been doing a video series on various steps that are critical to natural appearance and long lasting results.  Some surgeons omit some of these procedures that I  consider critical and I feel that their patients are short changed.  This post examines platysmaplasty which is a procedure to rejuvenate the aging neck and is performed in all of my comprehensive facelifts.  This video contains actual surgical footage so viewer discretion is advised.
