With age comes a number of different physical changes that impact your appearance and alter how people form their opinions of you. One of the most common changes is the loosening or enlargement of the platsyma muscles. When the platsyma muscles loosen, your neck will appear more saggy and aged.

People who are unhappy with their drooping neck muscles often seek help from a plastic surgeon who provides platysmaplasty. This procedure can assist in reversing the affects of aging to help you retain your youthful appearance. Your neck will look significantly more firm and youthful.
