Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)
One of the greatest benefits of a Utah neck lift is that it can help restore the your jawline to a more youthful appearance. While we don’t consciously think about it, subconsciously we assess someone’s age by noting the sharpness of the jaw and the contour of neckline. A neck lift is one of the most powerful operations Dr. Mobley performs to restore a more youthful appearance to the face and especially your neckline.

Neck Lift in Utah
A Utah neck lift, sometimes referred to surgically as a “platysmaplasty”, is a popular surgical procedure designed to tighten the loose muscles and skin from around the jawline down to the Adam’s Apple. As you age, regardless of how healthy a lifestyle you maintain, it is common to develop muscle sag of the platysma and the appearance of excessive skin around the jaw line and neck. Neck-lift surgery is typically performed in the late forties to early fifties but for some candidates can still be a great procedure when older or younger than this age range. A neck lift involves directing a great deal of attention to the platysma, which is the band of muscle that extends from the upper collarbone to the edges of the jawbone. If you have excess “turkey gobbler” skin, a neck lift alone is perhaps all that may be required. All of this will be discussed in detail during your consultation with Dr. Mobley.
Dr. Mobley has been chosen as an invited teacher in Washington DC, where during this surgical “workshop” he taught neck lift techniques to doctors from around the country. Dr. Mobley has also published on cosmetic facelift procedures.
Neck Lift Options
Many patients start learning about facial rejuvenation thinking they need a Neck Lift but often soon learn that a traditional Facelift may be an important complimentary procedure to meet their rejuvenation goals.
For some patients, a neck lift alone may not be all that is needed to achieve their ultimate cosmetic goals but for others; combing necklift with facelift may be a better combination. A face-lift, or Rhytidectomy, can be thought of as a superior (upwards) extension of a neck lift, with further tightening of the tissues above the jawline up to the cheek bone area. This achieves a complete rejuvenation from the level of the cheekbones down to the Adam’s apple.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH A NECK-LIFT (PLATYSMAPLASTY)?
As we get older the sharp line between our jaw and neck begin to fade. One of the greatest benefits of a neck lift is to restore the natural jawline back to a more youthful appearance. While we are not actually aware of it, we subconsciously assess a persons age by noting certain shadow lines, facial lines and highlights, causing others to assume we are of a certain age. Therefore, a neck lift is one of the most powerful operations Dr. Mobley performs.
Ideal Candidates for Neck-Lifting Surgery:
- Are more or less at ideal/average body weight
- Have loose skin and muscle below the jawline and above the Adam’s apple
- May have crinkly or wrinkled skin in the middle portions of the neck
- Are healthy and able to undergo 3-4 hours of elective surgery under IV sedation.
