What is a Trampoline Platysmaplasty?
There is no need to be afraid of fancy scientific names. A trampoline platysmaplasty (TPP) is simply a specific neck rejuvenation technique. A neck-lift is a common procedure for many people seeking to regain a youthful appearance and eliminate a double chin or muscle bands. The TPP technique elevates the neck muscles and glands to give patients a youthful jaw line while minimizing the incision length and down time. Dr. Stevens uses an iGiude for a TPP procedure, an FDA approved device that uses fiber optics to ensure that the surgeon places any sutures with precision and accuracy.
If you have skin that has begun to loose elasticity, excess fat, a neck lift may be an ideal option and can dramatically help to improve your appearance. During a consultation with your surgeon, he will assess the amount of excess fat or loose skin in your neck area as well as the quality of your skin and muscle tone, and discuss expected outcomes and techniques for a neck lift. If you are in good health speak with your surgeon about this procedure and your desired results.
