Loose Skin After Platysmaplasty - Jacksonville, FL
I hated my chin & wanted it smaller and needed...
- 25 Nov 2009
I hated my chin & wanted it smaller and needed neck tightened because he said it would be loose due to shortening the chin.
It was painful but I think worth it. The Dr has been really good to follow up with me and offered a free revision.
I had a chin reduction and a submentoplasty/platysmaplasty ?? done. Basically the Dr did a corset tightening of the muscle. He used the same incision for both procedures, with it being about 1.5" long under the chin. The chin was just burred down and looks fantastic. However the skin on my neck/under the chin is saggy. If I raise my chin up to show my scar, all in under there, it sinks in in the center but the skin is hanging loose. Could this be a "cobra deformity"? The Dr said he could revise it by snipping off extra skin using the same scar but a longer incision. He never took skin off the first time as I am young (36) and he thought it would retract. Does this sound like it would help or should I seek out another opinion? I am tempted because this would be a free revision and he seems like a good Dr, but I don't want to have a longer scar and it not really help matters any. Thank you.
He seems very knowledgeable and caring.
