Enhancing Neck Contours and Firmness
A neck lift, including platysmaplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the neck area, addressing sagging skin, muscle banding, and excess fat to create a more youthful and defined neck contour. Dr. Andrew Dullnig, our expert facial cosmetic surgeon at Beyond Esthetics in Annandale, Virginia, specializes in neck rejuvenation techniques to restore firmness and refine neck aesthetics.
Why Neck Lift and Platysmaplasty?
Individuals seek neck lift procedures for various reasons:
- Sagging Skin: Addressing loose or hanging skin in the neck area caused by aging or weight loss.
- Muscle Banding: Correcting visible vertical bands or cords (platysmal bands) caused by weakened neck muscles.
- Excess Fat: Removing or repositioning fat deposits for a more contoured neck profile.
- Consultation: Dr. Dullnig evaluates the patient's concerns, examines the neck area, and discusses goals, customizing a treatment plan.
- Surgical Techniques: The procedure may include:
- Neck Lift: Removing excess skin, tightening muscles, and repositioning fat for improved contours.
- Platysmaplasty: Addressing muscle bands by tightening or repositioning the platysma muscle.
- Recovery: Patients receive post-operative care instructions and attend follow-up visits to monitor healing. Swelling gradually subsides, revealing a rejuvenated neck.

Beyond Esthetics Reviews
This is one of the most professional medical offices I have been in. I came for my consultation and last minute had to bring my baby and they were so understanding, kind, and genuine! Looking forward to my procedure soon! Very happy to have found them and that they are so close to home!
Wonderful office and amazing staff very knowledgeable with all the different types of treatments and upgraded technology with all their lasers. I had a great experience with my cosmetic treatment and highly recommend Dr. Leo. Can’t wait to get my next treatment, I love this place!!
I've been getting ‘tox injections at Beyond Esthetics for several months now, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The staff is friendly and professional, and the injections are painless. Highly recommend!
I had a real “treat yourself” moment – I didn’t want a facelift, so we’re doing a combination therapy! Laser skin resurfacing, collagen contouring, a little IPL, and a combo of tox and filler. I started back in January and the results are giving me a decade back at least. The staff at Beyond Esthetics were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful during my initial consultation. They took the time to understand my concerns and recommended the perfect treatment for me. I'm so happy with the results!
I've struggled with hair loss for years, but the hair restoration treatment at Beyond Esthetics has been a game changer. My hair looks fuller and healthier than ever, and the staff was incredibly supportive throughout the process. Kam has become both my esthetician and therapist for life!
