platysma-auricular ligament

Yeui Seok Seo, Jennifer Kim Song, Tae Suk Oh, Seong Ihl Kwon, Tanvaa Tansatit, Joo Heon Lee
Since the time of its inception within facial anatomy, wide variability in the terminology as well as the location and extent of retaining ligaments has resulted in confusion over nomenclature. Confusion over nomenclature also arises with regard to the subcutaneous ligamentous attachments, and in the anatomic location and extent described, particularly for zygomatic and masseteric ligaments. Certain historical terms-McGregor's patch, the platysma auricular ligament, parotid cutaneous ligament, platysma auricular fascia, temporoparotid fasica (Lore's fascia), anterior platysma-cutaneous ligament, and platysma cutaneous ligament-delineate retaining ligaments of related anatomic structures that have been conceptualized in various ways...

BACKGROUND: Lore's fascia and the platysma-auricular ligament are discreet fascial structures anterior and inferior to the auricle respectively. The nomenclature and descriptions of these structures have been presented inconsistently in the literature. There is also concern that placement of platysma suspension sutures into these structures may risk damage to the underlying facial nerve trunk. The aim of this study was to clarify the anatomy of Lore's fascia and the platysma-auricular ligament, and their relationship to the facial nerve trunk...

BACKGROUND: Modern facelift techniques have benefited from a "repopularization" of shorter incisions, limited skin elevation, and more limited dissection of the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and platysma in order to shorten postoperative recovery times and reduce surgical risks for patients. OBJECTIVES: The authors describe their minimal access deep plane extended (MADE) vertical vector facelift, which is a hybrid technique combining the optimal features of the deep plane facelift and the short scar, minimal access cranial suspension (MACS) lift...

BACKGROUND: A "composite" type subplatysmal dissection with lateral advancement of the platysma-skin flap to lift the neck during rhytidectomy has been advocated by several authors. However, the limited subplatysmal dissection described in these techniques restricts the degree of mobilization of the flap. Therefore, most investigators rely on supraplatysmal dissection and medial plication of the platysma to achieve satisfactory cervical contours, especially in patients with difficult necks...

The zygomatic ligaments (McGregor's patch) anchor the skin of the cheek to the inferior border of the zygoma just posterior to the origin of the zygomaticus minor muscle. The mandibular ligaments tether the overlying skin to the anterior mandible. Both these ligaments are obstacles to surgical maneuvers intended to advance the overlying skin. They also restrain the facial skin against gravitational changes, and they delineate the anterior border of the "jowl" area. The platysma-auricular ligament is a thin fascial sheet that extends from the posterosuperior border of the platysma and that is intimately attached to the periauricular skin; it serves as a surgical guide to the posterosuperior border of the platysma...
