How can I get rid of my turkey neck?

Do you have a turkey neck that you would like to get rid of?  If yes, and you’ve tried neck tightening creams and neck exercises but nothing works, you may be wondering – How can I get rid of my turkey neck? 

Why do you have a turkey neck?

Sagging and wrinkling of the neck skin is usually the result of aging.  The breakdown of collagen and elastin over time, as well as excess sun exposure and weight loss, can all contribute to sagging neck skin. 

How can I get rid of my turkey neck?

You can get rid of your turkey neck with a neck lift.   A neck lift is a surgical procedure that tightens and defines the neck line, by removing excess skin and fat. If you’re tired of hiding your turkey neck with scarves and turtlenecks, a neck lift can give you the tighter, firmer neck you desire.

What happens during a neck lift?

A neck lift is an out-patient procedure that is typically done under local anesthesia.  The incisions for neck lift surgery are generally made behind the ears.  During the procedure the surgeon will suction any extra fat, trim away excess skin, and lift and tighten the underlying platysma (neck) muscles.  Neck lift surgery takes 1-2 hours to complete.

When will I see results?

Patients will notice an appreciable improvement in the tightness and firmness of the neck immediately after surgery.  Full results can be seen over the following weeks and months as the swelling subsides.
