Eliminate Your Turkey Neck!

Two turkeysThe term “turkey neck” is used to describe the appearance of sagging skin and excess fat deposits on the neck.

This condition typically occurs due to a combination of the following factors:

  • Natural aging
  • Gravity
  • Excessive weight gain/loss

While you may have heard, or even tried anti-aging creams and neck exercises to stave off a turkey neck, these things don’t always produce lasting and satisfiable outcomes. For this reason, Dr. Mesbahi regularly performs neck lift surgery for men and women who wish to eliminate their turkey neck and achieve a rejuvenated appearance with long-lasting results.

What is a Neck Lift?

Also known as a “lower rhytidectomy,” a neck lift improves the appearance of the neck and jaw line by:

  • Removing excess fat and skin in the lower face (jowls) and under the chin
  • Tightening the muscles in the neck
  • Reducing the appearance of vertical neck bands
  • Restoring definition to the jawline

How is it Performed?

Dr. Mesbahi restores a youthful appearance to the neck by making inconspicuous incisions under the chin and in the creases in front of and behind the ears. Dr. Mesbahi removes excess fat and skin and tightens the neck muscles to provide slender and more youthful neck contours.

Are the Results Long-Lasting?

While there is no way to halt the natural aging process, the results from neck lift surgery are expected to be permanent. For longer-lasting results, it is important to maintain a healthy weight.
