Having a fleshy neck, otherwise known as a “turkey neck,” can make some individuals feel self-conscious about their appearance. This unattractive neck appearance can be the result of such factors as aging, genetics, and being overweight, just to name a few. Having a turkey neck has caused many individuals to seek out their cosmetic surgeons for a procedure that will help them enhance their appearance. A necklift is such a surgical procedure that offers a solution.
The neck lift procedure is intended to provide a natural, attractive and more youthful appearance. This surgery can produce excellent results and the scars are usually inconspicuous. Recent technical advances have led to longer-lasting improvement and an increase in patient satisfaction. Complications are rare.
Many factors play a role in the aging of facial skin. These include the physical environment (sun, wind), the type of skin (elasticity, thickness), the complexion (pale, dark, ruddy), weight alterations, nutrition, smoking and menopause. There is no ideal age for this type of surgery. It must also be remembered that a neck lift cannot remove all wrinkles.
