Do Neck Lifts Fix Turkey Neck Or A Sagging Neck

post

It looks great on a turkey, but loose, wrinkly or loose skin on the neck is an unwanted part of aging for many people.  Turkey neck occurs when the neck muscles begin to weaken and the skin loses its elasticity.  The loose skin can become loose and wrinkled, making the turkey neck comparison unappealing.

Age and sun exposure are the main causes of loose skin.  You can’t control aging, but it can help protect your skin from the sun and moisturize your face and neck while abstaining from smoking.  Turkey neck has a genetic component.  If a parent has it, you are more likely to develop it, too.

      Turkey Neck Treatment

Your neck muscles can make them tighter when you exercise, but it won’t change the condition of your skin.  If you want to get rid of turkey neck, there are several treatments that can help improve the appearance of your neck.  Some are non-invasive, meaning they do not involve surgery;  Others are done through minimally invasive surgical techniques through small incisions or conventional surgery.

      Type Of Treatment

      Botox Injections

If you have vertical band-like lines on your neck, injections of Botox or Dysport (i.e., a neuromodulator) may help to temporarily reduce neck muscle activity and give the skin a more relaxed appearance.  The treatment only takes a few minutes and requires no recovery time;  Results usually last for three to four months.

      Laser Skin Tightening

A variety of lasers can be used to heat and tighten the skin of the neck without surgery.  Depending on the laser type, results can be mild to moderate;  Treatment usually requires several sessions to achieve the desired results.  Recovery time is usually minimal and results can last for a few years.

      Cosmetic surgery including cheek lift, face lift and neck lift

A facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens and lifts weak muscles in the face and neck and removes excess loose skin to create smoother, more toned cheeks and necklines.  The surgeon will make an incision behind each ear to hide the scar;  If necessary, another incision can be made under the chin.

After surgery, patients wear an elastic compression bandage around their neck and head to reduce swelling.  Facelift and neck lift are usually performed together on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia;  The process usually takes one to two hours.  Most patients experience bruising and swelling within the first week and return to work and other activities after two weeks.  There are variations of the technique that stretch the face and neck in different directions for a very natural result.
