Loose neck skin, sometimes called “turkey neck,” is a common part of the aging process. As we age, neck muscles begin to weaken while overlying skin loses elasticity, resulting in what looks like a turkey wattle. In many cases, the hanging skin is surrounded by crepey, wrinkled, and thin-looking skin that further ages the appearance.
If you are dealing with turkey neck, crepey skin, or both, we are here to help. We offer a range of options that can be used alone or in combination to address the areas of your face and neck that are causing you discomfort.

Producing Ideal Neck Contours
One of the most effective options for recontouring the neck is neck lift surgery. With this procedure, Dr. Brueck can remove loose skin, lift underlying muscles, and tighten the skin around the throat to produce a look that is smooth, youthful, and more attractive.
Neck lift surgery works well as a stand-alone option for people who are experiencing turkey neck or crepey skin but may also be combined with other options for more pronounced results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Brueck will carefully evaluate your areas of concern and discuss all of the options that may help you in reaching your goals.
Chemical peels are an excellent option for crepey skin when laxity is not a concern. With a chemical peel, surface layers of the skin are gently exfoliated, allowing healthier and more youthful-looking skin to be exposed. Safe and non-surgical, chemical peels can address textural issues, but will not be able to lift sagging skin, such as turkey neck. During your initial consultation, we will provide additional information about this non-surgical cosmetic solution if it is of interest to you.
