Will a Facelift Correct Turkey Neck?

Posted: February 2, 2021

Neck Lift for Turkey NeckA facelift in some instances can be used to correct turkey neck. This condition occurs when the muscles of the neck begin to weaken, causing skin behind the chin to sag. In order to get rid of turkey neck, some patients find that they need a combination of a neck lift and a lower facelift to achieve their desired results. 

If you are considering a face or neck lift to reduce sagging skin, call us today at 239-939-5233 to set up a free consultation with Dr. Robert Brueck. He can help you explore your options for correcting turkey neck and provide you a treatment plan that addresses your concerns.

Generally, patients opt for a platysmaplasty, also known as a neck lift, to help tighten the skin and muscles in the neck. This procedure helps reduce loose skin behind the chin. A lower facelift is slightly different. In this procedure, we further contour the jawline, giving your neck a more defined look. Since both of these treatments address sagging skin, many patients choose to combine them for a better result.

What Can a Facelift Correct?

Facelifts, in particular, can help treat a variety of age-related imperfections, including:

  • Wrinkles, fold, and lines
  • A double chin
  • Muscle tone loss
  • Jowls on the jawline

The benefits of a neck lift are very similar to a facelift. However, combining the two procedures offers optimal results, creating a more youthful appearance. If you decide to have both a neck lift and a facelift, you can expect:

  • A longer, better-contoured neck
  • Decreased fat in the face and chin
  • Tightened neck muscles

Dr. Brueck can help schedule both of these surgeries at once so that you don’t need two separate procedures. Whether you decide to just have a neck lift or want to combine different procedures, we can help you achieve a look you love.
