3 Ways to Improve Your Aging Turkey Face
Facial aging is not the same for everyone, and different people have different issues when it comes to combating facial aging. A sagging, turkey-like appearance affects both men and women, in which the lower third of their face and neck have begun to sag. Here are the three ways to reverse your turkey face for a younger, brighter appearance.
1. Undergo a Neck Lift
Men and women who suffer from a “turkey wattle” have a sagging accumulation of skin along the neck. This can be accompanied by vertical banding, loose platysma muscles, and excess fat below the chin. The neck lift is designed to restore a thinner, smoother, and more graceful neck appearance, effectively eliminating your turkey wattle to help you look and feel more like a spring chicken.
A neck lift achieves your ideal neck profile by placing a small incision at the base of your neck. Excess skin and fat are removed. A corset suturing technique is used to tighten the loose platysma muscles. Dr. Koch’s neck lift technique is so discreet that no one will know you’ve had surgery!
2. Combine a Facelift and Neck Lift
If you suffer from more than just a pronounced wattle, combining both a facelift and neck lift may be the right decision for you. Patients with lower facial sagging usually also have neck sagging, which will detract from the results of a facelift if left untreated. In addition to restoring a firmer, smoother facial appearance, combining facial procedures has the added benefits of:
- Being cost-effective because you are only paying for anesthesia and your surgical facility one time.
- Less recovery time because you recover from both at the same time rather than having two separate six-week recoveries.
3. Go Non-Surgical
For patients whose turkey wattle is caused by a double-chin, non-surgical options may be the way to go. The new FDA-approved KYBELLA® is the ideal treatment for people looking to eliminate their double chin. KYBELLA® is safe and effective, reducing the amount of submental fat in just a few short weeks.
