Turkey may be one of the most popular dish for Thanksgiving–88% of Americans eat it for their holiday meal–but there’s one place we definitely don’t want turkey: our necks! As people age, there’s always the chance of developing the dreaded “turkey neck.” It’s a common issue but notoriously tricky to take care of. What can you do when this happens? Fortunately, here at the offices of Jim Brantner, MD we’ve got a solution: our neck lift procedure will remove that sagging skin for good.
A neck lift involves removing excess skin and fat—and potentially restructuring the muscle underneath—to create a smoother, rejuvenated appearance and natural-looking results. While this is a major procedure and will require some prep and recovery time, it’s also one of the safest and most reliable procedures in plastic surgery. We perform this procedure in two to three hours, with minor incisions and scarring. Generally, patients won’t need general anesthesia, but the only way to determine your specific needs is to schedule a consultation at our office.
Remember, an ounce of prevention is often worth a pound of cure when it comes to aging issues. Treat your neck with the same care and consideration you do your face—wear sunscreen every day and use the same anti-aging products on your neck that you do on the rest of your skin. If you have any questions about products, don’t hesitate to ask!
