Turkey Neck Skin Tightening in New York

A Smoother, Younger Looking Neck

If you stare downwards and neck muscles seem to go saggy and shorten because of old age or significant weight loss. The aging process decreases collagen production, the part of the skin that creates elasticity, and also fat layers under the skin decrease, leaving more noticeable hollowness and excess skin. This is the same for weight gain. When weight is gained, the collagen is overworked and can lose its elastic ability to cling to your body, resulting in loose that can hang from the neck, giving it the nickname “turkey neck.”

There are turkey neck exercises, creams, and surgeries to decrease the appearance of the loose neck skin. Surgery is the most effective removal of loose skin. As a surgical dermatologist, Dr. Rokhsar can perform a neck lift to reverse a turkey neck in NYC. Neck lift candidates should be physically and consistently healthy.

The Turkey Neck vs. The Smartphone Neck

In much the same way that you can develop a turkey neck, you can also develop what’s been called a “smartphone neck” or a “Facebook neck.” Every time you look down at your phone, you’re helping that skin to stretch out. Of course, most people–especially young people–look down at their phones all the time. This can cause the skin of the neck to become stretched prematurely, causing the development of loose skin and a look that most describe as unattractive. Loose skin can also accumulate around the jawline.

Luckily, a “smartphone neck” is treated in much the same way that “turkey neck” is treated.

How to Get Rid Of a Turkey Neck?

A neck lift procedure begins with anesthesia followed by Cerviocoplasty which is the surgical removal of excess skin. A platysmaplasty is then performed which is done in order to move or adjust neck muscles. An incision is made under the chin or behind the ears in order to move the neck muscle and in some cases remove parts of the muscles.

Liposuction is also provided as an option to get rid of extra skin. The patient may additionally use Botox injections with or without surgery, depending on the desired results.

The procedure can last two to three hours, again, depending upon the desired results and also if other surgeries are being performed in conjunction such as a facelift.
