The holiday season is finally year, and that means pies on the table and turkey in the oven. But for many people, turkey isn’t just a delicious seasonal food – it’s also around their neck and jawlines.

Turkey neck, as it’s not-so-affectionately called, is a cosmetic issue that typically coincides with getting older. Aging skin begins to lose its elasticity and strength, which is then pulled down the face by gravity. This phenomenon – which may be further emphasized by fat around the neck and jawline – can result in turkey neck.

As a result of turkey neck and drooping jowls, you may feel self-conscious about your facial appearance. Fortunately, there are two effective ways to get rid of turkey neck, so you can enjoy a smoother, tighter-looking neck and jawline.

Turkey Neck Solutions at Rocheford Plastic Surgery

At Rocheford Plastic Surgery in Woodbury, MN – serving the greater St. Paul/Minneapolis metro region – board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Heather Rocheford offers two ways to eliminate turkey neck:

• Neck Lift
• Neck Liposuction

Let’s take a closer look at how Dr. Rocheford can help you get rid of your turkey neck once and for all:

Neck Lift: If your main problem is loose, sagging skin, the neck lift is the best option for your turkey neck. The neck lift – which is referred to as a platysmaplasty – lifts and tightens the muscles in the neck region, which corrects most sagging skin issues.

Neck Liposuction: Do you have mild to moderate turkey neck? Then you may not need a neck lift; instead, neck liposuction might be the most appropriate option. During neck liposuction, Dr. Rocheford removes unwanted fat cells via a cannula, which is inserted into the neck through tiny incisions. This option is best for patients who have firmer, more elastic skin.

Both of these options are designed to help minimize the appearance of turkey neck, leading to a smoother, younger-looking neck and a defined jawline.
