Turkey Neck Treatment

No one wants their neck skin to look like a turkey’s. But, there can be times when neck skin becomes wrinkled or starts to sag. In these instances, people are prone to “turkey neck.” However, with appropriate diagnosis and treatment, anyone can undergo a safe and effective turkey neck treatment.

Dr. Babak Azizzadeh of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles understands the challenges associated with treating turkey neck. Fortunately, Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with many years of turkey neck treatment experience. Dr. Azizzadeh can evaluate a patient and determine if he or she is a good candidate for turkey neck surgery. If a patient qualifies for turkey neck surgery, Dr. Azizzadeh develops a custom treatment plan for him or her. Or, if Dr. Azizzadeh discovers a non-surgical option is the best treatment for turkey neck, he plans accordingly.

Regardless of turkey neck treatment, Dr. Azizzadeh wants his patient to feel confident in his ability to deliver their desired results. As such, Dr. Azizzadeh is happy to explain all aspects of turkey neck, how the condition can affect an individual’s facial appearance, and what treatment options are available to correct this issue.

What Is Turkey Neck?

Turkey neck refers to a condition in which the skin on the neck begins to sag and wrinkle. It often occurs when the neck muscles become weak and the neck skin loses elasticity. In this instance, individuals can appear older than their actual age due to sagging or wrinkled skin in the neck and jawline.

People dealing with turkey neck may notice wrinkled, sagging, and droopy neck skin. Although these issues won’t cause neck pain, they can hamper an individual’s facial appearance. Yet, those who understand the causes of turkey neck can take appropriate steps to guard against this problem and prevent it from escalating.

What Causes Turkey Neck?

Turkey neck occurs due to the natural aging process. As a person gets older, their neck muscles lose strength. When this happens, neck skin wrinkles can form, and the neck skin can sag.

In addition, prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can contribute to turkey neck. Spending long periods of time in the sun can result in free radicals that damage skin cells. Therefore, people who do not apply sunblock or take other measures to protect the neck skin against the sun’s UV rays may be susceptible to turkey neck. These individuals are also prone to sun-damaged skin across the face.

Smoking and air pollution can contribute to skin aging as well. They can affect the body’s ability to produce sufficient collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid that support healthy skin in the neck and face.

Is Turkey Neck Preventable?

There is no slowing down the natural aging process that can cause turkey neck. Conversely, there are several things that people can do to limit their risk of turkey neck and other common signs of aging in the face. These include:

1. Wear Sunblock

Apply sunblock with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher before going outdoors. Sunblock should be worn year-round any time an individual plans to spend an extended period of time in the sun. It should be used on the neck and face skin. And a new coat of sunblock should be applied every few hours.

2. Develop and Maintain a Nutritious Diet

Carrots, salmon, and other collagen and elastin-rich foods can help improve skin health. Consume these foods regularly to help keep the neck and face skin looking great.

3. Use Skin Care Products

Collagen supplements and other skin care products can be incorporated into a daily skin health regimen. Before using these products, consult with a dermatologist. Then, an individual can receive an assessment and find out what products can deliver the optimal facial rejuvenation results. He or she can also learn how to get the most value out of their skin health routine.

For those who notice sagging, wrinkled, or droopy neck skin, it can be beneficial to explore treatment options. At this point, Dr. Azizzadeh can offer assistance.

Dr. Azizzadeh can meet with a patient to discuss turkey neck treatment options. He can also explain if surgical or non-surgical treatment of turkey neck is the best option based on his patient’s health, neck skin issues, and other factors.

In some instances, Dr. Azizzadeh recommends turkey neck surgery. For these individuals, a neck lift offers a viable turkey neck treatment. By undergoing this turkey neck procedure, an individual can reduce the appearance of visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline.

Which Is Better: A Surgical or Non-Surgical Turkey Neck Treatment?
