Careful attention to your face may make it look revitalized and youthful. Unfortunately, signs of aging on the neck and jawline can spoil your otherwise rejuvenated appearance. Board-certified Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Ary Krau explains when neck lift surgery makes sense.
As you get older, the skin on your neck gets looser. You can also have excess neck skin if you’ve lost a lot of weight. Along with excess skin in the neck area, as you age, the muscles in the area start to weaken and separate. Loose skin, weak muscles and extra fat all combine to produce a look that’s often called “turkey neck,” since it resembles the wattle that turkeys have under their beak.
