What’s a J-Lift and Why Do I Need One?

Many people don’t notice their ‘turkey wattle neck’ until it’s too late. Most of the time, you don’t notice all of the excess skin on your neck until someone snaps a candid photograph of you—and then you see it.

Turkey wattle neck is a problem for many people and it can easily resolved with a minimally invasive procedure done by a plastic surgeon.

What is a J-Lift?

J-Lift Plastic Surgery JupiterA J-Lift is a popular facial rejuvenation procedure that tightens the skin around the jaw and upper neck. Because this procedure is natural and requires little to no plastic supplements, it is a good option for patients who want to reduce their ‘turkey wattle neck’ and improve their appearance. This article is a great explanation about what a J-Lift can do for a patient.

During the procedure, a plastic surgeon will make a small incision in front of and behind the earlobe. The size of the incision is similar to a hairline. Once the incision is made, the SMAS muscles are tightened, resulting in a smoother jawline and neck area.

Benefits of a J-Lift

One of the biggest benefits many patients see after having a J-Lift procedure done is the immediate results. The bandages can be removed after 24 hours and a patient will begin to see their face looking healthier and younger than ever.

Because the surgeons doing the procedure have much experience, there is no visible scarring after the incision is made for a J-Lift. Patients have also stated that a J-Lift procedure gives them the feeling of being rejuvenated.

Different Options

Because none of the surgeries available can permanently end the aging process, a J-Lift is one of the minimally invasive surgeries that can give immediate results for a long-lasting amount of time.

The differences between a J-Lift and other surgeries, such as a neck lift, is that a neck lift requires a longer recovery time and is the process of removing fat from the neck along with repositioning the underlying muscles.
