Have you ever heard someone refer to their neck or another’s neck as “turkey wattle neck”? Even if you have never heard of it, it does not sound like a good thing, does it? Our Jupiter and West Palm Beach Plastic Surgery center hears the question a lot. Turkey wattle neck refers to the fat that hangs below the face and collects at the neck. As people age, this might become a real problem, and appear very unattractive. Luckily, there is a way to avoid it and a way to get rid of it: a face lift.
What is turkey wattle neck?
Even if you haven’t heard of turkey wattle neck, you’ve most certainly heard of a face lift. Face lifts are common procedures, especially for middle-aged men and women. Although face lifts are more common among women, men can and have gotten them done as well. A fact lift rids the neck of unwanted or bulging fat and makes the face appear smoother and younger.
What is a face lift?
The most common form of face lift is referred to as the J-Lift plastic surgery, which is a form of facial rejuvenation. While there are many other forms of face lifts, the J-Lift is the most natural procedure, involving little to no “plastic” supplements. This procedure involves tightening the skin around the face, neck, cheeks, and jawline for a smoother, healthier, and younger complexion and appearance. Those who have had face lifts have claimed that they are highly effective and take years off the face.
So how does a face lift, or J-Lift work?
Physicians and plastic surgeons make hairline incisions near the ears. The muscles are then stretched and tightened and then re-attached, to complete the surgical procedure. Afterwards, the cheeks, neck, and jawline all appear smoother, healthier, and younger, making the J-Lift procedure successful, and a great option for those middle-aged persons who want to look younger and feel great, and who also want to get rid of turkey wattle neck.
What are the aftereffects of a J-Lift?
Those who have considered a face lit or a J-Lift might wonder about the aftereffects of the procedure. Since the J-Lift is mostly a natural procedure, it is quick yet thorough, and is the perfect solution for patients who are looking for immediate recoveries. There is little to no bruising. Furthermore, most J-Lift procedures can even be done without anesthesia. Some minor pain and swelling is possible, however, patients will only need to wear bandages for the first twenty-four hours after the procedure. Patients will also be back on their feet and be able to continue daily activities and life normally after only five days.
Is a J-Lift right for you?
If you are middle-aged, or look older than you actually are, or have turkey wattle neck that you are really self-conscious of, then a J-Lift is right for you. A J-Lift is a great and permanent solution to ridding the checks and neck of unwanted fat and loose skin, and tightening the muscles and jawline in such a way that makes skin look beautiful and younger.
