Is there a plastic surgery to remove a "gobbler" under chin? It's not fat, but extra skin. I would like to see photos of post procedure.

Remove Gobbler Under Chin
Thank you for your question.
A Neck Lift or Facelift with Platysmaplasty is the Plastic Surgery procedure to remove the Gobbler under the chin or the "turkey Neck Deformity."
See an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
A cheek and neck lift or a facelift will get rid of the gobbler under our chin
The extra skin needs to be removed to look better. This is best accomplished by doing a cheek and neck lift or a facelift in which the extra skin is released from the muscles and redraped out the back behind and in front of the ears. Check the photos on my web site.
A turkey gobbler neck is often just skin. This is best treated with a neck lift which can be done as an outpatient.
