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.
Turkey Gobbler Surgery
The turkey gobbler can be due to extra skin, extra fat, platysmal banding, or a combination. There are several options for correction including liposuction, direct excision of the skin, platysmal plication, and lower face/neck lift surgery.
