What would be the best option to reduce the beginning of turkey neck? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 15
Neck Lift vs. Kybella vs. Botox Cosmetic
Nonsurgical solutions may include:
- Botox to platysmal bands
To be sure what might be best for you, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
I'm 37, turkey neck runs in my family sadly.. I recently got radiesse put into my cheeks to lift the tissues.
Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation with a dermal filler or using cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks that will feminize the entire face. I strongly disagree with the "notion" that a dermal filler placed with tissues will lift adjacent tissues, especially when placed along the outsides of the cheeks. This can result in very large cheeks that widen and broaden the face making it less feminine.
A weak chin creates an imbalance making the nose appear larger, the mid face top heavy and the lower face look short that de-emphasizes the lips and allows early formation of a double chin. Chin augmentation using a chin implant will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick and highly effective.
If you have "jowls” these are sagging facial tissues and an indication for some form of a SMAS facelift. The underlying SMAS layer, of the face, must be dissected, lifted, trimmed and re-sutured (not merely folded or suspended with threads or sutures that will not last). The excess skin is then removed and the facelift incisions closed.
My most popular facelift is the minimally invasive, short incision facelift that has all the benefits of more invasive facelifts (traditional, mid-face, deep plane, cheek lift and subperiosteal facelifts) but with these added benefits:
- very small incisions
- minimal tissue dissection = less bruising and swelling = rapid recovery
- can be performed in 90 minutes or less, with or without general anesthesia
- no incisions within the hair = no hair loss
- excess fat can be removed
- excess skin removed
- cheeks, chin and jaw line can be augmented with dermal fillers (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or facial implants
- most patients fly back home to parts all over the world in as little as 3 days post-op
A full Neck Lift can be added that will allow tightening of the anterior neck bands (requires a general anesthetic and is a 4 1/2 hours surgery with drains and a pressure dressing).
Hope this helps.

It seems the bands are from muscle and not skin.
Botox can help muscular bands.
Fillers can be tricky to "lift" the neck, so start small.
