Question: I’m very interested in getting a neck lift. I’m a 38-year-old female and a turkey gobbler neck seems to be hereditary in my family regardless of weight. I’m not overweight, I’m very lean actually, but mine is already starting to make an appearance. When I have this procedure done, will I have to have it done to again in later years?
Answer: Some of the changes that occur in our face are hereditary. The “turkey gobbler” appearance can be improved with a neck lift. Given your age it is very important to consider a very localized procedure with incisions hidden. In the future as you age and change, these issues will sag and change which is normal. You may require further procedures on your face to continue to rejuvenate your face. It is impossible to tell you definitely when further procedures are necessary.
