“Turkey Neck or “Waddle” Surgery for Men
Dr. Ricciardelli specializes in male neck lift surgery. This surgery can make a tremendous change and restore a very youthful contour to the neck. As men age, the chin and jawline become less defined, with extra fatty tissue deposits under the chin. This usually begins in the late thirties and early forties. In the late forties to early fifties, the neck sin begins to sag, creating a “turkey neck” or waddle. In addition, vertical bands form when the neck muscles called the platysma loosen. All of this can be accentuated by a button shirt and neck tie. At the Summit we are keenly aware of your desire to restore this area to its former glory.
