Ditch Turkey Neck or Pelican Neck with a Neck Lift in NYC
Commonly referred to as “turkey neck" or "pelican neck," this dropping skin can make you appear to have a double chin and add years to your appearance. New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Darrick Antell, can remove this loose skin under your chin, with what he likes to call a “wattlectomy.” Before you consider yourself of the pelicanidae species, consider the procedure that can give you a fresh, younger look!
“Wattlectomy” uses direct excision to cut away fatty tissue. Performed under a local anesthesia with mild sedation, this procedure takes about an hour to perform. Afterwards, sutures remain in place for about a week, but you can return to work within two days, confident with the sleek contour of your new neckline!
This procedure gives excellent results by removing hanging skin under the chin, offering a better outcome than a traditional neck lift in NYC. With the wattlectomy, a “Z” plasty is placed approximately at the incision’s midpoint, helping to disguise the scar, which though permanent, fades over time.
Even better, costs of the procedure run less than a traditional neck lift. For an additional fee, a patient can add other procedures at the same time, such as eyelid surgery in NY, or chin implants in NY for a more complete facial rejuvenation.
