Turkey wattle deformity refers to the excess loose skin seen in the central neck under the chin. This is treatable in two different ways.
Traditional neck lift as described in a separate section can remove a Turkey Wattle Deformity. However, in some situations patients might request a less involved procedure. An alternative to traditional Neck Lift is a Midline Neck Skin Excision.
This procedure is quick and requires only local anesthesia or mild sedation.
The disadvantage is a permanent straight midline scar. However, the scar blends in with time and is acceptable to most patients. This procedure is excellent for patients who are not good candidates for general anesthesia or a prolonged surgical procedure.
