A saggy neck is a term used to describe a condition where the skin around the neck becomes loose, creased, or wrinkled, and begins to sag. This condition is also known as a “”turkey neck”” due to its resemblance to the wattle of a turkey.
The sagging of the neck skin is often caused by ageing, weight loss, or genetics. As a person ages, the skin on the neck becomes thinner and loses elasticity, causing it to droop and sag.
Other factors that can contribute to a saggy neck include excessive sun exposure, smoking, and poor nutrition. These factors can also accelerate the ageing process and cause the skin to lose its elasticity, making it more prone to sagging.
A saggy neck can be a source of cosmetic concern for many people, and may make a person feel self-conscious about their appearance. While there are various cosmetic treatments to combat this issue, like neck lift surgery and liposuction, it’s worth noting that not everyone prefers to opt for surgical methods. Although not delivering surgical results, non-invasive options such as Profhilo, Botox, and HIFU, can still be effective in tightening and firming the skin around the neck.
