Turkey Neck Resulting from face lift

I had a facelift six years ago. I had a very negative result on the left side of my face. My left ear sticks out somewhat (both of my ears were small and did not stick out), I have a three-inch strip on the left side of my face that feels very tight and is numb. The most-annoying side effect is that I have turkey neck on the left side of my face (which I never had before). Whenever I talk, skin under the left side of my chin looks like turkey neck. It is very visible, it moves, and feels very tight.

It has gotten worse in the last year. I can't stand it. Do you know what caused this turkey neck and how it can be resolved?

Re: Turkey Neck Resulting from face lift

well, I'm not a plastic surgeon, but it sure sounds like you had some kind of funky face lift to me. My first suggestion is to go to a board-certified plastic surgeon in Orange county who specializes in faces. My second suggestion is never to go back to the surgeon who did the first face lift. Your face should NOT look like this unless you are suffering from some kind of paralysis on one side of your face. I'm thinking there is some kind of incorrect muscle plication that was done. What kind of facelift did you have? Did you get a neck lift? Was this threads or a lifestyle lift or a full SMAS lift?
