Talking About Turkey Neck

Talking About Turkey Neck
It is almost Thanksgiving. Let’s talk turkey - turkey neck, that is.

Turkey neck is the nickname for the loose, sagging or baggy skin that hangs off the neck. It is a consequence of losing skin elasticity because of aging, genetics and weight loss. Turkey neck can add years to your appearance and may even make you feel self-conscious about wearing anything but a turtleneck sweater.

Turkey neck can be hard to get rid of on your own - it does not respond to exercise or a healthy diet, and many over-the-counter skin-tightening creams make empty promises or yield only temporary results. Dr. Johnson can help treat your turkey neck and sagging skin this fall using the powerful skin-tightening therapy Thermage.

Cryolipo What?

Cryolipo What?

It seems like there is always some "new" thing hitting the market of cosmetic treatments - a new injectable here, a new surgery there and an endless supply of new lotions or potions making promises to erase the signs of aging overnight. While some of these procedures, treatments and products do what they claim, some leave patients with other, unintended effects, too.

One of those procedures is "fat freezing," also known as cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that causes fat cells to die by freezing them through your skin. Sounds great, right? Well, before you schedule that appointment, we just want to mention a few things. First, although the fat cells are destroyed, the fat itself moves to a different part of your body. Also, recent studies suggest that there could be a risk associated with the treatment - a complication known as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) in which areas of hardened localized fat develop. Although the condition is treatable, it can be frustrating and leave individuals with unsightly or uneven final results.

What Is the Alternative?

Don't get discouraged - there's still hope. It's called SmartLipo.

Why Can't I Get Rid of Stubborn Leg Fat?
There are a few reasons why you can't get rid of stubborn leg fat through exercise or a healthy diet. Genetics, diet and stress all play a role in why your body holds on to fat. Women also tend to hold on to fat more readily than men because fat and fertility have a relationship: When you lose too much fat, your body could stop menstruation.

What’s Really Happening When You Perform Liposuction?


According to Dr. Johnson of Innovations Medical, under our skin is a layer of deep fat cells, and under that is muscle. The deep fat cells have connective tissue between the cells and it is this structure of connective tissue that holds the fat together. Almost all the volume is the actual fat cells. When doing liposuction the fat cells are removed and literally vacuumed out of the body. Most of the connective tissue is left intact. Over about six weeks to two months the skin will begin to collapse or shrink. Because the large fat cells are no longer to take up space, the skin it will able to return to its former shape.
