Getting Rid of That Turkey Gobbler



Don’t Leave It Hanging Until The Holidays!

CINCINNATI, OHIO – October 11, 2011 – There is one kind of gobbler that most folks are thankful to be without – and that is a turkey gobbler or waddler dangling from their own neck. “Many of my patients begin to see signs of a “turkey gobbler” or “waddler” sometime during their late 30’s,” says Dr. Jon E. Mendelsohn, medical director of the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center. “In fact, says Mendelsohn, “The “gobbler” can happen to even the fittest of athletes such as runners, as their skin often has poor elasticity from long-term exposure to the elements.”

What causes a turkey “gobbler” or “waddler”? “A true “gobbler,” says Mendelsohn can be caused by several factors: a deposition of fatty tissue in the neck area, a loss of elasticity, and the overall effects of gravity taking their toll over time.”

According to Mendelsohn, “The majority of my patients over the age of 30 come to me for some sort of eyelid procedure – whether it be a lift to the upper eyelid area, removing fatty deposits, or resurfacing the lower eyelid area. Most people do benefit dramatically from this procedure, but often neglect the lower portion of their face, such as the “waddler.” They then return to do the lower portion of their face as well, for a more balanced look.”

Mendelsohn added, “To get the maximum effect, I often advise patients to rejuvenate the jowls, jaw line, and cheek folds as well. Our Advanced Face-Lift takes about 45 minutes, and rejuvenates and lifts or tightens the entire face, including the “waddler,” in a very subtle and natural-looking way.” He went on, “The Advanced Lift achieves the best features of the mini and traditional lifts with minimal downtime, and with 75% less incisions than a traditional lift. This lift supports and secures the structure of the crucial anatomy and keeps the patient looking great for years. Most patients have a natural and presentable appearance in just several days, allowing them to get rid of that turkey “gobbler” before the holidays!”
