Creams to tighten: There are no creams that will prevent recurrence of a turkey neck after a neck lift.

Turkey Wattle Neck: Using regular skin care on the neck is very helpful in improving overall look of the neck. The best way to prevent the turkey wattle neck from coming back is to avoid gaining and losing weight in cycles as it will loosen the skin again and make it sag. Maintaining your weight within 10lbs is ideal.

Not proven.: No creams have been shown to prevent extra skin from appearing.
