In brief: No other way

Surgery is usually the only way to deal with a turkey neck.

In brief: Turkey gobbler

Surgery is often the best/only way to really improve this deformity.
Depending on your exam findings, age, skin quality, etc this may be improved by laser liposuction, platysmaplasty with fat excision, neck lift or sometimes a combination of these procedures. Only way to know is to be evaluated by a plastic surgeon.

In brief: Just

Just as with any situation where skin is very loose and hanging, there is no option other than surgery (same situation as needing a tummy tuck for loose abdominal skin).
A facelift/necklift will help for sure, but you may need another in about 10 years on average.
