What Should I Expect In The Week Before my Neck Lift Surgery?
Preparation is as important as recovery to ensure the best-looking results possible. There are several things you can do to prepare yourself for a neck lift. You will be given a specific set of instructions from your specialist which may include:
- Take/Adjust Current Medications
- Avoid Aspirin/Anti-Inflammatories
- Avoid Certain Supplements
Additionally, you will get instructions on what to do the night before and the morning of your surgery. These instructions may vary depending on your particular procedure.
Quitting smoking several weeks, and preferably months prior to surgery is important to improve the health and vascularity of tissues, and is critical for healing.
What’s a Neck Lift Procedure Like?
The best way to prepare for a neck lift is similar to any surgery. First off, don’t worry about pain. Our team at Specialty Aesthetic Surgery can ensure a painless, expertly-handled procedure with anesthesia. Your procedure is unique to you and may involve a couple of different methods, so consult with our team to prepare specifically for the procedure that you and our specialists have arrived on.
Additionally, neck lifts are outpatient procedures so you’ll need to make sure that you have someone with you to take you to the office and back home.
