Neck lift is a popular plastic surgery procedure that can correct sagging skin in the neck area and remove neck bands and folds to create a more sculpted neck. Neck lift procedure will involve a few key steps, which will be performed by a cosmetic surgeon. The steps may slightly vary depending on whether the procedure is combined with a facelift or performed independently.
At the time of pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will explain the steps to the patient. Once the patient is aware about what the procedure entails, they will typically feel more confident and make better decisions in consultation with the surgeon.
The terrific and state of the art Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides neck lift surgery to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and other communities and suburbs in this area of the state.
Some amount of preparation will precede the neck lift surgery in order to ensure a safe and predictable procedure. If the patient is a smoker, they will be required to quit the habit for at least a specified time period. The schedule of any current medications such as blood thinners, NSAIDs and certain herbals and vitamins may have to be adjusted in consultation with the physician.
The surgeon will encourage the patient to follow a healthy diet and maintain a good exercise regimen prior to the surgery. They will advise the patient to arrange for transportation to return home after the plastic surgery and get aftercare if necessary. Working in
