What questions should I ask my plastic surgeon about neck lift surgery?A contoured and firm looking lower face and neck can make a person look slimmer and more youthful. During the neck lift plastic surgery pre-operative consultation, the patient should ask the surgeon any questions that they may have regarding the procedure or the surgeon’s background.

A committed surgeon will encourage the patient to ask questions and offer transparent and in-depth answers. The primary objective of the surgeon will be to enable the patient to make an enlightened decision about neck lift plastic surgery.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides neck lift to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding communities.


Are you Board Certified in Plastic Surgery by the ABPS?

Ideally, a board-certified plastic surgeon with certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) should perform a cosmetic surgery procedure such as neck lift. Surgeons who have been certified by the ABPS usually invest in best practice and high-quality standards and deliver excellent and safe results to their patients.


Have you Performed Neck Lift and Facelift before?

Only a surgeon with experience in facial and neck procedures should perform a procedure such as a neck lift plastic surgery.

The procedure should be customized to the patient’s unique facial structure and goals for desirable and harmonious looking results. In case the surgeon understands the intricacies of a neck lift, they will be able to attain the best outcomes in a minimally invasive way.


Where would you perform my Neck Lift Surgery?

For the neck lift plastic surgery, the surgeon may recommend an accredited surgery center, a hospital, or a private surgical suite as a surgical venue. Each option has associated costs and benefits, and the surgeon will assist the patient in making an appropriate choice.

The surgeon will likely have staff privileges at local hospitals and/or surgical centers. Furthermore, they would work with expert or board certified anesthesiologists if the neck lift will involve administering general anesthesia.


Can I see ‘Before and After’ Pictures of Other Neck Lift Patients?

Neck lift before and after pictures can enable a patient to develop realistic expectations from the procedure and understand if it is appropriate for their needs.


How much will the Neck Lift Procedure Cost?

The cost of the neck lift is an important starting point for many patients as it is an elective surgery which will not be eligible for insurance coverage.

The patient should ask questions related to the overall costs, pre and post-surgical expenses, payment methods, and the possibility of third-party financing. The surgeon may also be able to offer a rebate if the neck lift surgery is combined with a facelift.


What are the Risks and Complications involved?

Similar to any other surgical procedure, neck lift also has certain inherent risks and complications associated with it. The patient should understand these risks in detail manner to make a well-considered choice. A responsible surgeon will present a reasonable account of the procedure to enable the patient to make an informed choice.
