Many people are ashamed of showing their necks. The neck usually shows signs of aging earlier than other parts of the body. Also, sun exposure and extreme weight loss can make your neck look weak, loose and old. At this time, it is said that the neck has excess skin. These people always feel embarrassed that even in some cases it can lead to depression. Neck lift surgery can eliminate excess and loose skin, excess fat and weak muscle of the neck. Also, it gives the person a more youthful look with a lively, delicate and translucent neck and chin skin.
Preparing for neck lift surgery includes having a prior consultative meeting, in which the doctor clarifies whether the patient has a specific disease that does not permit this procedure, and evaluate the reasons that led them to resort to surgery of this type. The plastic surgeon examines the skin type, texture, thickness, and amount of subcutaneous fat tissue, and is it appropriate for such an operation only, or does the patient need to undergo another procedure as well (for example a face or forehead lift) or liposuction to get the best results. Besides, the doctor refers the patient to take tests as needed - many tests are usually not required except for the complete blood count (CBC) and blood chemistry test. Among older people, it is needed to take a Chest X-ray and/or an electrocardiogram (ECG). Consult the doctor about medications that the patient must stop taking before lifting the neck. It is forbidden to drink alcohol for 48 hours before the operation and should fast for 8 hours before surgery. Aspirin and other painkillers, including ibuprofen, should also be stopped for several weeks before surgery. You should also quit smoking a few weeks before and after surgery as smoking slows the recovery process after a neck lift. Patients should refrain from exercise the day before surgery. To reduce post-operative neck lift swelling, it is recommended to minimize pre-operative salt intake. If the patient intends to lose weight, the surgeon recommends reaching a fixed weight before performing the neck lift to achieve optimal results.
