4 Ways to Prepare for Your Neck Lift Surgery
1. Arrange for at-home care.
In the days immediately after your neck lift, you may be groggy from post-anesthesia effects, as well as potential prescription medications. That’s why it’s important to have family members or friends visit you during the first 72 hours after your surgery, just to check in on your progress.
This way, if you need any assistance, you’ll have someone at home who can help you.
2. Stop taking certain medications.
Your plastic surgeon will recommend the medications you may need to stop taking right before your surgery, especially if those medications carry the risk of blood clotting or blood thinning. Be sure to double-check with your plastic surgeon when you should start medication cessation, as well as when you can return back to your normal medication schedule post-neck lift.

3. Assess your weight.
A lot of patients plan on getting a neck lift, only to discover that their neck skin doesn’t keep up if they start losing weight after the surgery. It’s worth considering if you want to lose weight first before getting your neck lift done, as you don’t want to have another surgery to correct sagging skin that might materialize during post-surgical weight loss.
4. Learn about your pre-surgical diet.
Your plastic surgeon will recommend a specific diet to better prepare you for your surgery. For example, you may be asked to stop drinking and eating at midnight before your surgery. Make sure you’re 100% clear about diet expectations, as this is a pivotal part of being prepared for your neck lift surgery.
