How can I prepare for my neck lift?

ANSWER

Your surgeon will tell you to avoid certain medications before your surgery to lower your chance of excessive bleeding.

Tell your doctor about any drug allergies you have. You could have an allergic reaction to the anesthesia.

If you smoke, you will need to quit for at least 4 weeks before the surgery and 4 weeks after.

Eat a healthy diet. That will help your body heal.

You should plan to take at least a week off from work. Ask your doctor exactly how much time off you'll need.
