Before and During the Procedure
Before a neck surgery, we will complete a detailed medical evaluation of your health and medical history. The neck surgery is preferably performed on individuals who are physically healthy and a nonsmoker.The patient will be advised to avoid tobacco products, alcohol beverages, definite blood-thinning supplements and medications for a number of days before the neck surgery.To begin with, the patient will be placed under the influence of general or local anaesthesia. The surgeon will create incisions around the ears. Removal of the loose skin and excess tissues will be executed next. A liposuction could also be done to remove fat deposits. Once finished, the incisions are closed.
After the Procedure
The length of the recovery period largely depends on the extent of the neck surgery. But it typically takes one to three weeks.Instantly following the neck surgery, discomfort, numbness, and swelling can be experienced but these can be managed with prescribed medication. To control swelling, aid proper healing and support the new form, a bandage or compression garment is wrapped into the surgical site within a number of days.It would normally take a few months for the final results to be completely visible, but it is worth the wait.
