Is a neck lift right for me?
What should I expect during my consultation?
At PHX Plastic Surgery, the satisfaction of our patients is our priority. That’s why we place a great deal of importance on your consultation. The goal of the consultation is to determine if a neck lift is the right choice for you. During your consultation, we will explain the full procedure to you and will ask you several questions including:
- Why do you want a neck lift?
- What are your expectations for the procedure?
- What is your desired outcome?
- Do you have any medical conditions or drug allergies?
- Are you currently undergoing any medical treatments?
- What is your current use of medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drugs?
- Have you had any previous surgeries? If so, what were they?
In addition to asking these questions, we will use your consultation to evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors you may have, discuss your neck lift options, examine and measure your neck, take photographs for your medical record, recommend a course of treatment, discuss likely outcomes of a neck lift and any risks or potential complications, and answer your questions.
What should I expect before my neck lift?
Before your neck lift, you may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust your current medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that may increase bleeding.
We will also give you special instructions about what to do the night before and morning of your surgery and regarding your post-operative care and follow-up appointments.
We will be constantly available to answer any questions you may have and to help to make your neck lift experience as smooth as possible.

The results of a neck lift are long-lasting, and you can expect to see a rejuvenated, younger-looking neck in the mirror after you have healed from your surgery. The experience, education, and skill of our Plastic Surgeon enable them to perform neck lifts with the precision that is required for optimal results.
