Neck Lift Surgery
The appearance of your lower face and neck can be greatly improved with the help of a neck lift plastic surgery. Patients have an opportunity to have their concerns and doubts about the procedure cleared during the pre-op consultation. They can also ask relevant questions about the surgeon’s practice. Most dedicated surgeons will put it as a priority to inform their patients about the various aspects of undergoing a neck lift surgery and to take a well-thought of decision. Surgeons may recommend getting a neck lift or a neck lift surgery in conjunction with other procedures as well. Facelift and liposuction are the usual procedures performed along with a neck lift surgery. Patients should write down all questions they have before the consultation so as not to miss out on having any doubts clarified. Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides neck lift surgery to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Making an Independent and Informed Decision
It’s vital that the decision to have the cosmetic surgery performed is the patient’s alone. It should not be influenced by friends, celebrities, or magazines. Patients should sign consent forms before the procedures that mention their decision is voluntary. The form should also point out that the patient understands all potential risks involved in the procedure. Ideally, patients should read through the cosmetic surgeon’s website to understand more about their experience, practice, and background. If required, patients can also request for a brief tour of the office during the pre-operative consultation. They should also try becoming more familiar with the practice by meeting a staff member.
These are a few questions the patients should consider asking their surgeon.
What is your experience performing plastic surgery?
Board certified plastic surgeons receive extensive training. They usually offer more successful results as compared to less experienced surgeons. These plastic surgeons are also better equipped to develop customized surgical plans and deal with emergency situations. Their plans can be tailor made to suit a patient’s specific needs.
Where would you perform the surgery?
Patients typically undergo neck lift plastic surgery at a hospital, surgery center or accredited private surgical suite. Each option has its own set of drawbacks and benefits along with varied costs. Ideally, surgeons need to have operating privileges at more than one hospital or surgical center. They are also required to work with an anesthesiologist if the procedure is being performed under general anesthesia.
How much does a neck lift surgery cost?
Neck lift plastic surgery is an elective procedure. Your insurance company may not cover the costs. This is why you need to know about the surgical costs involved, various payment methods, and available financing options. Estimated costs should account for all pre and post procedural expenses.
Are there any complications or risks involved in the procedure?
Patients need to be cognizant of the risks involved with the surgery to make an enlightened decision. A committed surgeon will make sure that their patients are fully informed about the risks before they go ahead with the procedure. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove receives patients from Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and nearby areas for neck lift surgery.
