Questions to Ask Your Neck Lift SurgeonPosted on August 28, 2017
A sculpted and firm looking neck and lower face can make an individual appear slimmer and more youthful. At the time of pre-op consultation for neck lift cosmetic surgery, the patient should be prepared to ask questions and clear all their doubts and concerns about the procedure as well as the surgeon’s professional background.
A dedicated surgeon will encourage the patient to ask questions and will provide clear and detailed answers in a patient-friendly language.
The first goal of the surgeon will be to help ensure that the patient makes a well-considered decision about neck lift. Board certified and judicious plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala provides neck lift and various other procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.
Are you board certified in plastic surgery by the ABPS?
For an aesthetic procedure such as neck lift, the patient should ideally select a surgeon who has a board certification in plastic surgery from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). ABPS is the most authoritative board, which follows a rigorous selection process to certify a limited number of surgeons. ABPS board certified surgeons typically invest in high quality standards and best practices to deliver exceptional results to their patients.
Have you performed neck lift and facelift before?
Procedures such as neck lift should be performed by a surgeon who has sufficient experience in doing such procedures. The procedure must be customized to match with the patient’s facial anatomy and overall figure in order to create harmonious and natural looking outcomes. If the surgeon understands the nuances of neck lift, they will be able to achieve best results in a less invasive way.
Where would you perform my neck lift surgery?
The surgeon may recommend a hospital, an accredited surgery center or a private surgical suite to perform neck lift cosmetic surgery.
Each option comes with its own costs and benefits, and the surgeon will help the patient make the right choice. An astute surgeon would have staff privileges at one of the local hospitals or surgery centers. They should work with experienced or board certified anesthesiologists if neck lift is going to involve general anesthesia.
How much will the neck lift procedure cost?
The sticker price is an important aspect for most patients because neck lift is an elective surgery, not covered by insurance. The patient should feel free to ask questions about the costs involved, including pre- and post-surgical expenses, the methods of payment acceptable, and options for third party financing. If neck lift is combined with facelift, the surgeon may be able to offer a rebate.
What are the risks and complications involved?
Like any other surgical procedure, neck lift will have certain potential risks and complications associated with it. The patient should have clear information about these in order to make an informed choice. A committed surgeon will present a realistic picture of the procedure and help the patient make an objective decision.
