I’m interested in getting a necklift and I’m wondering if this has to be performed in a hospital.
A necklift does not need to be performed in a hospital. The necklift can be performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation or general anesthesia if you prefer. You will be discharged when you are able to eat and drink following your necklift procedure. The skin, muscle, and fat of the neck will all be addressed in a necklift. Your recovery should be about a week or two depending upon the amount of surgery required to rejuvenate your neck.
