I’m interested in getting a neck lift and I’m wondering if this has to be performed in a hospital.
A neck lift does not need to be performed in a hospital. The neck lift 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 neck lift procedure. The skin, muscle, and fat of the neck will all be addressed in a neck lift. Your recovery should be about a week or two depending upon the amount of surgery required to rejuvenate your neck.
