If you’ve had enough of sagging skin around your neck area and have elected to do something about it by getting a necklift procedure, there are some important things to keep in mind in the days leading up to your surgery date.

First and foremost, if you happen to be a smoker, it’s strongly advised that you stop before your scheduled necklift. Smoking reduces blood circulation to the skin, which can have an impact on the body’s healing process. You should try to quit smoking for at least two weeks leading up to surgery. In addition, a multivitamin and vitamin C supplement should be taken twice a day to optimize your health for the procedure and healing that follows.
