Restoring Your Youthful You

What to Expect

Before, During, & After Your Neck Lift in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation

If you're interested in a neck lift in Houston, you'll first meet with a physician for a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your goals, medical history, skin type and tone, face shape, severity of sagging, and more.

2. Review Your Treatment Plan.

When it comes to your neck lift Houston plastic surgeons Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on the best approach for rejuvenating your jawline and neck. We build a highly personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures to achieve the best possible results.

3. Make Your Decision.

At Heights Plastic Surgery, our mission is to give you all of the information you need to decide what will work best for your desires, timeline, and budget. After we make recommendations, we give you the space and time to make your own decision about your neck lift surgery.

4. Schedule Your Neck Lift.

We will schedule your neck lift—an outpatient procedure performed in our private, on-site surgery center—for a day and time that works best for you. You'll want to factor in about 1 to 2 weeks of downtime from everyday activities and work after your procedure.

5. Arrive for Surgery

We will provide you with all the ways you can best prepare for the procedure well in advance of your neck lift in Houston. When you arrive, we will escort you to our state-of-the-art surgical suite, review our process in detail once more, and administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

6. Getting Your Neck Lift

Your highly skilled Houston Neck Lift surgeon will be in the operating room from start to finish, executing every detail of your agreed-upon surgical plan. Make sure you have a plan for getting home after your procedure, as you will not be able to drive yourself.

7. Follow Up.

Following your neck lift Houston plastic surgeons at Heights Plastic Surgery will also book you for follow-up visits to meet with your surgeon to monitor the area. This important step ensures you are healing properly, safely, and efficiently.
