If a neck left is done simultaneously, a small incision may or may not be made under the chin.

Two weeks before your schedule, you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines other than those that your doctor allows you to continue. People with diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.
