What is the recovery time for a neck lift?

If you would like to tighten the loose, sagging skin on your neck, a neck lift is the ideal solution. A neck lift is an effective way to remove excess skin, and refine and contour the jawline. But what exactly is a neck lift, and what is the recovery time.

Neck Lift

A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that is done to remove excess skin and fat from the neck, in order to refine and contour the jawline and neck. A neck lift is an outpatient procedure that typically takes 2 hours to perform.

What is the recovery time for a neck lift?

It takes about 2 weeks to recover from a neck lift, but this may vary based on the extent of the procedure. However, in order to ensure optimal healing after a neck lift, patients must follow the post-surgical instructions of their plastic surgeon.

What to expect during neck lift recovery?

There is generally some swelling and bruising after a neck lift, and patients may also experience mild pain. A bandage is usually placed around the face and neck to provide support, and patients are advised to sleep with their head slightly elevated to help minimize swelling.

Patients are encouraged to rest for the first few days after neck lift surgery, but are usually able to restart normal activities after one week. Swelling may persist for up to 12 weeks after a neck lift, so it may take several months to see the full results.
