Sagging areas, baggy jowls, loose neck skin, and fatty pockets under your chin can be attributed to a number of factors. Your neck, more so than your face, may reveal your age.
What Can I Expect From My Neck Lift Recovery?
After your procedure, you can expect recovery to last to four weeks. Although, for many individuals, recovery can move along more quickly. Some patients, instead of requiring the allotted time, find that two weeks of healing brings them back to their workplace. The thin tube draining extra fluid and the bandage that reduces swelling will be removed.
During your weeks of recovery, keeping the incision elevated and avoiding head movement will improve healing. Dr. Birely may give you medication for comfort and give you further instructions during this time. By the end of your recovery period, any scarring will begin to mature, and most likely, become less visible. You can then enjoy your new neck and facial appearance!
