How long is the recovery period after a neck lift?
When can I return to work and normal daily activities after a neck lift? How long is the recovery period?
Recovery times can vary somewhat depending on your health and fitness. That said, in my practice are usually able to go out in public after about a week or so. Bruising is not predictable, but usually swelling is minimal at that time. One tip for you is to get Dermabond or Cover Makeup from your local department store before surgery to help camo signs of surgery.
You will need to reduce your activities for about 3-4 weeks. Final results will take up to a year.
Best to you.
