Neck Lift Recovery
After your Neck Lift, we will monitor you in our recovery room as you come out of sedatives. Once you are released by Dr. Landford, you will be able to return home to recover in a more comfortable environment. We strongly recommend having a friend or family member available to take you home and provide some assistance around the house for the first few days.
While you will experience mild to moderate pain and discomfort post-op, most patients find their surgery recovery to be much easier overall than expected. There will be some swelling and bruising during the initial phase of healing, with swelling typically subsiding after 48 hours, and most bruising being gone within two weeks. Recovery times will also vary from patient to patient based on several factors, including the extent of the procedure and the patient’s overall health.
Most patients can return to work in the range of one to two weeks, and gradually resume their exercise routine about a month post-surgery.
