Do you have loose, saggy skin on your face and neck? Gravity, age, and stress, are just a few of the factors that can cause the face to age, but a face and neck lift can restore a more youthful appearance. What areas of the face will the procedure improve, and how long will it take to heal after a face and neck lift.
Face and neck lift
A combination face and neck lift is done to firm sagging jowls, and restore naturally youthful contours to the face and neck. The procedure involves the tightening of the skin and underlying muscles. In some cases liposuction may be used to get rid of fat under the chin, and redefine the jawline.
How long will it take to heal after a face and neck lift?
Swelling is the most significant side-effect after a face and neck lift, but patients may also experience some bruising, especially during the first 2 weeks. The swelling can take up to 6 weeks to fully resolve.
Physicians generally advise patients to prepare for a 2 week recovery period.However, it’s important to remember that healing time will vary between patients, as it is affected by factors such as the surgical approach used, and your overall health.
It is also advisable to closely follow the post-operative instructions of your surgeon, to ensure that recovery takes place as anticipated.
