What to expect from recovery following the neck lift procedure

Woman Touching Soft Smooth Skin On Neck The neck lift procedure is just one of several cosmetic surgeries available at The Bougainvillea Clinique of Winter Park, FL. Dr. Walt Sweeney and his team are committed to ensuring patients have all the information they need to fully understand aesthetic surgery’s risks–and rewards. Those considering a neck lift will want to ask about the recovery process to prepare for their post-operative healing properly.

What to expect during recovery from the neck lift surgical procedure

Recovery times vary from individual to individual but are typically relatively short. Many feel well enough to return to their work and other normal activities within a week. It is essential that you follow your surgeon’s instructions during recovery to ensure the best possible results.

Most people report minimal pain or discomfort after the procedure. Dr. Walt Sweeney will prescribe medication to help you manage any pain or discomfort you may experience if over-the-counter pain medications are insufficient. You might also have some bruising and swelling after the procedure, which should subside within a week or two. You are provided with specific instructions on caring for your incisions to promote healing and minimize the risk of infection.

Should I continue my normal activities after my procedure?

It is critical to avoid strenuous activity or heavy lifting for at least a few weeks after your procedure. However, you will likely need to take it easy for the first week or so and then gradually resume normal activities as you feel more comfortable. Dr. Walt Sweeney will inform you when it is safe to return to your normal activity levels, including work, school, and social activities.

Will I get the results I desire from my neck lift procedure?

Most people are delighted with their results from neck lift surgery. The results are usually long-lasting, provided you maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight. Be sure to discuss your goals and expectations with your surgeon at The Bougainvillea Clinique before having the procedure to ensure that neck lift surgery is right for you. Dr. Walt Sweeney can ensure you have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with this and other plastic surgeries.
