What to Expect After a Neck Lift

Not everyone is happy with how his or her neck looks. The neck is one of the first areas that can show the signs of aging. Skin that is saggy and loose has less elasticity and often the neck can be replete with excess fat, excess skin or band lifts. All of these problems can be fixed by way of a neck lift. Many people decide to have a combination of a facelift and neck lift together.

A neck lift can be performed in one of three ways- it can be done by way of liposuction, cervicoplasty or platysmaplasty. All of the options will be discussed with you when you have your first appointment with the plastic surgeon. The plastic surgeon will also let you know what medications and vitamins you should refrain from taking as you prepare for your surgery. The reason for this is some types of medications and vitamins have the ability to thin their blood and this is not good when it comes to surgery because it can increase the chance of excess bleeding before and after the procedure.

In anticipating your surgery ask for at least a week off of work to recover. The plastic surgeon may strongly caution you to take more time off dependent on your individual circumstances and the type of work you do. Many people need time to recover physically as well as psychologically from having surgery.

Whether you are having cervicoplasty, platysmaplasty or a combination of one of these with liposuction prepare for yourself an area of your home that can be deemed a home recovery spot. When you come home make sure you have in place ice packs, towels and gauze, a thermometer, an adequate supply of comfortable and loose fitting clothes (making sure to avoid all pull over tops), and antibacterial ointment to apply to the incisions. If you live alone make sure the telephone is within close reach to where you plan to lie or sit (such as close to your bed, couch or a comfortable chair), and have plenty of pillows to keep your head as elevated and as comfortable as possible. It is strongly recommended that someone stay with you for at least the first day or two after surgery so they can help you where it is necessary.

It takes time to heal and everyone's recovery period will not be the same. It is not always easy to be patient but try your best to keep your spirits up. There will be bruising and swelling for the first few days after surgery and other sensations might be felt as well, such as burning, pulling, tingling and/or tightness. Numbness is also a common side effect of surgery. All of these symptoms should dissipate in a few days to a few weeks after surgery. For those who play sports do not participate for at least three to four weeks and the same goes for any vigorous exercise or physical activity.
