Neck Lift Recovery Time

Neck lift surgery takes 1 - 2 hours and is an outpatient procedure. After the procedure, you will wear a compressing garment around your neck, and your doctor might place a drainage tube to prevent liquid from accumulating.

The first day after your cosmetic surgery is usually the most uncomfortable for patients; you might feel emotional and discouraged about the pain. 

Your doctor will provide instructions to follow while you're recovering at your home. Your doctor will give you pain medication to manage the pain.

After a month, you can return to normal activities, sports, and work. You may still have some tightness and even minor swelling and bruising, but it will only be apparent to you.

How is Neck Lift Surgery Performed?

Depending on the changes you'd like to see on your neck, you have two neck lift choices: a traditional neck lift incision or a limited incision neck lift.

If your surgeon opts for the traditional neck lift, expect it to be made from the hairline at the level of sideburn and continues down around the ear, and ends in the posterior hair.

In both approaches, the surgeon will remove the fat tissues underlying the neck skin and tighten the muscles.


1. Final consultation with your surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your neck lift specialist surgeon. During this session you are expected to inform the surgeon about your medical record, allergies, and if you’re currently taking any medication.

Even after telling your surgeon about your medical record, you must go through some medical tests. Afterward, you will discuss the procedure in detail. If you are on the same page with your surgeon, he/she will make an illustration by drawing some marks on your face as he/she prepares you for the surgery.  

2. Taking the anesthesia

When the test results are out and your surgeon is satisfied, you will be then given anesthesia. Surgeons usually prefer general anesthesia, but sometimes they can administer local anesthesia or sedation. Your surgeon will choose the best anesthesia for you.  

3. Operation

Once the anesthesia comes into effect, the surgeon will then begin performing the procedure. Depending on the changes you’d like to see on your neck, you have two neck lift choices: a traditional neck lift incision or a limited incision neck lift.

Suppose your surgeon opts for the traditional neck lift, expect it to be made from the hairline at the level of sideburn, and it continues down, around the ear and it ends in the posterior hair.

But when it’s a limited incision neck lift, incisions will also only be made around the ear and they will be a bit shorter. Either way, when incisions are made, fat deposits will be redistributed from the jowls and neck. The tissues underlying the neck skin will be repositioned as the platysma muscle is tightened.

What Should I Expect from a Neck Lift Procedure?

  • You should minimize your facial movements (smiling, chewing, yawning, talking, etc.) for the first few days.
  • Once the postoperative bandages are removed, you may begin to take a shower. You should wash your hair and your face gently with sensitive products recommended by your surgeon.
  • Post-operative bruising and swelling may persist for 10 days. You can also experience numbness around the incisions.
  • You should use the medications which will be given to you by your surgeon.
  • You should avoid using alcohol, aspirin, and ibuprofen for one week after the surgery.
  • Daily activities can be gradually resumed after two weeks. You may resume your exercise routine after four weeks.
  • The skin of your face will be very sensitive to sunlight after neck lift surgery; therefore, you need to protect your skin with sunscreen. You should also avoid saunas and steam baths for four weeks after your surgery.
  • You should also adjust your sleeping position to avoid damaging the incisions.
  • Recovery from the neck lifting procedure takes several weeks. It is very important to follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions and to inform your surgeon about any unexpected changes you have observed and experienced discomfort.

  • If you are allergic to drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.

  • Avoid smoking before the surgery.

  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So it would be best if you did not take alcohol before surgery.

  • Follow your doctor-prescribed medication that adjusts your current medication.
