What to Expect After a Neck Lift
Following your neck lift procedure, your neck will be bruised and swollen, and will feel tight and numb. Bruising will resolve over the next five days, though the sensation of tightness and numbness may remain for several months. Do not apply ice to the neck, as this could compromise blood flow and result in skin death. It is recommended that you keep your head elevated above your heard to minimize swelling during recovery. It is important that you follow Dr. Cusimano’s specific post-op instructions to ensure a quick and smooth recovery.
