Toronto neck lift -post-surgical timeline
Recovery from neck lift in Toronto can be smooth and straightforward. Also known as a lower rhytidectomy, this cosmetic surgery is designed to reduce visible sagging in the jawline and neck. It’s somewhat less extensive than a facelift, and just a few, small incisions are typically enough to tighten muscle and skin. The neck lift recovery timeline is roughly as follows:
For the first few days at home, you should have nothing social or work-related planned. You’ll want to rest, especially if you’ve had a general anaesthetic which can leave patients feeling groggy. You’ll be provided with the contact number of your OR nurse or surgeon in case you have any concerns after hours. The care after a neck lift isn’t complicated, and you’ll be able to watch TV, read, rest and pass the time with light activity.
Neck Lift Recovery
Be sure to follow all your surgeon’s instructions. You’ll likely be advised to avoid swimming, baths and hot tubs ( along with other sources of infection) until your incisions are healed. You’ll also need to refrain from heavy lifting, working out or tanning. Most neck lift patients wear a soft, compression chin band for 1 – 2 weeks following their procedure. This helps to conform tissue to its new shape and reduce swelling.
Though the discomfort isn’t described as severe, it is recommended that you take pain medication as directed so you feel great and sleep well.
