SURGERY: A neck lift procedure takes approximately 2 hours to perform. The procedure is done as an outpatient procedure with Anesthesia using IV sedation.
AFTER SURGERY: The downtime associated with a neck lift is approximately 2 weeks and the patient may return to exercise within 3 weeks. A patient may be discharged wearing a chin strap that is usually worn for 2 weeks. This chin strap gives the patient better support, improves circulation, and provides for better contouring.
