Examining the Facelift and Neck Lift
These two procedures – the facelift and neck lift – are often performed together to tighten facial muscles, smooth wrinkles, remove excess skin, and define the jaw line.
You can discuss your goals with Dr. Saadat to determine if either the facelift or neck lift – or both – are right for you.
A facelift and/or neck lift surgery, which takes several hours, requires a true expert and will help you face the world with confidence. It is generally performed under general anesthesia, so you will need someone to drive you home.
Recovery time from face and neck lifts vary, depending upon the person and the surgery. You may have swelling, bruising, stiffness, and some pain following the surgery. Most people can return to work and light activity after about two weeks; you should avoid direct sun contact for several months to help with healing.
