How to Speed Up Neck Lift Recovery

Neck Lift | Morristown NJIn this day and age, you don’t have to go under the knife to temporarily get rid of fine lines and wrinkles across your face and forehead. With dermal fillers and Botox you can get what is called a liquid facelift which helps you temporarily correct loose and sagging skin on your face without surgery. But, one thing a lot of patients run into is a smooth, youthful complexion and then loose sagging skin on their neck. Luckily, with a surgical neck lift, we can help you tighten the skin on your neck which will give you a more elegant looking neckline. To make sure that you recover as quickly as possible, we have created a list of a few things that you can do.

Don’t Ice

Typically when patients have postoperative inflammation, we encourage them to ice the area. With a neck lift, however, that’s the last thing that you should do. Why? Because it can restrict blood flow and cut off your oxygen supply. Instead, you can take an over-the-counter- nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug like Ibuprofen.

Keep Your Head Elevated

The good news and bad news about neck lift surgery recovery is that it takes about two weeks for you to fully recover. Although sitting in bed for a long time may make you feel restless, it can also be the perfect excuse to not do anything but watch movies and read all day long. While you are in bed, make sure that you prop your head up so that you are elevated. Keeping your head and neck elevated will help you reduce swelling and it will also help you drain any fluids from your neck. In some instances, we will place a tube from your incisions site to help drain fluid and speed up recovery.

When we send you home from a neck lift surgery, we will make sure that you and whoever is taking care of you has a hard copy of recovery tips and tricks. If you have any questions or concerns at any point during recovery, we are here to help.

3 Benefits of a Liquid Facelift

Facial Fillers Chester, NJYou may think that in order for you to get a facelift that you have to go under the knife, but Dr. Weinstein has a secret for you: you don’t. With a liquid facelift, Dr. Weinstein can give you a similar look without the surgery. By using a combination of fillers and Botox, Dr. Weinstein will make strategic injections across your face to help you get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, and add more volume to any lax skin. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of this procedure

No Recovery Time

One of the things that deters a lot of patients from a traditional surgical facelift is the fact that they have to spend time recovering. If you live a busy life either raising a family or working, the last thing that you have time to do is lay in bed for a few weeks recovering. With a liquid facelift, there is no real recovery required. The only thing we will ask you to do is not to exercise for 24 hours afterwards so that everything settles just fine.

Real Results

Our patients keep coming back to Botox and fillers for a variety of reasons, but the biggest one is that they give people real results every time. Even though you won’t see the results from Botox for about 3-5 days after your injections, you will see results from your fillers almost immediately.

You Have More Control

The fun thing about a liquid facelift is that Dr. Weinstein can start out small, see how you like it, and then add more fillers as he goes on; that way you have more control over your results. This kind of control, helps our patients feel more confident.
