The aftercare for neck-tightening
In the first days after the operation slight pain of the operated area can occur. The facial expressions and the mobility of the head can be limited, especially in combination with a facelift. In order to avoid pain as much as possible, we have developed a special concept for pain elimination in our clinic. The dressing applied in the surgery will be removed by the surgeon in the following days. The head should be kept as calm as possible during the first days after the operation so that the operating area does not swell up too much. So also speak little, chew a little and avoid many head twists. Looking in the mirror immediately after surgery occasionally causes irritation. For at first the face looks unfamiliar. The swelling changes the facial features, the facial expressions are limited and the scars are visible. However, the swelling, bruising and the resulting numbness of certain skin areas usually disappear completely during the weeks. A cooling of the face and the affected neck region and a corresponding protection support the healing.
Depending on the type of procedure, the specialist decides in advance the duration during which the compression product should be worn during neck tightening in order to obtain the best possible result.
Therefore, the first week after the operation is reserved for a break. Depending on the procedure, the first sutures are removed 7 days after surgery. However, in order to not endanger the healing process, freshly-operated people should avoid alcohol and nicotine. The first four weeks you should not do any sports. Nevertheless, newly-operated people can return to their normal everyday activities after only a few days. The scars fade rapidly, until they are only noticeable as narrow white lines. Most people resume their work ten to fourteen days after the necklift. After the second week, you will notice the positive result of the procedure - your contours are perceptible again.
Look forward to it!
With the right indication and realistic expectations, most patients are very satisfied with the results achieved. Improving the outward appearance often means the beginning of a new life. They have an improved sense of wellbeing and self-esteem.
