Is a Neck Lift painful?

Neck tightening surgery is not an especially painful procedure, though you may experience slight discomfort, due to the tightness of the skin.

There are some common side effects involved with a neck lift surgery, none of which are very extreme. With modern techniques pain and swelling is slight. You may or may not take the simple painkiller provided by your surgeon. You may also experience some bruising, which will naturally fade over the next two weeks. Any scars that you have following the procedure are well hidden and will also fade over time. We offer an excellent scar aftercare treatment to ensure that your scars remain as minimal as possible.

The skin itself may feel numb after surgery, but sensation will return over the next few weeks. Men may find shaving odd during this period. Be gentle with your neck area when washing, shaving etc.
