One-sided loose skin after a Toronto facelift procedure
A #facelift procedure is an invasive surgery but a very gratifying one.
It is also true that previous threads make a #facelift and #necklift procedure more complicated.
You are still very early post-surgery. Healing does not always happen at the same time between the right and left; swelling, bruising, position at night, etc.
Most of us plastic surgeons in #Toronto will recommend to wait 3-6 months after a procedure before going back into the same surgical field. Going back to early will be met with more scarring and bleeding.
Once you've been patient and waited a bit longer, yes, the incision could be reopened and subsequent tightening could be performed.
Healing and surgery are not exact science and occasionally, small revisions are required.
I hope this helps!

At six months, you and your surgeon can discuss a revision.
Until then, let your healing proceed.
As long as you see slow improvement, no matter how slow, all is usually well.
If your healing stalls, a revision can be done in the summer.
