3wks post op from neck lift and I have alot of vertical wrinkling of skin from the incision under chin.I had incisions around the ears as well. They are healing fine but this patch of wrinkly skin looks really bad. PC suggests massage and will be getting 3 blue light therapy sessions. Normal?
Why Do I Have These Vertical Wrinkles Under Chin After Neck Lift?

3 weeks post-op
Three weeks post surgery is still very early for you to judge the results of your surgery - be patient and follow up with your surgeon
Vertical wrinkles after neck lift
The vertical wrinkles suggest that skin laxity still exists after your lift. It doesn't seem likely that blue light will shrink the skin to your liking. Photos would help but a secndary lift might be the solution to further tightening.
