The down time is really small. Only three days wearing the beck brace 24 hours a day. After that it is only at nite for a month. Of course every patient will be different. My sister was so impressed that she just had it done last Monday!
There was no pain on my end. In fact ,I was surprised . I never took pain meds, and was talking to friends on the phone that same nite. I cannot say enough GREAT things about Dr B and this trapeze neck lift!!!!
