It is advisable to avoid fatigue in your facial and neck areas after operations. Try to have your head relaxed and don't move your neck too much to allow faster recovery. It takes around a week for the swelling to improve and a few more weeks to fully recover and get back to your normal lifestyle.

After Care

It's always best to consult with your doctor to see what they recommend for after care steps. For my patients undergoing a neck lift I recommend to take it easy and give some time for your face to heal. It may take seven to ten days for the swelling to subside completely. You can walk briskly in two weeks and you may perform aerobic exercises in four to six weeks. You can apply make up on your face in a week to 10 days to camouflage your bruises if you have any.
