Infected neck lift scars? -10 days post op. (photos)

Incisions after face and neck lift
thank you for your question. Your incisions look as though they were under heavy tension, and as such will need some extended TLC before they heal completely. Keeping them clean, maintaining your doctors prescribed post operative regimen, and making sure they are involved in the care is of utmost importance. As of now, they do not look as though there is any infection, but without a physical exam and being able to see them in person is tough to make a definitive judgement. That being said, you should absolutely keep your physician up to date with your healing progress as they may need to do some wound care to get you back on the right track. I hope some of this helps.
