Can a bad, consistent cough damage my neck lift?

Post op healing
Thanks for your question. At 9 weeks post op, I think you'll be fine. However, I would definitely suggest that you see your doctor to address the cough. Hope you feel better soon.
Probably ok now
So the soft tissues of the face heal pretty quickly. 9 weeks should be enough to have everything stuck down now unless you have a very heavy cough. I have heard of post op complications as late as three weeks to do with coughing but that the longest time.
Hope that helps.
Coughing 9 weeks after a face lift
Thank you for asking about your face lift.
- After nine weeks, fortunately, things should have healed well enough that you won't damage your result.
- However - persistent coughing is not good for us for lots of other reasons.
- Please be to see your regular doctor if the cough persists or if the cold has turned to bronchitis.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Thank you for your question.
It is highly unlikely that you would have caused damage to your neck area because of coughing 9 weeks after a neck lifting procedure.
I would recommend you see you GP to help treat the cough.

In general, a cough should not give you problems unless you cough so hard that you cause internal bleeding under the skin flaps.
