I had a lower facelift/neck lift 8 weeks ago. Is it safe to get my sideburns/jawline, upper lip, and chin/neck area waxed?

Timing of waxing after face/neck lift
Waxing, 8 weeks post-op
Timing for facial procedures after a Facelift
- Make-up - typically, cover-up makeup can be applied gently by day #10 (ask your doctor).
- Ear rings - thats right - no ear rings for three weeks (heavy ones may even be longer).
- Color your hair - I advise my patients that they can color their hair when the incision behind their ears is fully healed. See your doctor to confirm that healing is complete.
- Facial waxing - waxing of areas not directly involved in the surgery can be performed 3 weeks after the surgery, but sideburns and cheek areas should wait until week #8.

If a laser treatment or chemical peel was also performed at the same time the timeline to have waxing or laser hair removal may be longer.
