I do not mind some lines and wrinkles but I HATE the chicken neck look I have! I am 62 years old and trying to grow old with some grace, but this trully bothers me. How much downtime can I expect from Neck Lift surgery? How long does the procedure last? I appreciate you responding. Thank you.
Downtime and Duration of Neck Lift Surgery?

Nseck Lift Recovery Is 10 Days to Two Weeks Should Last 10 Years
Thank you for your question.
Down time is the time it takes for bruising to resolve. You will be up and around the next day. Bruising can last two weeks.
The duration of the result depends on your skin quality and the quality of your result.
Younger patients with healthy thick skin and a good result can expect a 10 year result.
Patients with thin sun damaged fair skin can need revision as early as two years.
If your neck is tight at 3-6 weeks after surgery you should expect a long lasting result.

Improvement lasts forever and you will always look better than if you never had surgery while the hands of time tick on, your clock will always be set back a number of years.
Neck Lift Recovery
Neck lift recovery varies from patient to patient and depends on a large number of variables. These include the wound healing characteristics of the patient and the type of procedure performed.
Most patients feel pretty good in about four to five days, but their primary concerns are when they will look good enough to go out in public. Recovery following neck lift surgery may last for months, but most patients feel they can go out in public in about two weeks. At this point, most of the bruising and swelling have resolved.
It’s important to emphasize that recovery periods are variable and depend not only on the patients would healing characteristics and the surgical technique utilized, but also on the patients tolerance for changes that may occur following neck lift surgery.
It’s also important to realize that neck lifts turn the clock back, but don’t stop the clock form ticking. Most surgeons will tell you that the procedure will generally last about ten years.
Necklift Recovery and Duration
The Neck Lift involves minimal post-operative discomfort and downtime. Pain medication is prescribed, but it is unlikely it will be needed for more than a day or two following your procedure. Most patients return to work or social activities ten to fourteen days after surgery. Strenuous physical exercise should be avoided for four to six weeks following a neck lift as it can trigger swelling. You will continue to age, however a necklift is long lasting and should last approximately 10 years. Best of luck! Dr. Clevens

Neck Lift Surgery?
Thank you for the question.
Based on your description face/neck lifing is indicated. Nonsurgical options tend to be ineffective; be very careful because you will be offered these non-surgical treatments that will likely leave you disappointed.
You can expect one to two weeks of “downtime”; procedure time about three hours.
Corset neck lift
I have done many neck lifts in the past several years and only since I have performed the corset platysmaplasty have I had consistent, durable result that my patients love. Furthermore, when I place reston foam on the neck after surgery, the bruising is minimized and most patients can return to work in 7-10 days.
