The face is the most identifiable part of a person, and unfortunately is particularly susceptible to the aging process. This is evident in the development of jowls, folds and creases across the face, and banding along the neck that leads to a tired, sad, or worried look.
Face & Neck
What are my options?
What is recovery like?
Surgery takes between 3 – 5 hours, and patients can go home afterwards with a dressing over their face. Typically, we do not use drains. Usually, patients have bruising and swelling around the eyes for 1 – 2 weeks, with swelling in the face for up to 1 month. Pain is minimal and controlled with oral medication. Most patients are ready for social events in 3-4 weeks, and “wedding-ready” by 3 months. Strenuous activities must be limited for 2 weeks, and patients may return to normal exercise and other activities after 14 days.
