#3: When Can I Start Exercising?
In most cases, Dr. Karolak will suggest holding off on exercises that promote additional blood flow to the treatment area for at least 2-weeks. After that, you can slowly start to incorporate your regular routine into your day-to-day life as you feel comfortable. But remember, pushing yourself too hard too soon can prolong the healing process and potentially increase scarring.
#4: How Long is Full Recovery?
Full recovery from neck lift procedures is around 4-6 weeks. However, some patients may experience residual tightness for several months following their surgery. Scars will gradually fade over the course of six months to a year with the help of a scar management plan provided by Dr. Karolak.
During your in-person consultation, Dr. Karolak will speak with you about your individual concerns and goals before customizing a treatment plan accordingly. Afterward, he’ll provide you with in-depth information about what you can expect before, during, and after surgery.
