Recovery from face and neck liposuction is generally very straightforward. During the first several days, Dr. Karolak will provide you with post-operative instructions on how you can minimize swelling and bruising. Most patients typically feel comfortable returning to work and other day-to-day activities within 5-10 days.
More strenuous activities can be added to your routine around week 2. However, it’s important not to push yourself too hard too soon. Otherwise, you may risk prolonging recovery. Full recovery from face and neck liposuction can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks depending on your body’s natural healing process.
