Will I feel comfortable attending major events after neck lift surgery?
You may at first feel self-conscious about the appearance of your neck after the neck lift procedure. This is because there will be post-operative swelling and bruising, and the area may look red. The extent of swelling and bruising and how long this lasts for is very variable.
For some people, bruising will fade quickly, whilst in others, it can persist for longer. However generally, swelling and bruising should start to resolve after the first week. You will, therefore, most likely feel completely comfortable being seen in public by four weeks, by which time all the swelling and bruising should have fully resolved.
