How painful is a neck lift?
A neck lift is not a painful surgery, the recovery is usually very easy, the patients do feel tightness, though. They feel that the neck is tight and there’s a little bit of pressure. Some patients feel a little bit of numbness and maybe a little bit of shooting discomfort, shooting pain in the ear lobes for a few weeks, but it’s very manageable. Anti-inflammatories and acetaminophen is usually all it takes to improve the discomfort. So I don’t ever see a patient really feeling a lot of pain. But we do have medication if necessary, and that usually is taken the first week or so after surgery.
