Question : What will my neck look like after a neck lift? Would it be possible to cover any side effects like bruising by wearing a turtleneck?
Answer : After the surgery, there is some bruising and swelling in the neck. Usually this is not too bad and patients can go out after a few days with minimal neck covering. However, if you have extensive bruising, you may need to cover the neck for a short period of time. The initial necklift appearance usually displays minimal swelling.
