Patient Stories

I went to Dr. Teotia for a consult 3 weeks ago after being referred to her by my Medical Spa. The consult was extremely informative as I asked about a neck lift. Dr. Teotia explained the entire process and how she is able to perform this in-office without anesthesia. I immediately booked the procedure and had it done two weeks later. The procedure was comfortable and she was very personable during the entire experience. The result is amazing and after one week I am back to my normal life and love the fresh natural look. Her staff and nurse were all so helpful in this process. They answered many questions and never made me feel uncomfortable asking. I would highly recommend Dr. Teota for the in-office neck lift. It’s exactly as she explained with better than expected results.

Neck Lift & Neck Liposuction Recovery

Overall, recovery from a neck lift or liposuction generally takes about a week. After surgery, most patients wear a compression dressing for one week. Going forward, you’ll also need to follow Dr. Teotia’s instructions for cleaning and care of your incisions.

As the anesthesia from surgery wears off, your neck will begin to feel sore and have some tightness. It’s also not uncommon to feel numbness near the ears due to the disruption of nerve connections.

By the end of the first week, your stitches will be removed in clinic. Over the next two weeks following surgery, your soreness and tightness will slowly alleviate. During this time, you’ll need to avoid heavy lifting, intense workouts, or bending over. You’ll want to arrange for help with tasks around the house and with childcare ahead of time, if necessary.

Patients after neck surgery usually experience bruising and swelling for just over a week. Therefore, even patients who are pain-free after the first week should plan on reduced activity for two.
