The Lower Face and Neck-lift can significantly rejuvenate the appearance of the face. Total healing time for the lower face and neck lift, or any surgery for that matter, takes one year to 18 months to completely heal or settle.
When we perform the lower face and neck lift, we try to spend significant time on the incision placement and closure around the ear and tragus to create an “undone” appearance. Keeping the normal anatomy of the earlobe, tragus, and pinna can help produce optimal results.
