Overview of Neck Lift Recovery in the Los Angeles Area

It’s vital to know what to expect during neck lift recovery in order to help ensure a smooth recovery. More information about neck lift recovery in Orange County is available when patients get in touch with Dr. Davis B. Nguyen.

Neck Lift Recovery Overview

In essence, a neck lift involves tightening muscles and skin, removing excess skin and fat, and contouring the neck to make everything looks youthful. These changes take time to recover from. Patients can expect to feel mild discomfort during the first few days of neck lift recovery. There will be some bruising and swelling, as well. Fortunately, these issues should disappear over the next two weeks and will be completely gone in a month.

Length of the Neck Lift Recovery Period

It can take between four to six weeks to completely recover from a neck lift, depending on the extent of the procedure. The first week should see the worst of the swelling and bruising start going down. By the end of the second week, patients will only get the occasional feeling of discomfort and some tingling around the affected area. Once the fourth or sixth week has passed, patients can return to work with no worries.

How to Prepare for Neck Lift Recovery

The first week of neck lift recovery will involve a lack of energy on the part of the patient. As such, it’s important to ensure that they will get as much rest as possible during this time. Taking time off from work will help prevent distractions and disturbances.

Patients will need to avoid smoking during the recovery process, since smoking can prolong recovery and lead to complications.

Meals to Heal Faster

The body will require a lot of nutrients while recovering during neck lift recovery. Meat, eggs, yogurt, nuts, and vegetables would be a good start. Preparing a meal plan ahead of time will take the stress of food preparation out of the equation, as well.

As an Anesthesiologist who works closely with Dr. Nguyen, I can tell you that he is an excellent surgeon and collogue. He cares greatly for his patients both inside the operating room and out. He works meticulously and never rushes any procedure. Patient well-being and desired outcome are his top priorities. I can only give my highest recommendation as he is definitely one of the best.

Dr. Nguyen is truly an artist! I see him for injectables (as well as my husband) and get botox and fillers. It looks so natural that when I tell my close friends they're shocked and don't even believe I had anything done. He's very kind, patient and has such a beautiful fancy office and friendly staff. It truly is such a pleasure going to see him and always leave his chair feeling more youthful and confident. Highly recommend him for any surgical or non-surgical procedures!!

I was considering some top Beverly Hills plastic surgeons--and while they were all skilled, I wasn't confident until I met Dr. Nguyen. When I saw how artistic, meticulous and caring he is--he was my only choice. He is the perfect combination of brilliant surgeon, compassionate doctor and artist. Every single detail in his practice is like being in a 5 star hotel. Most importantly, every person who works with him is gracious, warm, and 5 steps ahead of anything you need. Dr. Natalie, Gaby, Van and Jessica are so lovely, gentle, positive and reassuring --they may be actual angels. As for the results, I look 10-20 years younger (depending on the day) and very natural. I am super open about telling my friends and clients what I've done, when they remark on how much better I look. Whenever I find someone or something amazing--it should be shared!! When people find out what I did, and how natural it looks---ALL of them want Dr. Nguyen's number. This is a complete rave review, and if you become one of Dr. Nguyen's lucky clients--you will be writing one too. I recommend Dr. Nguyen and everyone who works for him with unlimited gratitude and enthusiasm.

Our Philosophy

We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one, and the result should appear natural and balanced.

There are several core philosophical principles that drive our practice. We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one. We feel that results should appear natural and balanced so that a patient looks like the best version of his or herself, not a bizarre approximation of someone else. We believe that the best outcomes are achieved when a patient and surgeon share a common objective and when there is consensus regarding aesthetic taste. We encourage a holistic approach to anti-aging because true youthfulness requires a combination of attitude, physical well being, as well as appearance.

While facial plastic surgery is often pursued to restore a youthful appearance, its results are most effective when a patient is vigilant about preserving mind, body, and spirit alike. Last, and perhaps most importantly, we believe that each of our patient’s needs is unique and that their course of treatment should reflect that of uniqueness. We strive to give the utmost in personalized care and service. From your first phone call to our office through your final follow-up visit, you will be given the time and attention needed to help you realize your individual aesthetic goals.
