What are the side effects of neck lift surgery?

ANSWER

You will have swelling and bruising that can last for several days after a neck lift. You may feel tightness or tingling and different sensations, including burning or pulling. You'll also have numbness. These are all normal in the first few weeks following surgery and should not be cause for concern.

As with any surgery, infection is possible. Take your temperature. At the first sign of a fever, or if you have unusual discharge from the surgery site, contact your doctor immediately.
