I will be getting a neck lift. I am worried about the bruising and swelling afterwards. Will the swelling make it feel like it is difficult to breathe? Will there be any numbness in the area?
Your neck will feel very tight for a while, and you will have bruising. You should talk to you surgeon to she how she/he deals with these issues. The numbness can last a year or even be permanent, but usually is in only small areas. The tops of the ears can stay numb.
