“I love when patients tell me their friends and coworkers ask if they’ve gone on vacation or lost weight—their results are seen as a natural improvement. They look like themselves, just better rested.”

Before and After Gallery

When you come into the office for your appointment, you will be able to see more ‘before and after’ photos of this procedure including different options.

Recovery time

If healing proceeds as expected:

Rest at home (princess treatment) 2 weeks (no housework or exercise). Outsource housework a while you rest. Walk around the house, but do not work out. Rest with your head up and sleep with your neck extended (to avoid creasing) for the first two weeks.

Return to gentle exercise and household chores at two weeks, but no heavy lifting or strenuous activity for six weeks. May cover scars with makeup once scabs are gone. May resume work if it is sedentary. May color hair at three weeks after surgery.

Return to full activity 6 weeks after surgery.

Returning to Work

This depends on the type of work that you do.   Many women can return to sedentary work at three to four weeks, though not everyone is ready to return to work by then. Surgery affects different people differently. If your work is more strenuous, six weeks off work may be needed.

Time until final appearance

3 to 4 months, depending on how swelling resolves

Length of results

Long lasting, but varies from patient to patient.

Smoking and Surgery

If you smoke, it is imperative that you quit six weeks both before and after surgery.  To better understand why, please click this link:

Other Information

if you color your hair, do so right before surgery as you will not be able to color your hair until three weeks following the procedure. Plan to bring a scarf with you to the hospital on the day of the procedure as well as dark glasses to camouflage your temporarily swollen appearance on leaving the hospital.
