Neck Lipo Recovery

Conveniently located to serve New Jersey

Neck liposuction recovery is an incredibly crucial part of the process. With proper aftercare, patients can avoid unwanted complications and optimize the quality of their results. At Ganchi Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ganchi makes sure to thoroughly explain every aspect of neck lipo recovery to New Jersey patients.

Immediately Following Neck Liposuction

The patient can go home right after the neck liposuction procedure. The patient must arrange in advance for a friend or family member to drive them home, because it is unsafe for the patient to drive due to the anesthesia used during the procedure.

Patients are instructed to get plenty of rest after their neck lipo procedure. This allows for improved healing.

General Recovery Instructions for Neck Liposuction

The post-operative recovery instructions given to the patient may include some, if not all, of the following:

  • Regularly applying antibiotic ointment to the incisions
  • Wearing the support garment, which will guide the skin during the recovery process
  • Keeping the neck positioned properly for optimal healing

Medications will be prescribed to help deal with post-operative pain and discomfort. Pain after neck lipo is usually mild. Antibiotics will also be prescribed to prevent infections.

Patients must avoid taking aspirin or ibuprofen to avoid increasing the risk of bleeding. Certain foods and beverages should be avoided depending on the instructions given.

Bruising and Swelling

A degree of bruising and swelling will be present after neck liposuction. These issues can last for three to six weeks. However, most patients see a big improvement within days of their procedure!

To minimize the swelling and bruising, apply a cold compress as directed for two to three days following the procedure. It will also help to keep your head and neck elevated at all times, even while sleeping.

Activity Restrictions

Various activities will be prohibited during the course of neck lipo recovery. Patients must not bend forward, strain, or lift anything for at least three weeks. It will be important to avoid side-to-side head movement while the neck tissues are healing.

The patient can resume normal daily activities within a week. Strenuous physical activities may be prohibited for about four weeks, depending on the recovery rate of the patient.

Follow-Up Appointment

A follow-up appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Ganchi. This will allow him to evaluate the progress of the healing process. The doctor will check on the incisions, ensure that no complications have occurred, and clear the patient to resume certain activities based on how well the tissues have healed.


The patient can see visible changes immediately after the neck liposuction procedure. However, swelling and bruising will obscure the full results.

It will take a few weeks before the skin shrinks and tightens in the neck area. The jawline will become more defined within three months, and full results may be apparent after six months or after the neck area has healed completely.

Dr. Ganchi and his team are the best around! The facility is absolutely beautiful. During my consultation appointment, I immediately felt welcome and comfortable. My rhinoplasty surgery was more than successful and recovery was quick and painless! 1 year later and I'm still complimented on his beautiful work!
I just had my rhinoplasty surgery 1 week ago . Dr. Ganchi did an amazing job. Exactly what I was hoping for is what I received. I was unsure about the surgery and the process because I never had any before. The whole staff was great, patient, understanding and took great care of me. Dr. Ganchi has such a soft, gentle touch and takes his time. It shows with the results. Very minimal bruising first day and after that gone. Day by day, results are getting better and better. If you are feeling hesitant or have concerns let me ease your mind and tell you, they were great and you are in great hands.
Recently I had reconstructive nose surgery. The process was simple. So far I am 10 days into the recovery phase. It has not been scary or dreadful. Swelling around the eyes reduced after a few days! All that is left is keeping my nose protected! If you follow the instructions that Dr. Ganchi and his team lay out for you then it is smooth sailing!

The best of the best. Dr. G and his whole staff are amazing. Honestly, you get what you pay for. He is so knowledgeable, comforting and surprisingly funny. Layla and Karen are also little angels.

Greetings all! I recently had labiaplasty done with Dr.Ganchi. I found Dr.Ganchi’s practice long before life gave me time to proceed with this procedure. Therefore I was very happy through each step of the way. After a wonderful consultation in which Dr.Ganchi thoroughly explained what I should expect as far as having the procedure done and the healing process etc. I too am thorough and was left without a question to ask. The front desk staff is fabulous. They were informative which made me feel comfortable and at ease. I even purchased a facial and they were sweet and helpful. The surgery room was airy and I loved my view. I was totally comfortable during the entire procedure. I went right in and in no time I was home. The healing process was just as I was told it would be so felt just fine all throughout. I went back to work on the seventh day after the procedure. I am proud of myself for achieving this and you should too. It’s a life changer in many ways, from clothes feeling comfortable to wiping differently after peeing. I will certainly continue seeing Dr.Ganchi for other procedures, he is really the best! Thank you Dr.Ganchi!!

Best decision I've ever made. Period. For most, plastic surgery decisions are life changing. Not only physically, but mentally as well. Going under the knife voluntarily is a wild experience because YOU choose the surgeon, and with the surgeon, their team. Let me just say real quick...Dr G., Laila, Karen, and Marcela are NJ's DREAM TEAM. I had a breast augmentation performed at the end of June 2021, and WOW. Worth. Every.Penny. It hasn't even been a month of recovery and my results are amazing. I feel so sexy, so confident, and so complete. Brings me tears knowing something I've wanted for ten years, is here, and I've been given exactly what I dreamt of. Dr.G is the REAL DEAL. They make me feel like family when I'm there and can't wait to continue seeing them... from my breasts to my routine botox.. there's nothing he can't do.

Dr Ganchi is a wonderful, caring doctor and a true artist. He put me back together again after four kids that did a number on my abdominals and I am so grateful to have found him. My results are unbelievable. His staff is also top notch and hold your hand through every step of the process. I would recommend him without hesitation.

I am in LOVE with the results of my breast augmentation! Dr. Ganchi and his staff exceeded my expectations and made me feel very comfortable throughout this entire process. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about him and his staff and they are all 100% accurate. Dr. Ganchi truly transformed my body and my confidence and I will forever be grateful! I have already referred him to a couple of my friends, and highly encourage others to do the same!

Dr. Ganchi and his staff are the best of the best. They all made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Ganchi is so gentle, which made my recovery process painless and easy. I was worried about the recovery process for a rhinoplasty, but I would do it all over again if I had to. It was so much easier than I thought it was going to be all thanks to Dr. Ganchi. I will definitely be recommending Dr. Ganchi to everyone I know!!!
