Patients undergo a combination mini lift or lower facelift and neck lift to address sagging jowls and unflattering neck angles. If you undergo this procedure, you will go home the day of surgery with a light dressing over your face and neck. When you return to the office the following day to see Dr. Ahn, our staff will remove your dressing and wash your hair. Dr. Ahn recommends that you rest at home the following week, and relax with your head elevated.
