In brief: If tumescent

anesthesia is used as opposed to a facelift where it isn't used, then the strap needs to be used for about a week.

In brief: Neck Chin Strap

Except when liposuction is done I do not require a chin strap to be used following my lower facelift or necklift surgeries.
Your surgeon will recommend what is best for your particular situation based on their former experience.

In brief: Neck lift

Typically, stitching is removed in about a week, and most bruising fades in two weeks.
Most patients can return to work in one week and resume exercise in about 4-6 weeks, depending on the doctor's recommendations. I recommend wearing the chin strap for about 2 weeks following surgery.
