Hoo, boy, look at that neck line after surgery. Don't expect a result
like this from a face lift operation. It's a rare face that responds so
nicely in the area underneath the chin.
She was a good candidate for surgery, because she had good bone structure,
mild jowling, and that sag that you see in her neck.

My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Drains after facelift
This is a question that cosmetic surgeons discuss regularly and you will find many different opinions. Most feel drains do help minimize seromas (fluid collections under the skin) and improve the recovery process. Some surgeons use fibrin sealants which also work well. Others just depend on dressings and pressure. In general, however, if your surgeon is experienced with facelifts and getting excellent results, then whether or not they use drains should not be an issue.
Best of luck with your procedure-
