The Recovery For a Facelift Procedure

  The recovery for a facelift procedure is surprisingly straightforward, particularly if you’ve been picturing intensive recovery for months on end. In truth, you’ll probably need to take off about 2 to 3 weeks before you’ll feel like you’re ready to face the larger world. That’s because it takes about a month for the majority of swelling to dissipate. After the 2 to 3 week mark, you’ll be able to wear makeup to cover any remaining bruises. Keep in mind that the final results of your facelift procedure probably won’t be visible until about 6 months to a year after your surgery. This is because minor swelling is still present for this period, which could alter your facelift results as it fades. Once you do achieve your results, you can expect your facelift appearance to last for 5-10 years. How to Prepare for Facelift Recovery In order to best prepare for a facelift, it’s important to talk to your plastic surgeon to understand what you can expect from the recovery period. You’ll need to take the proper amount of time off from work, and it’s worthwhile getting round-the-clock care (whether it’s in the form of family or professional care) for the first few days after your facelift procedure. At The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Brenman and his staff happily go through all of your questions during your consultation.
