Your Facelift Recovery
After your facelift, Dr. Few will provide you with thorough instructions to ensure that your recovery process goes smoothly. During the first week or so, it’ll be important to take it easy and get plenty of rest. However, you’ll want to start taking light walks around the house as soon as you feel up to it. For the first few days, you’ll likely experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You can minimize your swelling by periodically applying a cold compress and sleeping in an elevated position.
After approximately one to two weeks, you should be able to gradually resume your normal routine. However, you should avoid moderate exercise for around three weeks and strenuous physical activity for four to six weeks.
How Long Will the Results Last?
Typically, you can see the full results of your facelift procedure after approximately six months, and you can expect those results to last for around 10 to 15 years.
