If you have recently undergone or are considering going in for facelift surgery, there are some things you may need to know about the effects and experiences you could have in the hours and days following. Let’s take a closer look at these below:
Facelift recovery time
One of the most important things to take note of when considering a facelift surgery is the time it will take for you to recover. It could take anything from two to four weeks and you will need to take this time off of work to make sure you can recover appropriately.
The time frame for the results of a facelift
If there’s a specific time frame you’re hoping to work to or want to have your facelift done by, it will be important to consider that the effects will not be evident immediately. What’s more, you will have some visible bruising for at least a fortnight, so avoid scheduling your surgery around any important plans.
In addition, it can take up to six to nine months for the full effects of your surgery to be noticeable. For most people, this won’t be a problem as they appreciate it’s not a process that brings immediate results, but if you’re concerned this is too long, you may want to consider other options.
Activities to avoid during facelift recovery
There are a few things you’ll need to make sure not to do while you are recovering from facelift surgery. In the first few days, you won’t be able to drive. You will also need to avoid showering as it is important not to get your bandages wet. During the first few weeks after surgery, you should also avoid strenuous activity as well as saunas or massages to give yourself chance to heal.
