While you’re experiencing the facelift recovery process and getting ready to enjoy the effects of your facelift, you’ll need to take time off from your normal daily schedule. You’re advised to avoid any physically stressful activities. Relax, let the tissues heal from the procedure, and get help from your friends and family.
In around one week after the facelift surgery, you may be able to begin driving again. Showering and experiencing harsh sunlight are also major concerns. Before doing any of these during or after facelift recovery, be certain to check with your plastic surgeon.
While a facelift can be harsh on the facial tissues, its end result is a smoother, more beautiful, younger-looking face without any excess skin or fat.
If this sounds like something that’s right for you, come speak with board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sandy Sule. You’ll learn more about facelifts and the facelift recovery process. Create an appointment by contacting our Dallas office.
