What To Expect After A Facelift

Surgery Recovery Time

Continuing with our facelift theme in our vlog series, our next video discusses what to expect after a facelift surgery and how long does it take to heal. As mentioned in the video, the recovery period for patients who have facelift surgery can be variable and the amount of swelling and bruising that the patient gains can be dependent on their individual circumstances. However, generally patients tend to feel tightness in and around the neck area for around the first 24-48 hours after the procedure and this is common of what to expect after a facelift surgery.

The video provides an example of a patient who went through facelift surgery and it shows a timeline of their facelift surgery recovery period, up to a 10 year period, where there are noticeable changes in the patients’ face after initially witnessing visible bruising and swelling. The different photos that are shown of the recovery period provides a guide on what to expect after facelift surgery and how they can affect the face visually over time. Factors that can determine how a patient recovers from facelift surgery is dependent on their personal ageing process but also changes in weight which can disrupt the overall recovery process.
