After Your Facelift and Neck Lift
You will be likely sleepy immediately after the surgery. This may be followed by a little anxiousness as you become fully awake and find specialized ice packs along your face and eyes. Our nursing staff reassures patients about the dressings to help calm their nerves.
The most difficult time for most patients is the first night after surgery. This is why we require that you stay with us overnight. We will see to your comfort, and you’ll have round-the-clock care, which provides you and your loved ones with peace of mind. After the first night, expect to be a little sore, but not in any extreme or unbearable pain. Any discomfort can usually be managed with pain medication.
Over the next week or so, the bruising or skin discoloration resolves, swelling reduces, and you will start to notice your new facial features. While experiences vary, expect your face to appear rejuvenated and start looking years younger than before your surgery. You should expect your skin to feel a bit tight, but it will soon feel back to normal as the healing process continues. After about a month you should feel well and comfortable enough to resume most social activities. A full return to activity is expected by 6 weeks. In about 3 months, your results will likely reveal a refreshed and natural-looking appearance.
