One of the best things about the facelift procedure is that the recovery period is not long or painful. Following your post-operative instructions will ensure that your recovery goes as smoothly as possible.

The sutures used to close the incisions will need to remain for around one week. Most people are able to shower around two days after their procedure. After about two weeks, you can return to work. During this time, it is important that you keep an eye out for any potential complications. If you see anything that is concerning, contact your surgeon to schedule a follow-up visit.
