Home General How Long Will the Recovery Period Be After My Facelift?

January 5, 2018

The facelift procedure can dramatically enhance the appearance of your face. The results it can provide can make you look years younger. In order to achieve these results, a lot of work needs to be done on the tissues of the face. Fortunately, you will not need to worry about having to go through a long recovery period.

Most patients will only need around a week to recover from their facelift. After a week, you may still notice a bit of swelling, bruising, numbness, tenderness, and discomfort. It will take about one month for these symptoms to fully dissipate. The results that a facelift can provide should last for about 10 years.

If you want natural-looking and long-lasting results from your facelift procedure, contact Emmett Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Emmett can provide you with the surgical care you need.
