Deep Plane Facelift Recovery Guide: What You Can Expect

If you’re considering this type of facelift, you may be wondering what recovery will be like. Immediately after surgery the incision sites will be pretty uncomfortable. You will also have swelling, bruising, and redness on your face and neck.

Over the next few days, expect swelling and bruising to worsen. Applying cold compresses can help to ease these symptoms. Be sure to take any over-the-counter medications to keep you as comfortable as possible.

The first week after a deep plane facelift, you should see a reduction in swelling and bruising. Your doctor may clear you to resume light activity such as walking or running errands. Usually after the first week any remaining sutures can be removed.

The second week after surgery you can return to work and resume any activities that aren’t overly physically demanding. You may still have some swelling or tightness in your face, but at this point you will start to see your results.

A month after surgery you should have little to no discomfort or tightness. This means that your results should be even more apparent. You should be able to resume all activities, including exercise.

Six to 12 months after a deep plane facelift is when you’ll see your full results. Your refreshed, youthful appearance will give you a much needed confidence boost and your look will last for many years to come. Be sure to maintain your youthful appearance by taking care of your skin.
