The length of your recovery period will depend on your specific procedure and other health & lifestyle factors. Recovery times can vary significantly from person to person. The general rule, however, is that you should allow 2-4 weeks for initial recovery following your surgery. Scar maturation can take up to a year.
You will need to work with your Surgeon to allow for adequate and proper healing time. It is important to consult with your Surgeon before returning to daily activities such as driving, lifting and exercise.
It is also important to wear the post-operative compression garments throughout your recovery period for the designated time frames. At Cosmetic Surgery for Women and Men, your garments will be provided by your Surgeon.
Good results depend on a collaborative approach and a healthy lifestyle. You will need to be willing to follow the specific instructions given to you by your Surgeon, and attend all post-operative appointments.
Maintaining your results
Please keep in mind that your results from Facelift surgery or Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation may be impacted by fluctuations in your skin health or weight, as well as the effects of gravity and the natural process of ageing as well as climate and environment.
Although a Facelift will help to rejuvenate and refresh your facial appearance, it does not stop the process of ageing.
To maximise the longevity of your Facelift surgery results, it is important to maintain a healthy diet & lifestyle. We also recommend following a regular, high-quality, anti-ageing skincare regime.
