6 Ways to Ensure The Most Successful Facelift Recovery

Are you looking for a way to rejuvenate your appearance and eliminate unwanted wrinkles? A customized facelift can help you achieve dramatic and long-lasting results. Here’s what to expect from the treatment and how to know if it’s a safe surgery for you.  

Aging is inevitable, and with it comes wrinkles and the loss of youthful facial contours. If you are concerned about unwanted facial lines and changes, then a customized facelift can help tighten and smoothen your skin, eliminating all visible signs of aging in your face and neck.

This procedure will:

  • Remove and tighten sagging skin
  • Reduce the droop of the cheeks around your jawline
  • Lift the corners of your mouth
  • Reduce creases between your cheeks and lips

What to Expect During Your Facelift Recovery

One of the most important aspects of any cosmetic surgery is the recovery period. Knowing what to expect after your treatment and following all of your plastic surgeon’s after care instructions is critical to ensuring you get the safest and most satisfactory results.

Immediately following your facelift, you may experience:

  • Itchy skin
  • Tenderness or tightness in the treatment area
  • Facial swelling
  • Some intermittent, shooting pain


What are the possible complications of a facelift?

When carried out by a board-certified plastic surgeon, a facelift is an extremely safe way to rejuvenate your appearance. However, all cosmetic surgeries come with some risks, and the potential complications of a facelift include:

  • Excessive bleeding and bruising
  • Anesthesia complications
  • Damage to facial nerves (usually temporary)
  • Infection
  • Loss of hair around the incision sites
  • Facial numbness
  • Widening or thickening of scars
  • Skin necrosis

If you notice any inflammation, pain, redness, or swelling that is concerning in the days following your procedure, you should ALWAYS seek medical help. If you have a fever, this could be a sign of infection.


6 Tips To Promote Successful Healing after a Facelift

If you are considering a facelift, then it’s important to schedule a consultation with your plastic surgeon beforehand. They will discuss your medical history, aesthetic needs, and health and determine if this is the right procedure for you.

Here are some of the considerations that may be taken into account:


  1. Facelifts are not recommended for patients who have serious medical problems. In addition, you must be in good mental and physical health.

  2. Patients who suffer from diabetes or high blood pressure have a higher risk of developing complications.

  3. Cigarette smoking or tobacco use can also increase your surgical risks and interfere with healing. If you are considering a facelift, you should also consider quitting smoking or using nicotine products.

  4. Good skin elasticity and bone structure will often produce the best results.

  5. Patients should not take blood thinners or aspirin at least a week before surgery.

  6. It’s important that the patient has reasonable expectations of the surgical outcome and that they remember a facelift will not stop the overall aging process.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
