Is facelift surgery painful and how long is recovery?

IN RIVERSIDE, CA

First, I believe everybody has pain with surgery. The degree of pain is dependent on the person’s sensitivity and personality.
Having said this we go to great lengths intraoperatively to inject the areas with long acting pain medicine so that the postoperative pain is minimized.
The modern facelift entails tighenting the muscles and then the skin is gently re draped without tension.
Thus allowing a defined and crisp neck line without appearing “over done”, stretched and fake look.
Recovery varies upon which type of face lift procedure is performed. In general The first dressing change his in 24 hours, drains were removed in 1 to 2 days sutures begin to be removed and four days with all sutures usually removed at the 10 day. At which time the patient with make up can return to work. For important events I’d recommend at least 4 to 6 weeks to allow all the swelling and bruising to resolve.
There’s nothing like a in person consultation we are much greater detail can be given into the best surgical procedure and your recovery.
