Face Lift: Recovery Time?

How long is recovery after face lift surgery?

No one wants to look as if they have had cosmetic surgery, and no one wants a long recovery period after plastic surgery. Fortunately, modern face lift surgery may get you natural results without the prolonged healing period.

Face lift recovery varies on the specific type of face lift you had and your body’s natural healing ability. Minimally invasive face lifts (mini lifts, short scar, or minimal access) usually have a faster recovery time than traditional facelifts or full face lifts. Generally speaking, most swelling and bruising after facial cosmetic surgery (mini face lift) resolve within a couple weeks. One should plan for at least 2 weeks of recovery. You may have residual slight bruising or swelling for longer, however, may still be able to go into public without drawing attention.
