A facelift can wipe years – even a decade – off your face. Many women swear by this procedure, but as with all things in life, dramatic transformations don’t happen overnight. Tightening and removing excess facial skin will require some downtime.
Most patients can expect about a 10-day to three-week post-facelift recovery. Bandages will be applied to reduce swelling and bruising. Many procedures also involve a drainage tube placed behind the ears that can prevent fluids from collecting under the skin.
