Recovery Time for Facelift Surgery in Charlotte, NC
Your face and neck visibly show the signs of aging more than any other part of your body. A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that eliminates the lines, wrinkles, and droopiness that make you look older. Depending on the extent of the surgery, the process can take from two to four hours.
Facelift Recovery Time
Bandages used to be worn around the face but new technology has significantly improved the healing process of facelift procedures. The Refine Institute now utilizes Aqua-Cool technology to provides consistent cooling to the face, neck, & eyes eliminating the needs for bandages and compress. This technology has also significantly reduced the recovery period of facelift procedures from 2-3 week to 7-10 days.
You will continue to have regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Pratt to monitor your progress. If you notice any redness, tenderness, or other signs of infection, contact our office immediately to schedule a follow-up appointment.
There’s nothing like looking younger to make you feel younger. The results of a facelift last for years and have a substantial impact on the way patients look and feel about themselves.
