Facelift Complications & Recovery

Complications & Recovery

Immediately after surgery, the face is fitted with bandages in order to decrease the recovery time and to reduce swelling. Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing and recovery process. Any stitches are easily removed after a week or so. 

Some complications after a facelift include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tightness
  • Sensation changes
  • Discomfort
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Skin loss
  • Muscle weakness

Patients sometimes report some minor pain associated with surgery. Any discomfort can be treated effectively with oral medication prescribed by Dr. Sacks. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the directions given after the procedure.
