A facelift is a popular procedure designed to reverse the aging process around the face and neck. Healing from a facelift can vary based on the procedural details and other factors. This blog is intended to provide patients with some tips to keep in mind when going through a facelift recovery.

Expect some pain and swelling in the days that follow surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Park will prescribe pain medication to you.

When taking prescription medications, be sure to keep your meals light. Staying hydrated is more important than eating during the first 24 hours, especially if the medications are making you nauseated. Having to deal with cleaning up during your facelift recovery is preventable.
