5 of the Fastest Facelift Recovery Tips
1. Follow your surgeon’s post-surgical plan.
Before you even undergo your facelift surgery, your plastic surgeon will develop a post-surgical recovery plan for you. Follow this plan as closely as possible, as it’s customized to help you recover as quickly and healthily as possible.
2. Devote at least one week to uninterrupted R + R.
Take at least one week off from work and rest as much as possible. Don’t push yourself to do anything during this first week, as this is the time period where you’re setting the stage for the rest of your healing.
3. Get help if you need it.
There’s no shame in asking for help if you need it. Whether you live by yourself or need part-time help with your children, hiring a babysitter, nurse, or asking friends or family members to pitch in can help make your facelift recovery a lot easier.
