Average Length of a Facelift Recovery
At Awaken Aesthetics (located in Torrance, CA), our facelift patients can expect to take about one to two weeks off from work. This is when patients experience the majority of facial swelling and bruising, so you can expect the same from your own facelift recovery.
Patients are also required to wear facial coverings for this period of time, as it helps reduce post-surgical swelling.
Usually, by week three, patients can gently cover up any residual bruising with makeup and start to return back to their normal lifestyle.
