Returning to Work After a Facelift

While every patient is different, most individuals can expect to return to work about one week after their facelift procedure. The exception to this rule is if you work in a more manual job, as your physical activity will be limited in the first few weeks of recovery. For this reason, some patients may not be able to return to work for two weeks.

Your board certified plastic surgeon will give you the green light for when it’s time to go back to work.

How to Have a Smooth Facelift Recovery

Whether you’re close to booking your facelift consultation or you’re still mulling it over, it’s important to know what steps can be taken to have a smooth and successful facelift recovery.

Take a look at our recommendations, keeping in mind that you should always follow the recovery plan established by your board certified plastic surgeon:

  1. Minimize any sort of activity during your first week of recovery. You may spend a lot of time sleeping or convalescing, so it’s important to arrange for in-home care or childcare if needed.
  2. Meal prep before your surgery so you don’t have to worry about making meals for the first few days after the procedure.
  3. Resist doing strenuous physical activity during the first month of your facelift recovery. Light walks may be encouraged after week two, but even if you’re feeling great, take it easy until you get sign-off from your plastic surgeon.
  4. Go to all follow-up appointments that you have scheduled with your plastic surgeon. These appointments are vital for ensuring that you’re healing properly, including checking incisions and any medications.

Dr. Ahn was pretty awesome. He was really nice and super patient with all my silly questions and comments during the procedure. Highly recommend!!!
