Although a traditional facelift can be very effective for rejuvenating the skin of the face and neck, patients sometimes feel that their results appear “stretched” or slightly unnatural. If you’re concerned about this, you may be better suited by a deep plane facelift in Boca Raton & West Palm Beach, making you appear 12 to 15 years younger.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
After your deep plane facelift, your surgeon will give you detailed instructions for the healing process. These instructions may include:
- Sleeping with your head elevated
- Applying a cold compress
- Taking light walks around the house
- Staying hydrated
- Maintaining a healthy diet
Most patients are able to gradually resume their normal routines after approximately one to two weeks. You should be able to resume moderate exercise after around three weeks, but it’s best to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least four to six weeks.
