How is the day of surgery?To begin with, you should know that a facelift lasts between 3 to 5 hours.
In the intervention, the surgeon usually separates the skin from the muscle and fat tissue.
Excess adipose tissue can be repositioned or liposuctioned if it is found in excess, mainly around the neck and chin. This causes an improvement in the contour of the face.
The next step is to tighten the muscle and adapt the skin to the new shape obtained, resecting the excess. The layers of tissue and skin incisions are sutured, and finally a bandage is placed on the patient's face. It is slightly compressive, and may include a thin tube for drainage.
How is the postoperative? Once the treatment is done, the patient receives analgesic medication that helps him not to experience discomfort and/or pain. Occasionally there may be an alteration in the sensitivity of the tissues, although there is a recovery within a few weeks. Sometimes there may be edema, that is, a swelling of the tissues. This is normal in the first 10-15 days.

As for the bandages, they are removed the next day after surgery. Most of the sutures are removed between 7 to 10 days. Some leave a few extra days.
How is the follow-up after surgery? You will have an exhaustive follow-up during the first week, coming every 2-3 days . And then further away from the second. You will have a 24- hour phone for any questions about it.
When do I resume my normal activities?The week after the operation, it is advisable to lead a quiet life.

The large percentage of patients who go through a face lift they return to their work between 10 days and 2 weeks after the intervention. After 21-30 days you will be able to exercise again.
