Women and men considering facelift in Chicago often are concerned with how long it will take for recovery. Although the healing period varies, depending on the surgeon that you choose, I have developed a way to perform a complete operation with minimized incisions. This method reduces the recovery time.
My specialized technique for facelift surgery uses a technique known as the “deep plane approach,” which enables me to create a natural and youthful looking appearance without stretching the skin. When performing facelift surgery, I create a series of small and inconspicuous incisions that I hide in the hairline. One of the benefits of using small incisions is the minimized recovery time. I personalize each procedure to match the patient’s cosmetic concerns and goals.
After surgery is complete, my patients usually return to work and their everyday activities within 10 to 14 days. Depending on the extent of the surgery, swelling usually subsides within 3 to 6 months. After surgery, my staff and I recommend following certain measures to protect your rejuvenated face, such as wearing sunscreen. Most people can expect to enjoy the results for 10 to 15 years.
