How does full face lift recovery?
The recovery takes one to two weeks. Poor healing of the skin is most likely to affect smokers. Most of the incision is concealed and not noticeable. It is most likely to be heavy behind the ear where there is greater tension. Most people are happy with the result and back to work within a week or two.

• It is most important to give up smoking. This can have a serious effect on the blood supply to the skin and cause areas of skin on the face to become black and scarred following surgery.
• Hair should be washed thoroughly the day before face lift surgery to minimize the risk of infection. Additionally, alcohol should be avoided the night prior to the procedure. Patients should also make sure to get a good night’s sleep, since it is important to be well rested during face lift surgery. Some cosmetic surgeons may give patients additional instructions.
