Unwanted signs of aging can be a major blow to a person’s self-esteem. A facelift, or rhytidectomy, can help to restore one’s youthful appearance, and the facelift recovery period plays a critical role in the overall process. This aspect of the procedure is very important, because a smooth recovery process relies heavily on the patient’s ability to follow instructions from the board-certified plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Dayton.

Though our staff of trained professionals will provide you with a list of everything you’ll need for the facelift recovery period, there are still some basic things worth mentioning beforehand.

One of the basic tips for an expedient facelift recovery is to minimize swelling in the area whenever possible. Cold compresses can be applied to the surgery site to help flush out fluids. Keeping your face elevated is also incredibly helpful.
