Secrets to a Quicker Recovery from a Facelift
- Posted on: Jul 24 2019
Not smoking weeks before and after this surgery is a priority. It significantly improves blood flow and healing of your hidden incisions.
DO NOT take blood thinners like Advil, Motrin, or aspirin like products and fish oils 2 weeks before and after surgery. This reduces swelling and bruising of the facial tissues.
Our team uses platelet rich plasma PRP during the facelift to also reduce bruising and speed your recovery.
Local/regional anesthesia is performed with IV sleep sedation. No gas general anesthesia . This helps shorten time in the recovery room as an outpatient surgery and reduce nausea and vomiting.
Control of blood pressure before, during and after the facelift reduces swelling and improves healing after surgery.
Diet control of reduced sodium and high protein following surgery also reduces swelling. And improves wound healing after the facelift.
