How The Recovery Procedure Is Performed?

The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and you will need to get back to your home on the day while you get surgery. If you get facelift, it takes almost 2-6 hours, on the other hand, if you need to get a necklift procedure, it takes only 2-3 hours in completion. You get back to your home by having a bandage around your head and neck. Usually, this bandage is removed on the day next to your surgery. Though, you need to wear an elastic-type garment for at least 14 days after the surgery throughout the evening. Your sutures will be removed after 5 to 7 days of your treatment if they are not dissolvable. The final results require time but an immediate difference in your face is noticeable.
