Full Recovery from Facelift Procedures
Most of the visible signs of healing will have improved during the first 2-4 weeks, although though total healing may take 6-12 months. For “Red Carpet Events” and weddings, it is important to give yourself plenty of time to recover. Dr. Karolak recommends 3 months. This will be discussed at your consult while taking into account your personal situation and medical history. Incision sites will have a pinkish-red hue, which will gradually fade over the course of 6-12 months. In most cases, this can be easily concealed with a cover-up.
Patients who follow the pre-procedure instructions and the recommended post-procedure care instructions tend to experience the easiest recoveries and best outcomes. Open communication between you and Dr. Karolak is extremely important. All surgical patients will be given Dr. Karolak’s personal cell phone number to ensure a direct line of communication. If you have any questions or concerns during your recovery period, or simply need reassurance, Dr. Karolak is available to you. He insists on being directly involved in your aftercare in order to provide you with the easiest recovery and best results possible.
