I am 68-years-old and I am seeking a facelift procedure, but I live alone and my family lives at least an hour away from me. Is it possible to drive myself home after the facelift surgery?
You need to have help for the first 24-48 hours after this procedure. For patients in your situation we generally offer two options. You can be discharged home with a driver and nurse or aid who will stay with you until you are able to care for yourself. You can be transferred to a recovery facility which is like a hotel/spa where you will be cared for and pampered as well if you wish (massage, manicure etc.)
