What is the follow-up care like after a facelift? How many check-ups will I need and for how long?
Every person is different. My usual routine is to see my patients the day after surgery and be certain they are not developing any problems and are comfortable regarding pain and instructions for post op care. I then usually see them at one week for suture removal and then again at three weeks to check that healing is progressing well. After that I ask them to return at 3, 6, and 12 months. Of course all patients are encouraged to contact me and be seen in between if they have any questions or concerns
