What Is the Recovery from a Facelift Like?
You’ll have your surgery in our AAAASF-certified facility in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul area. Omni Cosmetic is committed to the highest standards of safety and care, and we will do everything we can to ensure your comfort throughout your treatment.
After your St. Paul facelift, plan for about two weeks away from your normal activities. Bruising and swelling are the most common effects of surgery and usually subside by the end of your recovery period.
To help you heal as quickly as possible, our doctors may use the Medtronic® PlasmaBlade™, a cutting-edge surgical device designed to provide greater precision and reduce bruising and bleeding. We see a majorly improved postoperative recovery for patients who benefit from this technology. As part of our comprehensive postoperative facelift care kit, you will receive a complimentary hydrafacial, lymphatic massage, silicone sheets, and scar cream to optimize results and aid in recovery. Omni Cosmetic can also recommend a postoperative care regimen that includes facial massage, medicated facial products, and medical-grade concealer.
You’ll return to our office for several follow-up visits so that we can make sure you’re healing comfortably and so we can answer any questions you may have. Expect to see your final results three months after surgery, which is when most patients have their postoperative photos taken.
Additional Optional Procedures
Younger, healthier-looking skin is an important aspect of facial rejuvenation. Our patients commonly receive non-surgical laser treatments following a facelift. Omni Cosmetic utilizes HALO™ from SCITON® to help correct tone, texture, and color concerns for maximized aesthetic improvement
