Are Scars Visible After Facelift Surgery?

You will have nearly imperceptible scars after facelift surgery, as Dr. Pero hides all incisions inside the hair, behind the tragus (post-tragal), and in facial creases. He uses a technique that places the pull and tension on the deep tissues rather than on the skin itself, which yields a better result.


When Can you Return to Work after Facelift Surgery?

Patients may return to work and daily activities within 2 weeks after surgery.


What is the Recovery Time for Facelift Surgery?

Up to 70 percent of facial swelling subsides within 3 weeks after surgery. The remaining swelling may take up to 3 months to resolve.

Patients should refrain from any strenuous activity up to 3 weeks after surgery.


How Long Do Results Last?

Initially, you may not see the full results of the surgery until several months later. Once you are completely healed, however, you can expect the results to last up to 10 years.
