You certainly appear to be right on track regarding your recovery and appearance.  It is important to continue to follow your post operatvie instructions as to not comprise your results.  At 6 weeks you be able to resume your physical activity without restrictions.

We also suggest that our patients greatly minimize their sun exposure as the sun will effect the appearance of your insicions.  We do not advise sun exposure on any scar for the first 12 months.  I suggest an SPF of at least 30 or higher to help maintain your results.

I think your million-dollar smile says it all - you look fantastic.  I do agree with the other responses, however.  You may feel ready to run a marathon, but remember to follow your surgeon's post-operative care instructions to ensure you keep the best possible result.  Enjoy!

Thank you for the photos. You look really good.  It sounds like you are going through the normal post operative course. One does have to look for fluid collections after surgery. Ice and elevation will help swelling. Please do contact your surgeon and let him/her know if you have any concerns.

   The early results look good, but you should wait until the swelling goes down and you are healed to make a determination.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Great recovery after a facelift

at 10 days after surgery, it's still early to see the final results but based on your pictures you seem to be recovering very well.  Make sure to follow the post-op instructions that your plastic surgeon has given you as each surgeon performs the surgery slightly differently and their postop instructions although similar might have some small variations to fit their particular technique

10 day post-op facelift and neck lift results

At just 10 days post facelift and neck lift, it appears you are doing quite well.  I hope you are pleased with your early results.  Remember you are still healing - avoid exercise or heavy lifting for a couple more weeks.  Be sure to continue to follow your surgeon's instructions.  Best wishes.
