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.

Rhytidectomy, facelift recovery

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!

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.

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

How Do I Look? 10 Days Post-op Facelift & Neck Lift Results

Thank you for your photos very good results.After the face lifting operation the recovery period depends on your physical status, age, general health and condition mainly. The operation itself does not take too long therefore you receive a mild anesthesia. Since the anesthesia that you receive is mild; you will not have problems associated with anesthetic agents after the operation. This is especially important and can be achieved with only a team of plastic surgeons like we have. After the operation you will have stiches and bandages which will be removed after the 10th day. You can start to do your daily activities just after the operations but we do not advise you heavy lifting, running or activities that require excess physical activity. The more you rest, the faster your recovery will be.

10 days Post Face & Necklift

Thank you for sharing your photos, and your great outcome!  Please do take care, and follow your surgeon's aftercare advice.  Healing can take up to 6 months, so it is important to take it easy, and don't be tempted to resume vigorous activities too soon.  Swimming should certainly be avoided, until your incision sites have closed completely, usually at 4 weeks, but do check with your surgeon.  Best of Luck!

10 days post deep plane facelift

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.
