Swelling After a Vampire Facelift


Swelling and bruising following a " vampire facelift"  is usually almost, if not already, gone by 2-3 days after the procedure was performed. The results will start to appear by approximately a month later and it will last for 2-3 months. I would recommend discussing your options with your plastic surgeon to see if there are any possible risks or complications that may arise.

How long can I expect swelling after a vampire facelift?

75% of the swelling following a vampire facelift will be resolved within 3 hours of the procedure, and the remainder will go down within 1-2 days. I hope this helps, and please feel free to ask any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you.

With all cosmetic procedures that are minimally or invasive, you may experience swelling.  However, the swelling will subside quickly (within a few hours to a day or two).  You may also have a little bruising which will also clear quite quickly.

Seek a full consultation with a PRP specialist in your area.  They will assess you for risks and can discuss with you the possible risks associated with the procedure. 

Good luck!
