Had my facelift just about 48 hours ago, my initial reaction is how comfortable of a recovery it has been. I haven't needed to take anything other than tylenol for pain. Although I am swollen and bruised I am beginning to see the results and I am extremely happy. This is just a part of several surgeries I have planned due to massive weight loss. The overall experience so far has been great and I am so pleased with my decision to complete this journey
Nice Recovery !!
So far so good, today is day 5 post surgery I'm still very comfortable and I don't even need tylenol at this point. There was a little more swelling on day 4 as opposed to day 3 , but waking up today I can see things a really settling down. The bruising is really going away and the swelling has gone down somewhat. I'm starting to see the transformation and I'm very happy
Light at the end of the tunnel !!
today is day 6 post surgery from my facelift and I'm starting to see the bruising really subside. The swelling is lessening as well but probably not as fast as I'd like !! I think it's because
I feel so physically well that I would love to resume normal activities, but appearance wise I'm just not there yet. This is absolutely a visual recovery. There has never been any really physical discomfort for me. I'm going to get my stitches removed tomorrow so hopefully I'll start to look a little more pleasing to the eye LOL !!
What a difference a day makes!! Today is exactly 1 week post surgery from my mid facelift , upper and lower eyelid surgery a chin lipo. I am amazed how much the swelling and bruising has subsided !! Dr. Watts removed my stitches around my eyes and under my chin today so being that I was already in New York to do that I thought I'd spend the day shopping I did and throughout the corse of the day the swelling and bruising really began to disappear , don't get me wrong its still there I still look like Rocky but what an improvement. That being said I do believe I will be going back to work on Monday with minimal swelling and bruising, so that 10 to 14 day window your given for recovery after a facelift is spot on. I'm extremely happy with how this entire procedure has gone from start to finish. One surgery down 3 to go !!
Today is day 16 post surgery. My swelling and bruising has really subsided and I am able to fully appreciate the changes in my appearance and I am elated. True, the midface lift is no picnic to visually recover from and I had moments of thinking my face would forever remain swollen and bruised. At this point I am able to say I would do it all again. I am so pleased with the results and I know it will continue to improve over the next few weeks. Bravo Dr. Watts !!!
