Recovery time for a facelift varies depending on what type of lift it is. For example, for a lift where we are lifting the mid face, the lower face and the neck, you should plan on about two to three weeks of swelling and bruising and activity restrictions. After that time, you're usually free to do whatever you want and presentable.
