Over time, the muscles of the face droop and the skin begins to sag unappealingly. To correct this, many people receive facelifts. This popular surgery is able to remove sagging skin, tighten muscles, and more. You may be asking yourself, “What will I need to do during the facelift recovery process?” Read on to find out.

For one week following the facelift procedure, you should try not to turn your head or move your neck very often. Also, stay away from participating in physically stressful activities such as heavy exercise for at least a month. This is one of the best ways to avoid any bleeding during the facelift recovery process. Finally, do not visit saunas or steam rooms, as this can make you flush and cause a bleeding risk.

When the swelling of the tissues has gone down, you’ll be able to perform these activities as you normally would. The only difference will be your new, youthful face!
