Many patients ask us this question to help themselves decide the time of year they would like to get a facelift. That’s because you may feel more restricted from doing summer activities after your surgery. However, we will review your full instructions for post-care during your initial consultation, as our number one goal is to help you heal quickly and minimize your downtime.
In general, you can expect to be able to swim within three weeks after your surgery, or after your wounds are completely healed. You can shower and wash your hair 24 hours after surgery. You can start walking immediately.
You can begin cardio and/or lifting in two weeks.
