It Depends: I advise my facelift patients to be prepared for the swelling and bruising that can be present for up to 4 weeks. Residual swelling may take a few months to heal completely. If ever you are concerned about continued swelling, it is best to reach out to the surgeon who performed the procedure to get advice specific to your case. Best wishes from CosmeticSurg.net.
