How Long Is The Recovery From An Ultrasound Facelift
You: You are able to return to your normal activities right away, there is no downtime associated with it. I say that 19 of 20 patients can go back to work the next day but there is some swelling. Results will be seen over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Are there any new treatments on the horizon that will be less invasive than full facelift with shorter recovery. Need jowels lifted. 58 yrs. Old.
Not as effective: There are many emerging minimally invasive treatments that achieve skin tightening but they simply are not as effective or permanent as full face lifting. For example, whereas a facelift may achieve an 80-90% improvement, these other techniques may accomplish a 20% tightening effect. However shorter scar face lifts can achieve excellent control of the jowl region. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Been trying to get up courage to have a facelift for 4 years concerned about recovery process and downtime. Any suggestions how to get past that?
Md writes that ultherapy treats the same foundation layer that facelift surgery does without the risk, recovery & downtime. True? New gold standard?
I'm sorry, not true!: I am not sure who wrote that but I am sure it is someone who owns and is paying the lease on an ultherapy machine. This is not a substitute for a facelift, most current facelift techniques treat the deeper layers of thef face called the smas. Ultherapy is unlikely to truly tighten the smas. It may supplement the results but is far different in results from a facelift. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers

Facelift = Mild Pain: Most of my patients report mild to moderate discomfort, and only in the first couple of days. Most are able to take tylenol (acetaminophen) by that time. Severe pain would be highly unusual and should prompt a visit to your surgeon for an exam. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 14 more doctor answers
About 1 Week: Most will notice a 2-3 day period of swelling and possible bruising. This is usually gone to the point where most observers would not see the "obvious" signs of having had surgery. Pain is mild and usually patients can take plain tylenol (acetaminophen) by the 2nd or 3rd day. Many md's will recommend that you wear a "wrap" garment for several days after the procedure. Most of my patients are back to work at 1 wk. ...Read moreSee 18 more doctor answers
Recovery after facel: Recovery is very individual. I recommend setting yourself up for success. Stop any aspirin, advil, (ibuprofen) fish oil, etc for two weeks prior to the procedure. Watch your salt 3 days before and after. Iced compresses for 48 hours after and then lymphatic drainage treatments to help mobilize swelling. Depending on the combination of procedures 1-2 weeks generally. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers

How long is it recommended to stop smoking before a facelift, and how long does nicotine stay in blood system?
As soon as possible: You should stop smoking for at least 2 weeks before and continue at least 2 weeks after the procedure. Although nicotine only lasts 24 hrs in your system, the detrimental effects may last much longer. Smoking increases risks of complications and prolongs the healing process. Abstaining is one thing that you control that can optimize your results and ensure a safer procedure. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers

They should!: Most experienced facelift surgeons aim to deliver natural results. During healing things may look distorted, but with time things relax and swelling resolves. The people you see who do not look natural have usually done too many facelift (3 or more depending on the patient).
