Patients who are interested in a Facelift , should meet with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Mofid, to discuss options, concerns, and which type of facelift would be best. Dr. Mofid listens to his patients needs and concerns, a puts forth his greatest effort to conceal scars. Each patients recovery time and experience will be different. What patients should expect after surgery is swelling and bruising for roughly a week to a week and a half, depending on how easy the patient bruises. As time passes the swelling will start to disperse more and more and your scars will start to fade. Making sure you are protected from the sun will help your scars heal and fade faster. Patients normally have slight discomfort and a tight feeling around their ears and jawline.
