Recovery From A Deep Plane Facelift in Atlanta
By performing a deep plane lift, tension is placed on the deeper tissues of the face and not the skin closure, which helps avoid the fake, too-tight ’pulled back’ look. When done properly, the incisions heal better because of this lack of tension. Recovery definitions and patterns vary by patient, but most patients return to work in 1-2 weeks and are ready for parties or large gatherings around 3-4 weeks.
