After a Facelift
Dr. Morrissette will review all post-operative aftercare instructions with you before you return home. Your progress is monitored after the procedure.
You will be prescribed painkillers and antibiotics to help you have a comfortable and speedy recovery. As most Santa Barbara facelift procedures performed by Dr. Morrissette involve shorter incisions, you can expect the recovery time to be fairly fast. Actual healing time varies based upon the scope of the procedure and individual’s rate of healing, but most patients take one to two weeks off work.
Over the weeks following the procedure, the muscle and tissue will settle into its final position and you can begin to enjoy your rejuvenated, youthful facial appearance. Dr. Morrissette focuses upon producing very natural-looking results for his patients, and has gained a reputation for surgical excellence.
