We recommend that you avoid wearing make-up for at least a week after your facelift procedure. If you decide to wear make-up after this you should not apply it over any incisions and you must make sure it is removed fully overnight as makeup can expose harmful bacteria to your incisions which can extend your healing time. If you are unsure we would recommend contacting you surgeon or their nursing team for advice.
Facelift After Procedure
A facelift is essentially permanent however it will not stop your face from naturally ageing. For patients who take care of their skin, avoid smoking and excessive sun exposure then they should be able to reap the benefits of their facelift for upwards of 10 years. There are many non-surgical procedures that can be used to “touch-up” a facelift in the years following surgery.
