Healing after a facelift operation is vital for the success of the procedure. Showing off that beautiful new face and jawline will be gratifying, but first comes the facelift recovery process.
Do not drink alcohol for two weeks after the procedure, since it causes an increased risk of bleeding during facelift recovery. Avoiding NSAIDs (Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) like Advil and Aspirin will also help to prevent bleeding. NSAIDs are anti-coagulants that thin the blood. Speak with your doctor about alternate options for these medications.
