The Facelift Patient-Approved Checklist: 11 Ways to Make Recovery a Breeze
Toronto facelift patients get ready for the big day months ahead of time. Leading up to a transformative facial cosmetic surgery, you may feel a wide range of emotions from excitement to apprehension and from impatience to butterflies. We find the best way for our clients to make facelift recovery a breeze and calm nerves beforehand is to get all their questions answered, then get all their ducks in a row.
Dr. Cory Torgerson
Advanced Facial Rejuvenation Expertise
Dr. Cory Torgerson is renowned across the country for his advanced facial rejuvenation expertise. Whether you’re having a deep plane facelift, mini facelift, or even non-surgical, your instructions for a safe and comfortable recovery will be given comprehensively before you settle in at home. Our patients are also provided with Dr. Torgerson’s personal contact information so they can reach him after hours.
Even with thorough clinical preparation, it helps to have a handy reminder in the form of a checklist to prep yourself for a fantastic recovery. We’ve gathered 11 of our patient favourites to guide you on your revitalizing journey. * Bonus: They involve shopping!
1. Pet care and childcare
Most people prefer privacy while they heal. That means that the regular activity level and needs of young children could be a bit too much. If you have pets that require regular walking and care, or if you have an energetic dog that could jump on you, you’ll need help. Take a break via walking services, or even ask a friend to take your fur babies for a while. You’ll have a much more relaxing face lift recovery if you don’t need to worry about these physically demanding responsibilities.
You can certainly ask someone to go to the drugstore or pharmacy for you after surgery, but worries over running errands or not having the medication you need at the right time can create unnecessary stress. A stress-free recovery is a happy recovery.
5. Expect facial swelling – Help reduce it
Try to remember that these effects are temporary. If you keep your head and shoulders somewhat elevated with plenty of firm support in bed, you’ll reduce swelling quicker. Most people describe the discomfort after surgery as tight, but not particularly painful.
6. Recovery zone
8. Liquids and soft foods
9. Wet wipes
10. Cover incisions and scars
That means wearing sunblock whenever you’re outside and covering up with hats or scarves. You’re investing in a transformative, age-defying procedure that will smooth away years from your look. You’ll have fewer wrinkles and a youthful complexion, so doubling down on sun protection makes good sense, not just for your scars.
Rest assured, the recovery is long, but the eventual results will be worth it. If you have any questions or concerns, let your surgeon know. They care about how you feel as well as how you look. They’ll want to encourage you every step of the way.
