Congratulations on completing your facelift surgery! We have some recovery to do so let’s discuss that. Many think the hardest part of surgery is the surgery itself. Recovery is usually the hardest part and comes with some obstacles and social downtime before you reach your end result.
Following surgery, it is best to review your post-care instructions to ensure you are taking care of yourself properly to ensure an optimal outcome. Patience is crucial and everyone’s bodies heal differently, so it’s important to understand that and not compare to others. In general, it takes 1-3 weeks to recover from a facelift procedure although there are situations where swelling and bruising can linger for some.
Utah Facial Plastics provides our patients with all the tools to get you through this process along with additional resources to speed up the recovery process so you can move on with life and enjoy every bit of reward from having your procedure.
SkinMedica Pre and Post Skin Regimen
Skin care is key to maintain healthy skin. You have been provided with a medical grade skin care regimen by SkinMedica to use pre and post operatively. The use of these products will prep your skin to heal quicker as well as maintain the investment you just made. Good skin is an investment, and we want to educate our patients on the importance of this. We hope you will continue the path of using a good regimen for years to come. One added perk is that you will receive 620 reward points which is $62 in your Alle wallet to use towards Allergan purchases such as Botox, Juvederm, and Skin Medica purchases. Each time you purchase, you earn money for future purchases!
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Individuals who undergo surgery are eager to get back to their normal lives. Some may take longer to heal in general following procedures. Utah Facial Plastics surgeons recommend and suggest hyperbaric oxygen therapy as an option to speed up healing and help improve results. This treatment reduces swelling by flooding the tissues with oxygen and is best done in a series of treatments spaced one day apart for 5 days starting approximately 2 days after surgery. We typically recommend at least a 30 minute treatment but you can go up to 60 minutes with each one.
You can learn more about hyperbaric oxygen therapy at Restore Hyper Wellness with several locations in Northern, Utah. They offer a package of 5 for $250 to UFP patients.
For our Draper patients, South Jordan Chiropractic offers a package of 5 for $250 or a package of 10 for $500 for one hour sessions. You can learn more about their facility and schedule an appointment HERE.
For our Layton patients, Oasis Plus Therapies is also a great option. They offer five 30 min sessions of mild hyperbaric O2 therapy for $175, ten sessions for $280 or 20 sessions for $500. You can learn more about their facility HERE.
Other Surgery Benefits:
Complimentary Elevated Hydrafacial
Don’t forget to schedule your first treatment one month after surgery. Not only will you enjoy this relaxing treatment and all its benefits, your Elevated Hydrafacial also includes lymphatic drainage therapy to reduce facial swelling. It increases lymph flow and assists in releasing toxins and is another benefit from UFP Aesthetics to decrease healing time.
With your Insider membership benefits, you receive a total of 2 Elevated Hydrafacial treatments and can schedule your second procedure anytime within one year post-surgery.
BBL Laser Treatment for Bruising
BBL Light Laser treatment can treat discoloration and bruising in the skin following surgery. This service is available at $50 per area of bruising to speed up the healing process. If you are interested in this treatment, talk with your surgeon at your follow up to determine when this could be right for you. It is usually best to be treated within the first week after surgery.
Cosmetic surgery patients get the added perk of an Insider Membership. For 1 year from the date of your procedure, you have access to exclusive perks and discounts on injectables, treatments, and skin care with UFP Aesthetics. Take a look at the Insider Membership for more details and maximize your benefits with us. This service is a favorite by patients, and many continue with VIP or Elite Memberships once the Insider perk ends. We are here to help you maintain your investment.
Thank you for trusting in UFP for your surgical procedure. We hope you recover quickly and can enjoy the results for years to come. If you need any further assistance, please contact our office at 801-776-2220.
