Cosmetic Procedures: FAQs
How long does it take to recover from a facelift?
After a facelift, a pressure dressing must be worn for 7 days post-op for 24 hours a day. Any sutures that require removal will be removed after 7 days. There can be some bruising. The length of time that bruising lasts depends on the patient. Hair can be worn to cover incisions and scarves or turtlenecks can be worn to cover any residual bruising, so generally speaking, most people get back to work etc after about 7-14 days for a full facelift (lower face and neck).
How long do facial fillers last?
It depends on the filler. Some last approximately 6-9 months, others 9-12 months and some can last up to 2 years. The metabolism of the recipient also affects the length of time that a filler can last.
How long does Botox last?
In most patients, BOTOX lasts approximately 3-4 months.
How long do the results last with facial cosmetic surgery?
When cosmetic surgery is performed, it can turn back the aging clock, but unfortunately it cannot stop it completely. The amount of time results last will vary from patient to patient, but are better if the patient takes care of their skin and stays out of the sun (to slow the aging process). Some patients have great elasticity to their skin and may have longer lasting results than a patient who has less elasticity in their skin. Hopefully, most surgical cosmetic procedures will last for about 10 years, some more, some less.
How long does it take to see results after PRP hair restoration?
Typically, some thickening of the hair will be noticeable after about 3 months. A second treatment may be recommended after 6 months, especially for men.
