Tips to Reduce Swelling After Facelift Surgery

1. Keep your head elevated
Patients should raise their heads as they rest so any unnecessary pressure and excess blood can flow away from the area.
2. Use cool compresses
People often use cool compresses to heal soft tissue injuries. This practice can also help patients who undergo facelift surgery. The cool sensation constricts the blood vessels and makes you feel more comfortable. Remember to give your skin a break from the cold every once in a while, and don't apply ice directly to the healing skin.
3. Avoid heat sources
While cold can suppress swelling, heat can make it more prominent. This is why our facial plastic surgeon suggests staying away from heat sources during facelift recovery. Avoid spending time outdoors, using heat lamps, and taking hot showers in recovery. Stay inside by your air conditioner and try not to overheat yourself.
4. Stay hydrated and eat right
Hydration is an essential part of staying healthy while healing from facelift surgery. Maintaining proper hydration and nutrition allow your body to heal and reduce swelling. It’s also a smart idea to avoid excess salt intake since this could increase inflammation
