Facelift surgery requires a recovery period during which activities need to be minimized. Taking this time is essential for both your safety and pleasing results, and should not be reduced simply to accommodate an exercise routine.

While each patient is unique, it is typically advisable to avoid athletic activities for four to six weeks following facelift surgery. You may require more time for full recovery, making it wise to put off resuming your routine until Los Angeles facelift surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole gives you the go-ahead. Dr. O’Toole will work directly with you in the weeks following your procedure to help you determine when it is safe to resume all normal activities.

If you choose a Lifestyle Lift or a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedure, your recovery time will be reduced. However, these options are not ideally suited for everyone and may not offer the results you most desire. The best way to determine which option is right for you is by working with an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. O’Toole.
