After almost a year of investigating different cosmetic procedures, I have finally decided that I would like a facelift. I am planning it during my two week vacation from work. I am also not going to tell anyone except my best friend that I am getting it done. Will the bruising be completely gone by two weeks? Should I take another week’s vacation so that no one can tell that I have had a face lift?

For most patients, 2 weeks time is more than enough to look presentable. With advanced techniques and meticulous hemostasis, bruising is not a major problem for facelifts. Patients are very surprised of how non-painful the procedure actually is.
