According to several studies, the incidence of an infection after facial surgery is approximately 0.6%. Infections are the second most common complication after a hematoma or post-operative bleeding. The most common infection is staphylococcus or MRSA found in about 80 percent of facelift and necklift infections. Methods to reduce facial infections include using preoperative scrub with chlorhexidine, nasal Bactroban, and preoperative intravenous antibiotics (vancomycin useful for patients with history of MRSA or at high risk).
