How long would I have to be off work if I decide to go for facelift?

Stuart A. Linder, MD

The time off work depends on the type of facelift you have performed. For less invasive mini-lifts 5-7 days is standard. For more extensive facelifts (SMAS, mid-face lifts, Deep plane, and Subperiosteal lifts) up to three weeks downtime may be required. Consult with your Board-certified Plastic Surgeon.
