3. Avoid aspirin and certain supplements.
Again, aspirin and certain supplements can increase your health risks on the operating table. Talk to your doctor or plastic surgeon about your medications (including supplements) to see which ones may increase your risk during your facelift surgery.
4. Prepare your space for recovery.
You’ll likely be groggy and tired during the first few days after facelift surgery, so we recommend preparing your recovery space before you undergo your procedure. Invest in a comfortable resting area, stock up on your favorite entertainment, and make a few meals ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about cooking or getting delivery.
5. Plan for someone to drive you to and from the surgical center.
You won’t be able to drive after your surgery due to the effects of general anesthesia, so it’s important to find someone who will take you to and from the surgical center.
