A post-operative care plan will be discussed with you before and after the procedure. Returning to work and your normal activities is an individual matter and your Specialist Plastic Surgeon will advise you. Most patients usually take 2-3 weeks off work.

Sports or strenuous activities should be avoided for at around 3 weeks, and complete healing and recovery may take a few months.← When can I resume normal activities after Perth facelift surgery?
