When you are considering a Face Lift in Melbourne, Florida then you should know what to expect post-operation especially when it comes to tightness in the face. Dr. Ross Clevens tells his patients that most of the tight feeling fades entirely during the first 3-6 weeks after surgery; however, the feeling may be present up to a year after surgery. As the tissues continue to heal post facelift, you may notice that your swelling and tightness peak, but this should quickly subside. It is important to record your progress daily, attend post-operative appointments, ask questions and voice your concerns. Everyone heals at their own unique pace and there will be a gradual improvement in the tightness over a year for it to feel completely normal. 

Crows feet appear around the corners of the eyes, fine forehead lines become deeper creases and folds. The jawline softens into jowls. Folds begin to appear beneath the chin and neck. Facelift is a procedure where a person's face skin is tightened to give a younger looking appearance. Because of aging and gravity the skin on a person's face can tend to sag and feel droopy. It is in this moment when a face lift surgery becomes a great option to look younger. In the facelift surgery, the incisions are regularly placed in areas where they will not be visible so that the patient has a natural appearance.
