What age do most people get facelifts?

On average, it is common for people to have facelifts in their 50s.  But you will see facelifts in those younger and older too.  It seems that most people get facelifts between the ages of 45 and 65.  However, a 45 year old will most likely get a different type of facelift than a 65 year old because the skin is at different stages of aging.  

When will my bruises go away after a facelift?

Everyone heals differently.  But usually it takes about 10-14 days for the bruising to disappear.  

When does the swelling reside?

A lot of swelling goes away after two weeks, but it still takes anywhere from 6 months to a year for all the swelling to dissipate.  Please keep in mind everyone is different and procedures vary too. 

How long will my face be numb after a facelift?

Typically, it takes about three months to not feel numbness.  Around 90 days is when normal sensations return to the face. 

But it also depends on the type of facelift.  Some procedures may take a lot longer. 

How long does a facelift last? 

Depends on the type of facelift.  A thread lift will only last a year and sometimes even less.  And a mini lift may last 2-5 years.  The longest lasting lift is a full face lift which lasts for about a decade.
