Facial trauma repair is surgery to fix an injury to the face or jaw. The surgery may have been done to stop bleeding, repair damaged tissue, or fix broken bones. Your face may be swollen and bruised. It may take 5 to 7 days for the swelling to go down, and 10 to 14 days for the bruising to fade.

Facial Trauma Repair: What to Expect at Home
If you had general anesthesia, your first post-operative visit is the day after surgery, with your next visit days post surgery. You should plan for one to two weeks of private time to recover. We recommend not scheduling any social or professional engagements. Most people return to work in about a week after eyelid surgery. After rhinoplasty or CO2 laser skin resurfacing, plan on returning in about 10 days. If you have a facelift, please give yourself two weeks before returning to work. It is always best to plan for more time away and return earlier if your recovery is going better than expected.
Your facelift recovery explained from Day 1 to Day 30
A facelift , or rhytidectomy, is beneficial for combating the signs of aging in the face and neck. People who have problems with unwanted wrinkles, jowls and sagging skin often opt to have this procedure to help achieve a more youthful, natural look. If you are considering a facelift procedure, it's important to know not just about the surgical procedure but the protocol following surgery as well. Although it may take a few months to begin seeing final results of a facelift, the recovery process takes much less time. It is difficult to give an absolute number for recovery times as they are dependent on various factors such as age, health status and type of procedure performed.
During a face-lift, facial soft tissues are lifted, excess skin is removed and skin is draped back over the newly repositioned contours. Incisions can be made in the hairline starting at the temples, continuing down and around the front of the ears and ending behind the ears in the lower scalp.
