Does a Facelift Hurt?

A common question from facelift patients is whether they will have much pain after a facelift. Facelift, neck lifts, or mini facelifts do not actually cause much pain. They patient may feel some discomfort and slight throbbing around the ears. A tight feeling around the neck is quite common too. Significant pain after facelift surgery is more likely associated with a hematoma or bleeding under the skin flap after a facelift. Pain can easily be managed from home with prescription oral medications after facelift surgery.
