The goal of a rhytidectomy is to create a younger, more vibrant appearance without people ever noticing something has been done. Dr. James Ridgway’s philosophy is to “provide the highest standard of care and medical expertise.” This includes the period after surgery known as the rhytidectomy healing phase.

During the rhytidectomy healing portion of the surgery, clothing options are a critical aspect that is often overlooked. Layering is good because many patients are cold following surgery. When choosing what to wear following surgery, be aware that moderate amounts of oozing blood and fluids are common following many procedures, including a facelift.

To better plan for your Seattle facelift healing, be sure to bring up any questions or concerns you may have during your initial consultation. To set up an appointment, contact our Bellevue office.
