Can I go out during my midface lift recovery?

How much swelling and bruising can I expect during the first week? I'd like to know if I could go out for dinner a few days after the surgery. My husband will be going away for business after I have my mid-face lift and we'd like to spend some time together before he leaves. Will I need to stay indoor for a long time?

Thank you for your question. I recommend having rest for 2-3 days after midface lift surgery.

But after a surgery ,there is no harm in going out and doing your personal simple tasks. Longtime walking and exercises are not advisable in early period. Good Luck
