Is it okay to go to a concert 3 weeks after having a facelift?

Can loud noises affect the healing process?

Generally, 3 weeks after surgery, the healing has made tremendous strides. Scars will have about 20% of normal skin, so you should still care not to be jumping around too much. I tell patients that at 3 weeks they can resume all light exercise activities, holding off on running and contact sports for a couple more weeks. I wish you success and enjoy the concert!
