Dr. Mark Petroff of the Petroff Center Plastic Surgery has released an educational infographic on the right and wrong way to approach facelift recovery.


Lake Oswego, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2016 -- Dr. Mark Petroff, board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Portland, OR and founder of the Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa, has created and shared an educational infographic on the dos and don'ts of facelift recovery. This patient resource is the latest addition to Dr. Petroff's library of visual tools to help patients better understand the different aspects of skincare, facial plastic surgery and medical spa treatments.

The facelift is one of the most commonly performed procedures at Petroff Center. Because Dr. Petroff always stresses the importance of proper recovery, he decided to compose a visual aid for his patients. With a color scheme to match the practice's brand and fun graphics to catch the reader's attention, the infographic is equally design-savvy as it is information-heavy. Dr. Petroff includes a long list of aftercare tips such as:

- Keep your head elevated for comfort and to reduce swelling.
- Ease into your regular fitness routine 2-3 weeks after surgery.
- Do not apply ice or anything frozen directly to your skin.
- Do not apply any heat or pressure to any area of the face.
- Refrain from direct sun exposure to prevent sunburn and irregular pigmentation.

The Do's & Don'ts of Facelift Recovery infographic can be found on Dr. Petroff's plastic surgery blog. Committed to better serving his patients and keeping the plastic surgery community educated, Dr. Petroff has optimized each blog post, so those researching cosmetic treatments online can easily access his website's plethora of information. Additionally, Dr. Petroff has provided a multitude of facelift Before & After photos so patients can review Dr. Petroff's skilled results.
