This operation is performed under moderate sedation and takes about one and a half hours to perform. A drain and head dressing are normally applied. It is usually an outpatient procedure. Bathing and grooming take place the next day and aerobic activities can be resumed in two weeks. In many cases laser resurfacing is employed to smooth out the skin and diminish the blemished and dark spots. Volume restoration is also recommended for patients with aging depressions of the face.
