Generally, post-operative instructions call for rest and limited movement to speed up the healing process and recovery time for our surgery patients.
Recovery from plastic surgery is different for each individual, and each procedure requires a different recovery time. Bruises usually disappear within a few days, and most swelling is gone in a matter of weeks.
If you follow our post-operative instructions carefully, you will be able to enjoy your normal activities within no time. Your scars will fade over time but are permanent. We take care to conceal any scars so that they are barely visible, if at all.
The image-enhancing effects of plastic surgery become more evident over time, with certain procedures taking up to a year for your body to fully adjust and settle into its new look. When you come in for your consultation we can discuss your expected recovery period and any post-operative instructions in detail.
