Taking Care After Plastic Surgery

January 1, 2021

Taking Care After Plastic SurgeryA patient’s health and safety are top priority when it comes to plastic surgery. After having surgery, the recovery period is a critical stage of the plastic surgery journey. This is why following your surgeon’s post-op instructions to the letter, will not only help you avoid complications and make you feel more comfortable, but also ensure you have optimal results.

I like to provide all my patients with general post-surgical care instructions, in addition to specific procedure instructions. These general care instructions offer valuable information on things like what you need to do and what you need to buy before having surgery to prepare for a better post-op experience. They also provide insight on how you can expect to feel physically and what you may have to go through.

Here’s a quick 10 item list on some of the typical directives you’ll find in our general post-surgery care instructions to help you get an idea of the necessities.

Now that you have an understanding of the importance of post-op care, be sure to ask your plastic surgeon any questions you may have on post-surgery so that you feel most at ease during your recovery. Contact us for more info.
