Cosmetic Surgery Tip #9: Understand the recovery process
Being fully informed about the recovery process is vital so that you can prepare yourself in advance. Patients often neglect to think about many important post-op factors: Is it a day-surgery procedure? Will you need assistance leaving the hospital or facility? How should you travel home? Will you be in pain? Do you need to take time off work? What does the post-operative care entail? When are the post-operative follow up visits? There are a number of factors to take into consideration and your plastic surgeon should discuss all of these thoroughly with you in advance.
