The length of your recovery period will depend on your specific procedure and other health & lifestyle factors. Recovery times can vary significantly from person to person. The general rule, however, is that you should allow 4-6 weeks for recovery following your surgery.
You will need to work with your Surgeon to allow for adequate and proper healing time. It is important to consult with your Surgeon before returning to daily activities such as driving and exercise.
It is also important to wear the post-operative compression garments throughout your recovery period (usually up to 6 weeks). At Coco Ruby Plastic Surgery, your garments will be provided by your Surgeon. Good results depend on a collaborative approach and a healthy lifestyle. You will need to be willing to follow the specific instructions given to you by your Surgeon, and attend all post-operative consultations.
