Party Perfect After Plastic Surgery: How Long Does It Take?

As we roll into the busy holiday season many patients wonder and worry about recovery times. How soon before an important holiday party can you schedule plastic surgery? Will you have healed enough to celebrate with family and friends this year? Here is a go to guide that can give you a better idea of how long it takes to go from plastic surgery to party perfect. Call us today at 540-371-7730 and schedule your pre-holiday cosmetic treatments.

Breast Augmentation

Gorgeous holiday curves are on the way. If you’re preparing for breast augmentation plan on being able to return to normal activities, including most holiday parties, in just a few days. You may have some soreness (be careful with hugs), but as long as you’re careful and not doing strenuous exercise, you should be fine.

Liposuction

Say goodbye to stubborn fat this holiday season. Liposuction can eliminate those diet and exercise resistant fat pockets. Usually a patient can return to work in 3 days, but you can have bruising and swelling for a few weeks after treatment. To minimize recovery times, consider SmartLipo since bruising and inflammation generally resolve within a week helping you get party perfect sooner.

Tummy Tuck

For many men and women the gift of a flat stomach is the only thing on their Christmas list this year. A tummy tuck can help you once again achieve this goal.  After a tummy tuck we encourage our patients to begin walking the same day.  Usually patients can be back to work in 5 to 7 days, but may want 2 weeks before an important holiday event.  If you are close to your ideal weight, a mini-tummy tuck may be all you need.  Patients generally recover from this procedure more quickly.

Facelift

Turn back the clock and look like you did at Christmas 10 years ago with a facelift. Many of our patients are surprised to find that facelift recovery isn’t as difficult as they expected. You will probably having some bruising and swelling for 2-3 weeks. Surprise everyone with a younger looking you this holiday season.

Tips for Attending Holiday Parties After Plastic Surgery

The holidays are a great time for plastic surgery, but it is important to take care of yourself in the weeks following surgery. As you attend holiday parties make sure to take your surgeon’s instructions into account. Avoid or limit alcohol as instructed and don’t smoke. As you recover, you’ll need extra rest. Take it easy this holiday season and enjoy a gorgeous new you!
