As well as with breast augmentation, instructions are similar: time necessary for recovery depends on the procedure a patient is undergoing, and on the patient herself. Help is mostly needed during the first and second day, after that a patient can usually take care of herself. The second day after the procedure, a patient can function normally, although it can be individual. Many of them can return to work in 10 to 12 days, but it depends on the individual as well. It is necessary to avoid hard efforts and heavy lifting during the next 4-6 weeks.
It is of utmost importance to follow the instructions given by the doctor in order to recover as quickly as possible. Usually, we recommend several postoperative control examinations, in order for the surgeon to monitor the progress of recovery.
