Taking care of yourself after a plastic surgery procedure is important, and while most plastic surgery procedures are minimally invasive – they still require some amount of time for recovery and healing. In this article, we are going to provide some post-op tips to help you recover after your plastic surgery procedure.
Follow Your Doctor’s Instructions
This is perhaps the most important piece of advice we can give you. We can’t stress enough the importance of following your doctor’s post-operative instructions to the letter. Your doctor knows your situation better than anyone and has tailored your post-op instructions to fit your specific needs. If you fail to follow these instructions, you risk prolonging your recovery.
Ask for Help
Depending on the procedure you have done, you may be laid up for a day or several weeks. Reach out to your family and friends to ask for help during your recovery. You may need help cooking, cleaning, and performing other tasks that you may be unable to complete.
Keep Yourself Entertained
Recovering from a surgical procedure can be pretty boring, as most of it is just resting and allowing your body to heal itself. Do everything you can to entertain yourself with movies, books, games, etc.
