HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME FOR A SURGICAL PROCEDURE? WHEN CAN I GO BACK TO WORK?
The recovery time will vary based on each surgical procedure, and what is required to achieve the results you want. While we strive to be as minimally invasive as possible, occasionally prolonged recovery is to be expected, depending on the procedure. For information regarding specific procedures, please look under the individual procedure sections on this website.
HOW LONG WILL THE POST-OPERATIVE RESULTS LAST?
Once again, the results vary according to procedure. There is not much change that is expected over time with fixed implants such as chin or cheek implants. There is likewise not much change that will occur to the nose or ears, other than typical age related changes, after recovery is complete. For facelifts, eyelid surgery and brow lifts, you should look better at each point in time than you would have if no surgery had been done, but gravity and life will continue to age you. Touch-ups may be required down the road if desired.
