|Dr. Kai Kaye explains how is a recovery process after a Plastic Surgery - Ocean Clinic Marbella 2018
Recovery is one of the most important parts of your plastic surgery experience. To make sure you know exactly what to expect.
Ocean Clinic Marbella has put together a guide covering all aspects of the recovery process. Post-surgical care will vary from procedure to procedure, but the information below applies to most surgeries.
1. Getting Home After The Surgery
It is advisable not to drive after surgery as your body is recovering from the effects of the anesthetic. You will also have reduced movement and may be experiencing some pain. Therefore, you should arrange in advance for someone to drive you. We can organize a taxi for you, if necessary. (It's recommendable that you can be with someone stay with you for a least 48 hours following surgery).
2. Painkillers And Antibiotics
Everybody experiences pain differently, but in general, you should expect to be taking painkillers for around three to five days. Pain is usually well managed with over the counter medication, although it may leave you feeling fatigued so make time to rest. You may be prescribed a course of antibiotics to take to minimize the chances of post-surgical infection.
3. Bruising And Swelling
Healing differs greatly from person to person - some people bruise easily, while others hardly bruise at all. You will probably have an idea of how well you heal or how prone to swelling you are, which can help inform you about how long your recovery is likely to take. However, it is safe to assume a period of around two weeks for bruising and swelling to subside (a little longer if you are having facial bones broken).
4. Dressings And Stitches
Since you will be asked to return to the clinic at different intervals after your surgery in order to have dressings changed or removed. Some procedures use dissolvable stitches, meaning you won’t have to have them removed. If you have received regular stitches, you will be asked to come back in after 10 days for them to be taken out. If you have undergone rhinoplasty, your nose cast will also be removed after 10 days.
5. Taking A Bath Or Shower
Some dressings can be worn in the shower and dried with a hairdryer afterward. Other bandages and casts must be kept dry meaning you will be unable to bathe properly until they are removed. You should plan to wash with a flannel and you might want to seek the assistance of a partner or friend to wash your hair.
You can be well prepared by stocking up on toiletries like dry shampoo and face wipes in advance.
6. Sleeping After Surgery
To aid lymphatic drainage and help the swelling go down, you may be asked to sleep in a semi-upright position. If you have a facial cast on or have had breast implants, it is even more important to sleep in a way that will not impair your surgical results.
7. Dealing With Scars
As you heal, you may notice areas of hardness under the skin as well as lumps, bumps, and unevenness. This can take months to soften up and even out so it’s important not to worry about it. To speed up the release of scar tissue, you may be offered a course of ultrasound therapy sessions. You may experience numbness for a number of months while the nerves repair themselves.
8. A Final Result Of Your Surgery
The healing process is very gradual and things will be changing and developing inside your body for many week post-surgery. The area that has been operated on will continue to refine and soften. Only when all hardness caused by scar tissue and swelling has gone will you really see how good it looks. To keep track of your progress, you might like to take a photo every month!
Lastly, you've would have to manage well your expectations, Plastic surgery is generally done in hoping perfect results but we have to be honest with ourselves so you don't have to set yourself up for disappointment. Family support is always a priority since your relatives or maybe friends could be of an important moral support, especially during the initial stages of healing
