Health Risks, Recovery And Results Lasting

Expectations: How Long Will Your Results Last. Getting beauty enhancements, and results to last depends entirely on your physical state leading up to cosmetic surgery… the judgment and technical skills of your surgeon… the complexity of your surgical procedure… whether one or several procedures are combined… whether treatment procedures ‘normally’ follow-on for months or years rather than a single major operation. Results from a face lift surgery can be viewed as semi-permanent… you get fairly spectacular and immediate results which can easily hold for many years before a ‘touch-up’ procedure is necessary.

Results from less invasive laser cosmetic procedures such as resurfacing or laser hair removal require multiple visits over a period of months in order to give you the overall results you’re looking for.

Results from skin rejuvenation procedures require disciplined approach and more-or-less continuous treatment programming in order to get and maintain results.

Cosmetic Surgery Questions

Guideline To Health Risks. Getting results… and holding results costs more than time and money. Anyone contemplating surgery invites out-of-normal health risks. Remember that many cosmetic surgery procedures involve invasive separation of bodily tissues… in cases like breast implant surgery or cheek implant surgery even foreign objects are placed within your body. Scarring… infection…potential nerve damage and numbness… swelling and redness… failure by your body tissues to heal… bleeding… technical mistakes by a surgeon resulting in poor or imbalanced looks and corrective surgery.

Types Of Recovery Issues. Dissolving sutures take care of themselves. However, some procedures require surgical removal of sutures 1 to 2 weeks after your surgery. You may feel sore for weeks… or even months when major combined surgery occurs such as in a face lift plus brow lift plus eyelid surgery occurs. Bandages and support wraps are often administered, such as in a face lift or chin surgery where you’ll want to immobilize the treatment area in order to reduce strain on the tissues, and to promote a speedier healing process. Pain killer meds may also be prescribed for several days, or weeks after your surgery depending upon your pain tolerance. A course of antibiotics may also be required in order to reduce or control signs of infection. Bruising and swelling varies, according to the type of cosmetic surgery as well as your body and skin type. For many people, taking time away from work and outside friends is a must-do, eliminating awkwardness and excessive self-awareness issues. Managing your recovery period means that you must first gain knowledge about your cosmetic procedure and then take professional advice from your doctor, in order to build-up realistic expectations.
