Plastic surgery is something you can do whenever you choose. However, if you are looking for the perfect beach body then the ideal time to schedule your cosmetic surgery appointment is now. It gives your body enough time to adjust and heal to the changes so you can confidently wear that bikini you have been eyeing.
Of course, we want you to feel comfortable with the surgery process. Knowing how we perform the surgery can make you understand what your body will go through and why you need time to recover. While we are extremely careful throughout the plastic surgery process, you still need rest in order to let your body heal properly.
Importance of Recovery
Making changes to your body through plastic surgery is a major decision. No matter how long you have thought about getting surgery, you must understand the importance of resting and recuperating prior to surgery. Some procedures require less downtime than others, and we will discuss this length of time before you undergo your surgery.
While medications will be prescribed to help you with the pain, the only way your body will fully recover is if you let it rest and do its job. If you try to do too much too fast, it will take longer before you are able to see the full results of your plastic surgery. As your plastic surgeon, we will go over how much rest you need when you go home and when you can begin doing normal activities. This will allow you to arrange time off of work or having somebody stay with you at home to allow you to rest with their support and a helping hand.
If you do not allow your body to rest, unwanted complications can occur. In order to have plastic surgery, you must agree to follow the recommendations of Houston Plastic Surgery expert Dr. Mark A. Schusterman for downtime so you get the results you want.
