Patients who want or need cosmetic surgery often put it off. Sometimes they do it for financial reasons, but other times they have to delay it for almost the exact same reasons they desire the surgery in the first place: how they fear it will make them look.
Bruising, even temporarily, can be enough of an obstacle to keep a person from having the facial surgery they want or need. So how bad is the healing and recovery after facial plastic surgery, really?
The truth is that bruising after surgery depends in part upon what kind of surgery you’re having and what kind of surgeon is performing it. Dr. Stong is a highly trained, experienced, double board certified plastic surgeon. He uses the most effective, least invasive techniques possible, which typically provides the best results. Still, very minor bruising may occur. It can take up to two weeks to completely disappear.
Want A Change but Not Ready for Surgery?
If you’re ready to make a change to your facial features but aren’t ready to have surgery, check out our menu of non-surgical injectables. Liquid facelifts, nose-jobs, and eye-lifts are a great way to try out the look without committing to surgery. Dr. Stong administers these using a blunt tipped cannula to minimize bruising and swelling.
When you’re ready to make a change either with injectables or surgery, the team at Kalos Plastic Surgery in Atlanta is here to help. Schedule your consultation today and start to feel better tomorrow.
