The large majority of facial plastic surgeries are minimally-invasive in nature. Unless you suffer from rare complications, recovery is quick and often pain free. It is also possible to get back to life as normal when you follow effective follow-up care from Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery.
Recommendations from Dr. Benjamin C. Stong
Side effects are not likely to occur after your treatment or surgery, unless proper aftercare advice is ignored. Benjamin C. Stong, MD and his team proactively provide instructions on how to care for the treatment area and any associated scarring. If you are unsure about any of the follow-up steps to ensure successful recovery, make sure to check your understanding during your post-op consultation.
While some treatments, such as facial fillers, do not necessitate asking for recovery support from family or friends, you may need help after more intrusive procedures. Dr. Stong will make sure you are fully aware of any transport requirements, including having someone accompanying you to our Atlanta offices. You may also require assistance with activities at home such as getting dressed, cleaning and preparing meals.
Reduce Sun Exposure
Scar tissue is perhaps the most common adverse event after plastic surgery. One of the major contributors of visible or abnormal scars is too much time spent in the sun. It is crucial that you protect the skin around an operation site. Compression garments that are part of your aftercare can increase dehydration, so do not exacerbate the situation by overexposing skin in the sun unnecessarily.
Plastic Surgery Consultation
Of course, before you need to worry about aftercare considerations, it is important to attend a consultation with Dr. Stong and his team at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery. This stage of the process will help prepare you for what is ahead, based on the elective treatments you have chosen to pursue.
During your facial plastic surgery consultation, you are free to ask questions, take note and request any relevant literature on potential treatment options. Call the Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery offices in Atlanta, Georgia, today to learn more about available procedures and our aftercare approach.
