The New You Awaits
Body Contour is a constellation of many processes rolled right into one. It amalgamates an abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), lateral thigh lift, arm lift and breast lift together to give a slimmer, shapelier look to the patient.
A lot of people who’ve experienced over one hundred pounds loss have many areas that need to be addressed with plastic surgery in order to contour their body and regain a satisfying look. Sometimes, a mini facelift may also be necessary to correct sagging of the mid-face.
Depending on the number of procedures, recovery times and care vary. However, these are some of the top questions most patients ask before undergoing Body Contouring procedures.
Will I spend the night in the hospital?
After this operation, Dr. Rosso performs an assessment of what’s needed to produce a patient’s comfortable and safe recovery in an expedited fashion. There aren’t any restrictions on what you can or cannot eat later. Pain medication could be needed.
Which are the things patients experience after a Body Contour operation?
Patients will wake up in a compression garment which helps them support the abdomen and limit swelling. Drains will probably be set during surgery to lessen fluid on lateral thighs and the abdomen. All incisions are closed – with self-resorbing sutures so no further action is necessary for two weeks. The individual may shower the very first postoperative day.
What will you need to do during recovery at home?
After a set of Body Contouring procedures, Dr. Rosso will provide you with a set of instructions which may include:
- How to care for the surgical sites.
- Specific things to look for at the incision site or in your general health.
- Next appointment at Peninsula Plastic Surgery.
When will I be able to exercise and resume normal activities?
These procedures are really about liberating the patient from the imprisonment of the surplus hanging skin, which can lead to an entirely new outlook on life. Yet, this needs a recovery time of around fourteen days. The majority of individuals start to feel improvements after the initial swelling is gone and they can resume a more regular life. To feel totally healed it takes around six weeks.
