How Long Does it Take to Heal from Plastic Surgery?

Read Transcript

If you're considering having actual plastic surgery where you're being operated on. I would expect to have a recovery of a minimum of about a week which could extend up to several weeks. And it really depends on the procedures, certain procedures, certain procedures like let's say just getting your eye lids done.

Within a few days you're going to feel a lot better and you're not going to have much pain. And then there are other procedures that are much more evasive, let's say a body lift where it's going to several weeks before you really are back on your feet feeling really good. So talk to your plastic surgeon about this.

Make sure that you plan ahead with your work schedule, with taking care of family members. To make sure that you have this well planned out.
