How to Best Prepare for Your Recovery From Plastic Surgery

Have you decided to undergo a cosmetic procedure? Are you wondering what you can do to prepare your home, mind, and body for the healing period? Continue reading to learn how you can best prepare for your recovery from plastic surgery.

Once you have chosen the right plastic surgeon and have your surgery appointment scheduled, the next big step is to get ready for your recovery. While your plastic surgeon will give you instructions and advice regarding your healing period, there are many other aspects of your recovery that are important and should be prepared in advance.

While your surgeon can provide resources and guidance for your healing period, they cannot be there with you throughout it all. Once you leave our Kelowna based clinic, you will be responsible for your recovery, and the choices you make can have a significant impact on how well, comfortably, and quickly you heal.

How to Best Prepare for Your Recovery From Plastic Surgery

Assemble Your Home

If you go through an invasive plastic surgery such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or breast lift, you will need to rest to give your body time to heal. After you have been discharged from the clinic and are allowed to return home, you will want a comfortable space set up where you can rest and take care of your wounds.

The best way to help promote a healthy healing period is to focus your energy on the parts of your body that require it. Limiting even mildly strenuous activities such as walking will do wonders for your recovery and prevent any avoidable secondary issues such as ripped stitches.

Have Somebody Ready To Help

Many normal, daily tasks will likely be quite difficult and strenuous after your surgery. Simple tasks such as cooking, walking, and showering may be challenging and cause unnecessary damage to the stitches or grafts. Having somebody present to cook for you, take care of your children, and provide general assistance is key to ensuring a comfortable recovery.

Follow All Post-Procedure Instructions

After your procedure is complete, your plastic surgeon will provide you with some instructions and guidelines to help you best manage your recovery. While some of the advice and directions you are provided may seem redundant, in truth, they could make or break the success of your recovery. With over 30 years of medical experience, Dr. Brian Peterson is an expert in ensuring your healthy recovery.


Be Patient and Understand That Healing Takes Time

Depending on the type of cosmetic procedure you undergo, there will likely be a recovery period where the full results will not be evident for weeks or months. During this time, it is imperative that you remain patient. Over time, the swelling will go down, and the scars will go away. It is just a matter of waiting for the body to heal itself.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
