Cosmetic Surgery Whitby - Post-Operative PeriodThe recovery period following cosmetic surgery is usually fairly brief. Complete physical recovery may take a month or more, no matter what operation is performed. Complete healing depends upon many factors. These include the type of surgery performed, the area of the body on which it was performed, and the healing capacity of the patient. For example, a patient who undergoes correction of a nasal deformity may be presentable two weeks after surgery. However, swelling disappears gradually and full mobility of the tissues may take up to a year to return fully. Some minor itching and "pins and needles" sensations may be felt in tissues that are in the healing phase. Many months are required before the final result is attained.
Dr Sproule's many years of experience in cosmetic surgery ensures thaat his Whitby cosmetic surgery patients will transition smoothly to recovery following surgery.
