Why Choose A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon and be confident you are in the care of a highly-trained surgeon you can trust.
The days and weeks immediately following your surgery are critical to obtaining a good final result. Therefore, it's essential that you follow your plastic surgeon's orders to the letter.
During your recovery, the doctor's orders are likely to include:
However, plastic surgeons understand that it's sometimes difficult for men, who are programmed by society to be stoic, to remain in bed for very long or to accept help from others during recovery. Studies have shown that men often deny their pain and feel foolish about asking for help after surgery. Men who reject help may have an especially difficult recovery if post-operative depression sets in during the weeks following surgery.
To avoid post-operative problems, it's important that you arrange to have a support person available to help you – both physically and emotionally – for about a week after surgery. If you get the help and rest you need, you'll improve your chances of a quicker recovery – and you may see your results a lot sooner.
