Healing rates vary after liposuction. Depending on the amount of fat removed and the number of locations treated, patients may return to work within 24 hours to 1 or 2 weeks after treatment. Those having liposuction of the abdomen, hips, buttocks or thighs are asked to wear a support garment such as Spanx® post-operatively for 1 to 2 days. Patients can usually return to exercise and other strenuous activity within 2 to 4 weeks. Full recovery from bruising and swelling can take anywhere from 1 to 6 months. The slimmer contour achieved after liposuction can be maintained with a sensible diet and regular exercise.

There are exceptions, however, especially in cases of trauma or breathing difficulties. When young patients undergo rhinoplasty, the doctor must take special care to protect the still delicate nasal features. Additionally, a doctor should make sure that the patient is emotionally and mentally prepared for nose reshaping surgery.

Apart from the plastic surgery itself, the patient would also need to consider extra costs that are not included in the price quote they receive. These can comprise of the cost of prescription drugs the patient may need to take, the surgical garments required for after the surgery, and the costs of medical tests if necessary, among others. It should be noted, though, that some plastic doctors exclude the anaesthesiologist's fee and operating room charges from their quote, so it is always recommended to read the small letters or ask what's included in the offered package so you can have the right overall cost estimate for the Brazilian buttock augmentation.
Like facelift surgery, brow lift surgery eliminates sagging skin and reduces deep creases. However, brow lifts specifically target the forehead and the area between the eyebrows. The doctor creates an incision along the hairline or the crown of the head. Then he or she lifts the underlying muscles to reduce frown lines, vertical creases, sagging eyebrows, and hooded brows.
