For the first 48 hours, the patient will stay at the clinic under observation with the necessary medications.
It is normal for there to be bruising, pain and discomfort.
From the second day, the patient will be checked and sent home with medication and instructions from the specialist.
For the first week, patients should wear the bandage for several hours a day and rest as much as possible, avoiding intense physical exertion, stress and smoking. They should also do lymphatic draining face massage, moisturise the face well and take special care with their eyes and eyelids.
After the second week, the sutures are removed and the bandages can also come off.
Most patients can return to normal life within approximately 15 days, although there may still be some bruising that will fade gradually. Patients will have periodic check-ups and should follow the surgeon’s instructions, which depend on each case.
