Plastic Surgery for Men Recovery
Your recovery timeframe and the degree of discomfort, bruising, or swelling you may feel will depend on how well your body responds to the treatment. For example, it is advised that you stop smoking and drinking alcohol at least two weeks prior to and one week after your surgery. Ideally, you should stop altogether, as this will help improve your recovery and speed healing. You may also be asked to wear a compression garment, apply special creams, or simply take it easy and let your body heal.
