Recovery Time

People with sedentary jobs should take between 4 and 7 days off. Those with physical jobs should take 1-2 weeks off.

What happens before the procedure?

Smoking and illicit drug use must be strictly avoided before the procedure.  We take smoking very seriously as a high risk for any procedure, so you must be aware of the cancellation policy if you smoke.  Smoking increases the risk of some serious complications during and after surgery.  Ideally, you should stop smoking at least 8 weeks prior to a procedure, cutting down does not reduce the risk of complications, however, the greatest health benefit is gained by quitting smoking for good.  More information about the possible complications, as well as information about how to quit, is available here.

You should be fit and healthy, and avoid blood thinning medication such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicine and warfarin. At least two consultations are needed before most procedures. A full history and examination will be conducted. You will be started on antibiotics and extensive instructions will be given.

What happens during the procedure?

The surgery is performed as a day-case procedure under sedation in our Health Department licensed clinic. You are usually admitted early in the morning and discharged later that afternoon.

At the end of your procedure, you will go through to recovery where you will be discharged home to your carer to rest. You will then come back the very next day for one of your follow up appointments.

Absolute Cosmetic Medicine is dedicated to providing patient-focused care with minimal discomfort, so most of our patients have their procedure carried out under sedation.

What happens after the procedure?

It’s normal to expect minimal discomfort for the first few days after your procedure. A distinct improvement will be seen during the first week, but swelling may set in for up to 6 weeks. The end result is, on average, seen at 3 months, but sometimes as early as 1 month. For some patients, the end result can take up to 12 months.

Recovery time is quick and most patients can resume normal activity within 2-3 days after the procedure. We recommend light exercise at 1 week, moderate at 2 weeks, full at 3 weeks and extreme exercise to be avoided for 6-12 weeks.
