Anti-aging surgery precautions

Preoperative Precautions

Check: What to prepare before Plastic Surgery

Post-operative Precautions

  1. Swelling and bruises will occur for 3 days after the surgery but they will gradually be subsided afterwards.
  2. Applying an ice-pack for 2-3 days will be helpful. However, in case of fat graft, applying ice-pack should be avoided. If ice compresses a fat grafted area, the area would possibly be sunken and the rate of fat engraftment would greatly decrease. However, it would be good if a fat grafted area is kept cool by rolling ice near the surgical area.
  3. Do not compress or massage on the surgical area. Especially in case of fat graft, this could decrease the engraftment rate or the fat might move to other position.
  4. Facial wash and make-up can be done on the next day of the surgery.
  5. Please do not voluntarily remove bandages or tapes from a surgical area until a nurse does it.
  6. Please avoid heavy exercises such as aerobics or gym workout for 4weeks. However, going for a walk is recommended.
  7. Shower can be done from the next day of the stitches removal, but please avoid sauna and hot spring for 4 weeks.
  8. Do not bend your head or lie face down.
  9. Supporting your head with large pillows can be helpful in reducing swelling or pain. Make sure your neck should not be bent on the pillows. Do not turn your neck sideways or lie face down, but try to sleep in straight position.
