Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Golla, will instruct you on how to care for the surgical site during the initial healing stage, which generally lasts between 10 and 14 days. You may be prescribed medications to be taken orally or applied topically to guard against infection. Towards the end of the initial healing stage, you will also need to return to your physician to have any sutures or clips removed.
You can expect to have bruising, swelling, discomfort, and redness following the procedure, which will all fade with time.
