After the surgery

After the surgery, you will feel that fluids are draining from the incisions.
To prevent swelling, and to help the skin adapt to the new contour, you will be indicated to wear elastic clothing for two to four weeks. You must take antibiotics for seven days to prevent infections.
Do not expect to look or feel spectacularly well right after the surgery, even though the new techniques are known for reducing post-surgery discomfort. You may feel some pain, burning, swelling, bleeding, and temporary bruises may appear. The pain can be controlled with normal analgesic medication, but you may feel somewhat rigid or painful for some days.
It is normal to feel somewhat anxious or depressed in the days or weeks following surgery. In any case, these feelings will diminish as soon as you begin to look and feel better.
Usually, sutures are removed between the tenth and the fifteenth days.
The swelling and the bruises will disappear gradually in the next four weeks, and you will begin to see the results after four to six weeks, although the end of this process will take place after six months.
