Your recovery will be supported with detailed post-op care instructions. This includes dietary recommendations, oral hygiene practices, and potential medications to manage any discomfort and prevent infections.
While you might be excited to show off your newly contoured face, it’s crucial to avoid strenuous activities and follow your surgeon’s advice on resuming daily tasks.
