Cosmetic treatments are everywhere! Whether it’s your favorite celebrities, friends, family, or coworkers, you likely often see the impactful results of plastic surgery. Yet, while many are used to seeing the outcomes of surgeries, patients are sometimes unaware of the recovery and downtime before coming in for a consultation. While every patient and their recovery are unique, knowing what to expect can set you up for success!

Patients and their recovery

Since every patient’s needs and bodies are unique, timelines vary—even among those seeking similar treatments. Factors like age, general health, genetics, and preexisting conditions can all impact healing. While Dr. Houser’s job is to deliver expert care and beautiful aesthetics, patients must also be ready to follow our team’s instructions.

For instance, smoking can decrease your body’s ability to heal, stretching out your estimated recovery time. Skipping prescribed medications or becoming negligent with drains can make your recovery uncomfortable or put you at an elevated risk for infection. Following all of our directions, including adequately resting, is crucial for a comfortable, efficient recovery.

During your consultation and postoperative checkups with Dr. Houser, he will discuss your estimated recovery time based on your procedure. Below are some estimated timelines for common cosmetic treatments:
