After meeting with Dr. Csikai, if you elect to proceed, you will meet with our surgery coordinator who will confirm the decisions you made with Dr. Csikai and the fees and payment options associated to the procedures you have elected to proceed with.

What is the recovery time for most plastic surgery procedures?2023-04-04T20:32:16+00:00

Recovery times for plastic surgery procedures can vary greatly from one to the next. For example, a tummy tuck can require 3-4 weeks of rest before getting back to limited activities. On the other hand, breast augmentation procedure patients often return to light work in 7 to 10 days. For most procedures, stitches are usually removed in 7 to 10 days, and patients should avoid any strenuous activities until their stitches are removed. Discomfort that requires prescription pain medication can last for as few as a couple of days and usually not more than 7 days. In summary, the recovery times for plastic surgery will depend on you and your physical condition. If you are physically fit and have good muscle tone, you will recover faster than if you do not. Dr. Csikai will closely oversee your recovery to assure that your recovery goes smooth and that you are back to your regular activities as soon as safely possible.
