Continuing our latest Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery series, Five questions to ask yourself before consulting a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon — today, we want to discuss recovery. More specifically, Can you take time off for plastic surgery to achieve a full recovery?
If you think about the topic of recovery, it is quite simple, yet something not prominently discussed aloud. Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is a proponent of taking all the time needed post-procedure to recovery. Proper recovery and downtime in many situations set the stage for the results our patients want.
When you ask yourself, Can you take time off to achieve a full recovery? It is one thing to be hopeful that can, and it is another thing to plan your time off around recovery.
Many times, during your initial consultations, Dr. Steven Davis will recommend that we schedule your plastic surgery or desired procedure around vacation days, holiday weekends, and other opportunities for you (the patient) to experience some quiet downtime.
We understand in this current reality of 2020, downtime and quiet time is a luxury. Again, this is why we ask, Can you take time off to achieve a full recovery? If the answer is No, we think it is best to figure out a time you can take the required time. Conversely, if you can unequivocally answer, Yes, feel free to consult our team at DCPS to schedule the next steps.
