We strive to make sure you are informed and comfortable each step of the way. To help you feel more prepared to make a decision about your plastic surgery, we’ve compiled a list of of our most frequently asked questions.
In addition to the initial consultation, you’ll make one more preoperative appointment. At this appointment, you will discuss any questions that may have arisen and talk about specific details of the surgery with Mr Ferrando. You will also have pre-operative photos taken for your medical records. You will be expected to sign a release form for the images that will be used for in-office patient education.
You will be asked to sign a consent form, designed to make certain that you fully understand what to expect and that your physician is confident in your understanding. Make sure you understand all the a procedure or treatment entails and the possible risks and complications defined in an informed consent document before signing.
The length of the surgery depends on the surgery and the patient, but most procedures take between 1 and 6 hours.
You will need someone with you for the full 24 hours following the procedure. You will be recovering from anesthesia during this time and it is important that someone drive you home and stay with you.
For at least 6 weeks following your surgery, you should avoid heavy lifting (anything over 20lbs), pushing or pulling heavy objects, and working out. You will also need to wear a compression garment for those 6 weeks. You can resume everyday activities as soon as you feel comfortable doing so.
This depends on the type of surgery you have and the type of work you do, but you should plan to take between 3 and 14 days off of work. Breast augmentation patients are typically back to work in 3 days while more intrusive surgeries like Brazilian butt lifts and mommy makeovers require you to take at least 14 days.
This is another aspect of recovery that depends on the surgery you selected. The peak of inflammation is usually 3 days after surgery, at which point swelling and pain will begin to subside.
Most of the initial swelling starts to subside about 2 weeks after surgery but wound healing can take anywhere between 6-12 months
You should be able to see the final results of your surgery after 3 months with minimal changes until the 6 month mark.
Your bandages will be removed after 48 hours, at which point you will be able to shower.
You will have at least two follow-up appointments: one at 1-week post-op and one at 2-3 months after your surgery. More appointments will be scheduled as needed.
