Embarking on your transformation journey can feel like a significant step. At CARE, we are dedicated to making your recovery experience uplifting and reassuring. We prioritize taking proactive measures weeks before your procedure to ensure a seamless and comfortable healing process. While every surgery may come with its unique challenges, we’re here to guide you with helpful tips, compassionate care, and unwavering support, making your recovery journey a truly positive and rewarding one.

Follow Dr. Coan’s Pre-Operative and Post-Operative Instructions

At CARE, you are in the expert hands of Dr. Brian Coan, a double-board certified plastic surgeon and a leader in his field, and our top-notch surgical team. Following your surgeon’s instructions is crucial to having a smooth recovery process. These instructions may include pain medication, going to your follow-up appointments, having a family member take care of you, or wearing a compression garment. While most procedures require similar recovery instructions, there are some differences based on the cosmetic surgery you’re having.

Our extensive consultation process ensures that you will have all the information you need about your procedure, including how long your recovery time will be.

Feel free to ask any questions, share your concerns, and trust that we’re here to support you every step of the way as you let your body heal. Your comfort, health, and well-being are our top priorities, and we’re excited to embark on this transformative journey together!

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

Prioritize a healthy lifestyle to support your recovery post-operation. Whether you’re having breast augmentation, liposuction, a tummy tuck, or something else, a healthy lifestyle is key to a smooth recovery. This includes eating a healthy and nutritious diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains to promote healing. Also, make sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Please avoid smoking and limit alcohol consumption, as these can negatively impact your recovery and healing process.

While it’s important to rest and avoid strenuous activities initially, it’s also crucial to gradually introduce light physical activity as recommended by your surgeon. This can help improve circulation, reduce swelling, and promote faster healing post-procedure. However, avoid activities that strain the surgical area or that could jeopardize your recovery. As always, listen to your plastic surgeons and providers for recommendations specific to your personal recovery needs post-procedure.

Communicate with Your Surgeon

Maintain open communication with your plastic surgeon throughout the recovery process. If you have any concerns or questions or notice any unusual symptoms, contact the surgical team immediately. They are equipped to provide guidance and address any issues that may arise so you can maintain a speedy and seamless recovery.

Botox and Dermal Fillers

While not surgical procedures, Botox and dermal fillers can often be used in conjunction with plastic surgery procedures to enhance results. For example, Botox can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, while dermal fillers can add volume and improve facial contours. These services can complement procedures like facelifts, brow lifts, or eyelid surgery.
