If you have a week’s vacation that you need to use, why not treat yourself to a cosmetic procedure or two to help you look and feel your best and boost your self-esteem? Many women may be unaware that they can recover from these popular cosmetic procedures and be ready to return to work in just one week.
In the first six weeks after your breast augmentation, you will need to gradually reintroduce your body to a structured workout schedule and other more strenuous physical activities. However, most women are able to return to work and other normal daily activities in just one week after their breast enhancement procedure.
Liposuction also requires about one week of at-home rest before resuming your normal work schedule, although your exact recovery time for this procedure can depend on which areas you choose to include and whether or not it is combined with a tummy tuck. Liposuction is commonly paired with a tummy tuck to enhance the final outcome and achieve a smoother, sleeker look.
Because a tummy tuck is more extensive than liposuction, as it involves removing excess tissue and tightening the remaining skin and muscle of your abdomen, this cosmetic procedure may require one to two weeks of recovery time.
If you’re not quite ready to go under the knife, you may want to think about nonsurgical body contouring during your time off. CoolSculpting is one of the most popular ways to slim and shape your body contours without surgery. CoolSculpting treatment areas include the flanks, abdomen, back and many more parts of the body.
If you’re concerned about your plastic surgery recovery time, be sure to discuss this with your cosmetic surgeon during your consultation. While procedures like breast implants, liposuction and abdominoplasty don’t generally require much more than one week before you can expect to be on your feet and back at work, it’s still important that you don’t rush the recovery process.
