Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS founder and owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, offers average times for recovery post-cosmetic-surgery emphasizing that individual nature and circumstances may require longer recovery times.

ATLANTA, GA, April 1, 2019: Founder and Owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS posted a new blog on the Oculus website entitled, Post-Cosmetic-Surgical Recovery Time Expectations.” Dr. Cole basically recommends planning recovery time the way one would plan food for a party, saying, “It’s better to have more than not enough.”

As Dr. Cole points out, “Healing and recovery times post-cosmetic surgery is not an exact recipe since so many things can influence recovery time.” He continues to elaborate, “It depends on the state of health you’re in when you get the surgery. How the surgery went. What kind of work you will be returning to – are you required to stand on your feet all day or lift heavy objects. It also depends on how well you take care of yourself immediately after surgery.” “In other words,” he adds, “how well you follow the prescribed routines for the specific surgery.”

According to Dr. Cole, “Downtime doesn’t have to get you down or keep you down if you ask your plastic surgeon for specific guidelines pre- and post-surgery.”

“While there are average times for recovery from pretty much all cosmetic surgical procedures,” writes Dr. Cole, “you must consider your own personal circumstances and plan conservatively. For instance, if the expected recovery time is one week, plan to reserve two solid weeks out of your schedule. This way you’ll be prepared and will not have to undergo any undue stress if there are unexpected delays in your recovery.”
