How Long Does Facial Implant Recovery Take?
Facial implants are perhaps one of the easiest facial rejuvenation procedures from which to recover. Most of Dr. Stein’s patients spend between 4-7 days recuperating in the comfort of their homes before returning to work.
Swelling, redness, and some bruising are perfectly normal and will subside within 1-2 weeks, though it can take a few months for your tissues and new implants to fully settle. You’ll notice immediate prominence to your chin or cheekbones or beautifully plump lips and diminished facial folds. For the most part, you’ll be cleared for more strenuous exercise around 3-4 weeks following your procedure, provided you’re cautious.
It’s important to note that it will take several weeks for the implants to fully integrate into position in relation to surrounding tissues, so patients are urged to take special care not to engage in activities where the implants could be bumped out of position or jostled. This involves some time off from certain high-contact sports or extracurricular activities.
At Stein Plastic Surgery, our philosophy is to provide our patients the utmost in compassionate care in the serene privacy of our state-of-the-art facility. Having a procedure to improve your quality of life is inherently vulnerable, and with Dr. Stein’s knowledgeable and understanding bedside manner, you’re in the best hands in Raleigh.
