One week after surgery is too soon to be looking for shape and size results. Swelling begins to subside after about 10 days but it is a very gradual process. I advise my patients that the final results after surgery will not be apparent until approximately one full year after surgery. It is important to have patience with your body right now and to give it the time required to fully heal. Be sure to visit your surgeon’s office if you have any questions and always follow your post-operative instructions.
