They are generally not permanent.
Most patients will see improvement between four to eight weeks.
Sometimes it can take much longer.
Keep in close contact with your plastic surgeon.
It's important for your plastic surgeon to document with photographs or videos.
This will allow assessing improvements as you get better.
Best of luck,
