What is the Best Time to Have surgery?
If you are concerned enough about the issue to explore your options, then the time is probably right for having facial surgery. If it weren't the right time, you wouldn't be looking. So if you and your surgeon both agree, then go ahead. Of course, its always best to plan ahead. Most recovery periods range from seven to fourteen days and you'll want to arrange your work schedule and social calendar around that. You'll also need to take good care of yourself: stop smoking, get plenty of rest, and eat sensibly before and after the surgery. Still not sure? Look at it this way. The only regret most patients have AFTERWARDS is that they waited so long to finally do something about it.
