Sleeping Post Op
I recommend that my patients sleep slightly elevated for at least the first week because it helps make repositioning easier and may reduce swelling. However I have no issue with patients sleeping on their side and some people find that they cannot sleep elevated. I recommend that you discuss these concerns with your Plastic Surgeon as each has their own preferred post op protocols and they know your situation the best.
