The recovery process may last for a few days, in which case patients are advised to take these days off work to get proper rest. In certain cases, a short hospital stay may be necessary. After the surgery, the patients may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to help with the healing and minimise any swelling. Sometimes, your surgeon will temporarily place a small, thin tube under the skin in order to drain excess blood and fluids, if necessary. The patients must avoid engaging in any strenuous activities or doing sports until they are fully recovered which will be assessed by their surgeon. If, after the procedure, you experience temperature higher than 38°C, fever, heavy bleeding, worsening redness around the incisions or increasing pain, contact your surgeon immediately.
