Introducing the Plastic Surgery Recovery Time Calculator
How long is recovery time after cosmetic surgery? Naturally, if you’re interested in having plastic surgery, you want to know when you can return to your normal routine after the procedure. That’s why we created the Plastic Surgery Recovery Calculator. This surgery recovery timeline guide provides estimates for some the most popular plastic procedures performed in the U.S. each year, including:
At Tannan Plastic Surgery, we want you to have as much information as possible to make the best decision for you! We were blown away by how successful our first resource, the Plastic Surgery Cost Calculator, has been. It received over 5,000 views in just 5 months after going live. Several of our patients have thanked us for the Cost Calculator, which helped them plan their investment in procedures like breast enhancement, liposuction, facelift, rhinoplasty and more.
With so many questions from patients on recovery time, the Plastic Surgery Recovery Calculator was a logical addition to our collection of resources. We are excited to launch the Recovery Calculator and hope you find it informative when scheduling your next treatment.
How does the cosmetic surgery recovery time calculator work?
The Plastic Surgery Recovery Calculator is easy to use. Simply choose your procedure from a drop-down menu, then pick your desired date for a consultation with your board-certified plastic surgeon. A recovery timeline displays the estimated dates for when you might expect to resume light activity and when you will most likely be back to your normal routine.
Along with estimated dates, the Recovery Calculator also provides basic recommendations on things to avoid during recovery. For example, when healing from breast implant surgery, it’s best to avoid overhead shoulder motions during the first few weeks following surgery. Sometimes ranges are provided as well. For example, after tummy tuck surgery, while you might be back to a normal routine after a few weeks, it might take longer before your core strength is ready for an intense gym workout.
How can this plastic surgery recovery guide help me?
The Recovery Calculator is a tremendous resource for planning for recovery from your plastic surgery procedure. This guide can help you:
- Decide when to schedule your procedure
- Plan for taking recommended time off from work
- Find help around the house during the initial recovery period
- Time your results for an upcoming vacation, holiday or beach trip
Bear in mind though — your actual recovery time will vary depending on your specific needs and surgical outcomes. The Recovery Calculator is merely a guide based on average recovery times for plastic surgery patients.
