How Much Downtime Is Needed For Fat Transfer, Skin Tightening, and Liposuction Cosmetic Procedures?
In the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation movie, Clark Griswoll was very disappointed when he didn't get the work bonus he had anticipated for so long. That sounds like a nightmare Christmas, right? After a year of working hard, everyone deserves to feel happy and be pampered during the holidays. If you’re looking to get some cosmetic procedures done during your vacation, Innovations Medical has a lot of options that you can do without taking any time off from work.
One popular procedure is Thermage, which is the non-surgical tightening of loose skin. It uses radio frequency to tighten loose skin. The heat produced makes your skin tighter and smoother. If you do this a day after Christmas, you can go back to work the next day. In addition to the face, this procedure can also be done on the tummy, face, arms and leg.
If you’re looking to have liposuction and fat transfer, Tumescent Liposuction is the go-to procedure. It uses numbing liquid to make the tissues stiff before fat is removed. This method avoids swelling, bruising and infections. You’ll be awake through the whole procedure and there is little downtime. Have this done after Christmas and you can go back to work by December 29th. The fat removed from the procedure can be transferred to another part of the body like the breasts and it will not change the downtime.
For small lines, wrinkles and facial lift, the Carbon Dioxide Laser is a great option. It uses ultra pulsed light energy to specifically remove thin layers of skin. The damage to the surrounding structures are very minimal as well. If you would have this done after Christmas, you’ll be back at work by January 2nd.
