Cautions to Note
General Cautions After Surgery
Drinking alcohol, smoking, vigorous exercise, and stress are prohibited for one month after surgery. Alcohol causes infection and inflammation. Smoking constricts the blood vessels, which delays wound healing.
In order to control bleeding, do not take aspirin or aspirin-like medicine without your doctor’s permission.
Using the sauna or hot tub, or partaking in vigorous exercise is prohibited for one month after surgery.
Abnormal sensitivity such as itchiness, throbbing, or pins and needles, is normal during the recovery process. If you have allergic itchiness, please visit the clinic for a prescription.
On the day of your operation, please avoid washing your face or taking a shower. Take extra care not to expose the surgical area to cosmetic products and irritants such as dust, dirt, wind, and pollen.
Please make sure to visit the clinic for your regular checkups and treatment, as scheduled in consultation with your doctor, and follow our instructions carefully.
Driving immediately after surgery is prohibited.
It’s very common for postoperative pain, swelling, and bruising to appear differently on each side. These conditions can differ depending on the individual’s physical characteristics. Swelling is normally at a maximum three to four days after surgery.
Please check the specific cautions relating to your surgery and follow the instructions carefully. We hope all of our patients have a fast recovery and the best results.
