What To Expect After Surgery

Normal Post-operative Sensations

It is normal after any surgical procedure to have some pain and swelling. This is the body’s normal response. By following good post-operative care, you can minimize these after-effects as much as possible.

Post-operative care:

  • Everyone needs some recovery time after surgery. The length of recovery time varies from person to person, but we recommend at least 1 to 2 days of resting at home.
  • If possible, have someone to help you at home.
  • Take all antibiotics and medications as prescribed.
  • The day of surgery, use ice packs to keep inflammation down.
  • The next day, use hot cloths to help increase circulation and speed healing.
  • The swelling will peak about 48 hours post-surgery and should diminish by day four.
  • If sutures were used, they will need to be removed a week to ten days post-surgery.
  • Follow any specific instructions that are given to you regarding post-operative care for this time period.
  • If the swelling does not go away, please contact our office.
