Recovering after surgery. The recuperation process is, unsurprisingly, the most significant focus of your daily life following surgery. You’ll get up every day and examine yourself in the mirror. Avoid the need to pull out the 10X magnifying mirror and begin nitpicking. Consider this: you’ll see the most dramatic changes if you don’t stare at yourself too carefully every day. It’s difficult to notice any changes when you’re constantly scrutinizing every tiny detail. Take a photo once a month to get a more objective view of your development, and try to be gentle with yourself in between. The road to recovery is a journey, not a race, and it is unique to each individual. Please contact Raleigh Plastic Surgery for more information.
