Mentally, you may be on Summer vacation already – dreaming of cabanas, pools and beaches.  But is your body up to the task of looking as good as you feel?  Summer is the time where we all want to show some skin!

Luckily some of the more common plastic surgery requests are well-suited to crunch-time mentality.  The procedures are simple and fast, and the famously short recovery time allows you to enjoy the rest of your summer looking the way you want to look!

A Quick Guide to Quick-Recovery Plastic Surgery Procedures:

If you have …

24 hours:  Try one of these face-enhancing procedures.  Each has a 24 hour recovery time (for swelling to decrease.)  *Note:  occasionally some swelling or bruising can remain for several days to weeks.

  • BOTOX®
  • Lip Augmentation
  • Juvéderm®

4 weeks:  While the big three, listed below, are more complex procedures than the quick recovery face procedures above, it still is worth mentioning that performed early enough, these procedures can still be done and the results enjoyed later in the summer.

  • Breasts
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction

Contact Dr. Lawton for more information on any of these procedures including what recovery times you can expect.
