|Procedure||Recovery Time||Recommended Stay|
|Rhinoplasty||The first two to three days require the most postoperative care. After about a week, your cast will be removed. Overall, it’s common to expect at least two weeks for substantial recovery.||If time permits, Dr. Halaas recommends that her out-of-town patients plan to stay in the city for up to two weeks. However, at the minimum, you should plan to stay seven to ten days after your surgery.|
|Facelift||It will take about two weeks for the majority of the swelling and bruising to wear off. You will also need to wear compression wraps for a week. After a week, makeup can also be used to cover any remaining scars.||The recommended stay after a facelift is usually up to two weeks. After one week, your compression wraps will be removed. If you had a less invasive procedure, then a week to ten days may be sufficient.|
|Hair Transplant||Though recovery time will differ based on the exact procedure, Dr. Halaas suggests that patients allow about one week for recovering.||Many procedures require several session for appropriate results to show. Because of that, it’s advisable to plan ahead to stay in the city for one to two weeks.|
|Injectables||Injectables are non-surgical methods of enhancement. Thus, they only require few days at most for any minor swelling or bruises to disappear.||Unlike surgery, with injectables, you can simply fly in, undergo your procedure, and fly back home on the very same day.|
