Cosmetic surgery recovery timelines for breast and body procedures.

Looking to plan cosmetic surgery in time for a big event such as a wedding, retirement, or reunion?  

Body contouring such as tummy tuck, liposuction, CoolSculpting® or cosmetic breast surgery (i.e. augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction), are best planned well in advance of the wedding date, whether you are a bride or the parents of the bride!

Plastic Surgery Expected Recovery Times

Typically breast surgery patients are back to work and look great within a few days to a week, however, exercise and strenuous activities are restricted for a month. This is similar for liposuction procedures, however, tummy tuck recovery is a bit longer. Keep in mind post-operative garments and supportive bras are worn for up to a month in order to maximize your recovery comfort and final new look. BTW- there’s no downtime with CoolSculpting, but overall results do take time to see.

For these important events, we do suggest that you allow at least 3 – 6 months for complete recovery. Since dress selection and alterations are a big part of this time it’s less stressful and more exciting if you know you look and feel body beautiful well in advance.  In addition, there are pre-wedding events and photo sessions that you will want to look your best. The longer you have to plan for cosmetic surgery the better you will look and feel on this important day!
