Prior to a body contouring surgery, Dr. Wallach will give you detailed instructions on what you can and cannot do leading up to the day of your procedure. Each procedure comes with its own unique risks, costs, and recovery experiences, and he will provide all of that during consultations leading up to the surgery.
Commonly patients need to adjust blood-thinning medications and quit smoking in the weeks before surgery. If going under general anesthesia, patients will need to fast the night before the procedure.
After surgery, you should expect some swelling and bruising and some post-operative discomfort in the treatment area. You may have dressings in place, or be wearing a compression garment. You may also have drains.
Every procedure and every patient is unique, and the recovery times vary based on patients’ overall health and how well they adhere to Dr. Wallach’s post-op instructions.
Because there are so many different procedures that can be included in body contour surgery, the fee will depend upon the specific procedure chosen.
