December 15, 2006, Newsletter Issue #43: Extreme Makeover Recovery

Tip of the Week

You've decided you want an extreme makeover. You think, getting all that plastic surgery will be easy and you'll return to normal activities tomorrow. Wrong. You're too influenced by television--after all, you bought Joan Rivers' jewelry on QVC. Most surgeries, such as tummy tucks and lipsuction, require a recovery period longer than the one shown on the cancelled "Extreme Makeover" TV show. It take a week after a facelift to remove bandages.

The exact recovery time after multiple procedures in an extreme makeover depends on the patient, but it isn't instantaneous, despite what you've seen on the "Extreme Makeover" show. The rule of thumb is that the more anesthesia you have, the longer your recovery time. You can have multiple procedures at once, but if you have any doubt, prioritize, or consider putting off some procedures. Take a cue from the "Extreme Makeover" TV show and visit a dentist to have veneers--they can do wonders for your smile. After all, you want to go out and show off your Joan Rivers jewelry at that cocktail party as soon as you can!
