The recovery after most cosmetic surgical procedures varies from 3 – 5 days for small procedures, such as eyelid lifts, to 2 – 3 weeks for larger procedures, such as facelifts and abdominoplasty. Patient health, patient age, and multiple procedures also greatly affect the range of recovery. It is best to discuss the specific estimate of recovery with Dr. Del Vecchio for your procedure at the time of your initial consultation.
Dr. Del Vecchio graduated from Harvard Medical School with honors in surgery and did his internship and residency at Harvard's Massachusetts General Hospital. He completed his plastic surgery training at Harvard's Massachusetts General Hospital and completed a fellowship in craniofacial and cosmetic surgery at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.
Dr. Del Vecchio has been practicing plastic surgery since 1992 and has continuously practiced for the past 15 years. He is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Your plastic surgery procedure can generally be booked 3 – 4 weeks after your consultation, although in some circumstances and for shorter procedures, like breast augmentation, the surgery can be done sooner.
