After the operation a head bandage will be applied for one day. Even after removal of the bandage, swelling, bruises and a sensation of tension are normal and will disappear automatically. A sensation of tension and numbness may last for several months before easing completely. Four to five days after the operation you may use make-up again, have a shower and wash your hair with a special shampoo. After one week you can carefully start using facial cream again. The stitches will normally be removed after 10 t0 14 days, and by then most of the swelling will have disappeared. Exercise may be resumed after about four weeks.

It will take at least two months before the final result is seen and can be assessed.
