We’re living in busy times. Now more than ever, individuals are faced with jam-packed schedules as they juggle the hectic demands of careers, school, family and many other daily responsibilities. It can be difficult to make time to take care of yourself. Fortunately, there are several options for cosmetic procedures that require little downtime.
Thanks to advances in technique and technology, patients have the opportunity to enhance and rejuvenate their appearance, without the guilt of carving out an extended period of time to recover. Here are just some of the options available:
- Blepharoplasty: Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, improves the appearance of tired-looking or puffy eyes. This procedure is performed in-office, using local anesthesia and can take as little as 45 minutes. Immediately following the procedure, patients can return home. In most cases, patients return to work and other daily activities within a few days.
- Lip Enhancement: Many patients turn to injectable dermal fillers to achieve fuller lips. Lip augmentations are performed on an outpatient basis in the surgeon’s office, and may take less than an hour. Most patients return to normal activities in one or two days.
- Rhinoplasty: Also known as nose surgery, rhinoplasty sculpts the appearance and shape of the nose. The surgery can also correct a deviated septum and breathing issues. Most procedures are performed in-office, and take one to two hours to complete. Patients return home the same day, and typically resume work one week following surgery.
- Liposuction: Due to significant advances in technology, liposuction is no longer the invasive procedure it once was. New techniques allow for greater precision while remaining minimally invasive, which means better results and shorter recovery time for patients. Following liposuction, many patients feel comfortable enough to return to work and regular activities within a few days.
