I got home and took some tylenol and went to bed, chin strap and all. With liposuction we put fluid in, and it drains over the next few hours to days, depending on the area done. I had a small amount of drainage on a pad that had been applied the previous day. We recommend wearing the chin strap at night for about a week. We also recommend the patient wear the chin strap during the day for about 2-3 days, then as needed during the day. After the initial 2-3 days I would wear it when my chin/neck started feeling achy, it helped that sensation go away.
Discomfort after the procedure was not bad. I would take tylenol as needed. I had my procedure done on a Wednesday and went to work that Thursday and Friday. We recommend to patients to do the procedure on a Thursday or Friday and they can be back to work Monday or Tuesday. Now I know why, I was ok Thursday just a little tired but more tired and sore on Friday. I rested a lot that weekend and was fine and back to normal Monday
Looking Good, Feeling Amazing!
Overall I was thrilled with how the results turned out. I had my jawline back!! I really improved my self-esteem. Since I’ve had the procedure done I can much more easily relate to patients and have a better perspective on what they experience. I would do it again if ever needed.
