The recovery time really depends on what treatment is recommended for you based on your consultation with Dr. Buonassisi. In general, non surgical treatments have a shorter recovery than surgery with patients back to regular activities immediately but possible bruising or swelling that can last about 1 week. Facial slimming surgeries have approximately a 1 week recovery. We would be happy to help assess your face and make some preliminary recommendations during a complementary pre consultation.
