What is the recovery time for the surgery I want to have?

Expand

For most surgical procedures, we recommend taking at least one week off work or your regular duties. Some procedures involve a longer recovery period. Definitive answers will be given to you during your consultation with Dr Miroshnik. Some guidelines are shown below:-

Breast Augmentation: 1-2 weeks off work
Rhinoplasty: 2 weeks off work
Mummy Makeover: 3 weeks off work

Do I need to have a General Anaesthetic?

Expand

This depends on your procedure and the complexity of the surgery. Some minor procedures are quite simple and may be performed using local anaesthetic +/- sedation. By far the majority of procedures, however, require a general anaesthetic, where you will be asleep during the operation.
In most instances, you will be able to go home the same day as surgery. For very large procedures, a brief hospital stay is required.
