If you’re considering a cosmetic surgery holiday, you should think about how much time you’ll need to recover from your procedure. Depending on the type of surgery and your body’s healing process, you may need to plan for a longer vacation than just a quick makeover. It’s important to allow yourself enough time to heal before returning home.

When you plan your cosmetic surgery holiday, keep in mind that you’ll want to spend some time relaxing in the beautiful tropical location after your recovery is complete. Many clients wish they had stayed longer or arrived earlier to fully enjoy the shopping, sightseeing, and food that these destinations have to offer.

To ensure a successful procedure and an enjoyable holiday, we recommend that you plan your time off from work and family based on our suggested standard minimum time for recovery. These recommendations were designed based on adequate healing and recovery periods, and are based on our surgeons’ recommendations.

Make sure to only return home once your surgeon has given you the green light, and be sure to engage in wellness activities and maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime before and after your surgery to help your body bounce back faster. With proper planning and enough time for recovery, you’ll be able to come back home feeling refreshed and fully recovered.

A healthy diet and exercise regime can help your body bounce back much faster post-surgery. If you can build a healthy lifestyle pre and post-surgery, and allow enough time for yourself to recuperate during and after your holiday, you’ll be sure to have a successful procedure and an enjoyable holiday.
