Try not to let this upset you. Avoid sudden movements/turns of your head to either side to prevent tension on the sutures. It is best to move your shoulder along with your head. Eat a relatively soft diet and avoid excessive chewing for 2 weeks. All the sutures will be removed between the 5th and 8th day. Because alcohol can prolong swelling, avoid it for two weeks. Make-up can be applied after 1 week. Any color treatments or hair cuts should be planned at least three weeks after the procedure and your last hair treatment should be no sooner than a week before your surgical procedure. Healing Care: Rest (both physical and mental) and adequate nutrition are important factors in healing, so eat well and take it easy for a few weeks. Numbness, tingling, swelling, itching, discoloration, bumpiness, firmness, crusting, tightness, and redness around the incisions are normal complaints and should go away with full healing. Do not wear earrings for 2-3 weeks. Avoid extreme sun exposure for 3 months, as it can cause swelling or an uneven change in pigmentation. Wear a hat and sunscreen of at least 30 SPF when in the direct sun. Follow Up Appointments: • Prescription medication (please bring with you on the day of procedure) • Vaseline • Q-tips • Drinking straws • Hydrogen peroxide • DO NOT TAKE vitamin E, aspirin or aspirin-like products including Ibuprofen, Advil, Aleve, Nuprin, or Motrin for 3 weeks before and one week after surgery.
