At Advanced Bariatric Surgery, Dr. Frenzel and his staff are dedicated to providing excellent patient care—before, during, and after a procedure. During an initial consultation, patients are encouraged to voice any questions, concerns, and interests so that Dr. Frenzel can better assess the needs and desires of the patient.
Once the patient has established which cosmetic plastic surgery they are interested in pursuing, the transformation process begins. Dr. Frenzel establishes a guideline for what to expect the day of the surgery and gives information on recovery. But the process doesn’t end there.
After surgery, Dr. Frenzel makes it his mission to ensure that patients feel connected and engaged in the recovery process and beyond. Your transformation journey doesn’t end after surgery is complete. Dr. Frenzel offers post-operative appointments to ensure that your recover process is progressing well.
Depending on the cosmetic procedure you have done, your recovery process will typically take about six to eight weeks. The breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries available at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery. This procedure can be performed with an incision to the belly button, peri-areola, inframammary fold of the breast, or arm pit area. The recovery for each of these procedures requires downtime and slow progression to routine exercises and day-to-day activities. It is crucial that patients understand the commitment to recovery before setting a date for their procedure.
Dr. Frenzel thoroughly discusses all of the recovery information during a consultation to better inform patients of what to expect throughout each stage of the process. Post-op, patients will experience minimal discomfort and will be given pain medication. During the first week of recovery, patients are given exercises to complete to begin the adjustment stage of recovery. Staying in bed or remain still can actually work against patients. It is important to slowly work up to moving your arms to speed the recovery process.
An abdominoplasty, referred to as the tummy tuck, is another popular cosmetic surgery. This procedure can be done as a mini tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, or endoscopic abdominal muscle tightening. During a full abdominoplasty, Dr. Frenzel removes excess skin from the upper and lower abdomen and lifts remaining skin up to the rib cage area.
Recover from the tummy tuck procedure takes about six weeks. During these six weeks, patients are required to wear a compression support garment to ensure maximum shrinkage and a smoother appearance. In addition, the recovery process for this procedure limits physical activities. Dr. Frenzel will discuss the full extent of all necessary recovery requirements during a consultation.
When considering cosmetic surgery, it is important to understand the time restrains and limitations required. During an initial consultation with Dr. Frenzel, you can voice any concerns and ask any questions regarding your cosmetic transformation.
