Valentine’s Day is often considered the most romantic day of the year. If you are looking forward to a memorable evening with the person that you love, then you need to start preparing. There is still time to schedule an appointment for a last minute cosmetic procedure with a fast recovery to improve your appearance before the big day.

Fast Recovery Treatments

Here are a few procedures that can be done right now, giving you a few weeks to recover before Valentine’s Day:

  • Botox®
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Eyelid Lift
  • Neck Lift
  • Liposuction
  • Lip Enhancement

The best thing that you can do is schedule a consultation to learn more about recommended treatments for the areas that you would like to improve. For example, Botox can be used to smooth forehead wrinkles, along with fillers to enhance the appearance of the lips. This combination of treatments can be a dynamic way to improve your appearance in a short time.

How to Speed Up Recovery Time

In addition to choosing treatments with short recovery times, also consider ways that you can speed up your healing. Even though you are anxious to return to your daily activities, it is important to follow the recommendations of your doctor and give your body time to heal.

1. Pay Attention to the Pain: It is expected that you will experience some pain after the procedure. You might want to push through the pain, but make sure that you are consistent with pain medications so that you can rest.

2. Use Compression Garments: Some procedures require that you wear compression garments for a few weeks. This post-treatment step is important to control bruising and swelling, which will help to speed up healing time. Plus, you can minimize the appearance of the scars.

3. Maintain Activity When You are Ready: You should rest the first few days after the procedure. But, make it a point to move your body when you are feeling well enough to get out of bed. Step outside for a little bit of fresh air, or just walk around the house if you aren’t ready to leave yet. You shouldn’t return to your regular workout schedule yet, but it is important to maintain a little bit of movement to support blood flow and reduce the risk of constipation.

4. Minimize Smoking and Alcohol: It is best to stop smoking a few weeks before the procedure if possible. Then, stay away from the cigarettes after the procedure is complete. Smoking slows the healing process, increases the risk of blood clots, and makes it harder for your body to recover.

Following these recommendations can help you get back to your normal schedule in a short time, ensuring that you are ready for the upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration.
