Care you should have after a Gluteoplasty

After a gluteoplasty, it is important to follow specific care instructions to ensure proper recovery. Some of these care instructions include:

1. Rest: It’s essential to allow your body to rest and recover after surgery. Avoid engaging in intense physical activities during the first few weeks and follow your surgeon's recommendations on when you can return to your normal activities.

2. Use of compression garments: Your surgeon may recommend the use of compression garments to help reduce swelling and promote better healing. Make sure to follow the instructions on how to properly use these garments.

3. Care for incisions: Keep the incisions clean and dry to prevent infections. Follow the instructions on how to properly care for the incisions and when you can start applying creams or lotions to the area.

4. Medications and pain relievers: You may be prescribed medications to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. Follow your doctor's recommendations regarding the dosage and frequency of these medications.

5. Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol: Smoking and consuming alcohol can negatively affect the healing process and increase the risk of complications. Avoid these substances during the recovery period.

6. Medical follow-up: Schedule follow-up appointments with your surgeon to ensure that you are healing properly and to address any concerns or questions you may have. 

Remember that these are just some general care instructions, and it is important to follow the specific recommendations of your plastic surgeon for a successful recovery.
