Technically, you can return to work the very next day. In reality, for your own comfort, it is probably best to wait up to two weeks so that everything looks normal. You should speak to Dr. Lupanzula about this if you have further questions.
Dr. Lupanzula enjoys seeing his patients as often as possible. Life does not allow this to be very often however so he wishes to see his patients in person, or to at least have high quality photographs, every three months. This allows Dr. Lupanzula and the staff to monitor and document your progress.
No, not until you have reached your final result one year after surgery. If you wish to use concealers before this period be sure to call Medikemos Clinic. Dr. Lupanzula feels that these types of products can clog pores and have the potential to stunt full regrowth.
Medicine is an inexact science so no surgical procedure can ever truly be performed with a “guarantee”. Clinics that offer such promises are not completely transparent in this regard. There is a risk of incomplete regrowth from the procedure but it is very low, less than 5%. We do not have cases of complete failure.
Dr. Lupanzula will discuss your case and review your photos. If you live close enough to Medikemos Clinic he will prefer to see you in person. Dr. Lupanzula will discuss with you your options for how to achieve full satisfaction and a plan will be made. Dr. Lupanzula and Medikemos Clinic ALWAYS stand behind and support the patient.
Yes. Smoking constricts blood vessels which is counter-productive to optimal healing after any surgical procedure. By ceasing the use of tobacco products you are boosting the potential for strong and early regrowth. If you continue to smoke after a procedure you run the risk of compromising your final result, not to mention your health.
