Jaw Surgery Results & After Care
The before and after of a jaw surgery are visibly varying- however, you must be cautious with your diet, eating habits and skin care to ensure proper healing and recovery. Firstly, it is important to follow your cosmetologist’s instructions. Painkillers may be prescribed to curb pain. A modified diet may also be introduced to reduce the strain on your jaw. Avoid smoking and heavy exercising. All of this, however, is only during the initial period. Usually, it takes 1-3 weeks to resume your normal activities and nearly 12 months for complete recovery.
