A Frequently Asked Question

Q: I have a lot of swelling. Is this an emergency?
A: Swelling is natural after any surgical procedure. If swelling is accompanied by severe pain, uncontrollable bleeding or pus, please call our office immediately! The good news is that swelling typically peaks 48 hours after surgery and then goes down after that.
