You may need to wait three to six months to see the complete result.

How long will I need to stay in the hospital after my procedure?

However, there are some cases where patients need to stay in the hospital for around two days. The procedure itself takes about 45 minutes to one hour to complete.

How long should I expect to stay overseas after my procedure? 

The recommended length of stay overseas is about 10 to 14 days. You must not travel home straight after your surgery as you need to allow your body to heal and you have to attend follow-up check-ups, where the doctor will monitor your healing and overall health to make sure no complications arise.
