The answer can be more specific if you let me know what is the problem and what are you looking for.Once the procedure is selected then we know the recovery time.

dear nivedita,
most of the patients of cosmetic plastic surgery can go home within 4 to 8 hours after the surgery. with advances in technology and minimally invasive surgery techniques, very few patients need overnight stay in hospital
