I had a tummy tuck, lower face lift, chin reduction and eyes bags done and lip implants all in one day. I had drain from the lower part of the facelift and drains from the tummy tuck. After, surgery my face was super bruised and swelled. My stomach was swelled. I never had any pain, but just a little discomfort from the drains in my tummy. The second the drains were removed from my head. doctor was amazed how I had no swelling anywhere in my face. On the 4th day after surgery the drains of my stomach were removed and the stitches from the top or eye lids. On the 10th day after the surgeries the stitches in front of my ears where removed and the staple behind the ears where removes. The stitches from my lips they fall out on there own as well as the one inside my mouth for the chin reduction. That took about 10 days. The lower eye lid took longer to fall. I need to go back to remove the stitch from behind the ear. and the stitches from the tummy tuck will also fall out on there own. I am on day 12 since I had the surgery. I feel great with no pain. just a few bruising on the neck and side by the ear. I applied for care credit through the doctors office. The more you get done at one time the more discount you receive. Strax In Boca or in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. They have 15 doctors. Three years ago I also had lipo and breast with the care credit card. You can not beat the there prices. I believe it is the best around in Florida. Gigi

Wow! I thought I had a lot done to me but you win. I can’t imagine doing that all in one day. I am glad to hear about someone else who had no pain from their surgery.
I have never heard of “Care Credit” so I looked it up. For others reading this, CareCredit is a credit card which is exclusive for healthcare services. “With CareCredit, you can get a No Interest* payment plan if paid in full within 6, 12, 18 or 24 months on purchases with your CareCredit card.”
Out of curiosity, I also looked up Strax Rejuvenation® in South Florida. It looks like they do just about any type of plastics surgery anyone might need.
Good luck with the rest of your recovery.
