The recovery period varies for each patient, depending on the individual procedures that were performed. You can expect to be pretty sore and swollen for the first few days post-op, but this subsides relatively quickly. Bruising and tenderness may last for up to two weeks. It is essential to follow all post-operative instructions given to you by your surgeon to ensure optimal healing. You will also be instructed not to use make-up or other cosmetics until your incisions have healed sufficiently enough so as not to disrupt the wound healing process. For those just starting hormone therapy, some temporary skin changes may occur in response to the treatment (i.e., excess oil production and dry skin). Patients should also expect minor swelling around their eyes during this time.
The Softer Side of You
After completing your procedure, you can expect to see a softer, more feminine version of yourself. The changes will be subtle, but they will be noticeable to you and those around you. You may also find that your facial expressions align with how you feel inside, which can be a freeing experience.

For most patients, the discomfort is manageable and can be controlled with over-the-counter medication. Some report pain around the incisions near the eyebrows and upper lip. These are usually the most sensitive areas due to the feminine contouring performed.
