What are the Precautions after Face contouring surgery?

What are the precautions after the face contouring surgery? First, patient’s basic physical strength is very important. Patients who are in good condition of physical strength recover faster after surgery. For those who plan to get the surgery done, or made decision, please strengthen the physical strength before the surgery by taking much protein.
