How Soon After Getting A Brow Bone Implant Can I Return To Work?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have the following questions about custom brow bone implants, to make my forehead more masculine: 

1. How soon after the surgery can I fly back home? 

2. How soon can I return to work in a office-setting? 

Thanks in advance.

A: In answer to your brow bone implant questions:

1) You could fly home the next day.

2) Returning to work would depend on how you feel about any swelling that persists in the recovery phase. Your restrictions after surgery are not physical but appearance related.
