I am having FUE surgery with Dr. Armani on September 2nd. I was under the impression that I would have to stay a full week, however I was just told by the patient coordinator that I could leave the very next day. She also said that if I didn’t leave the next day, I would need to stay a full week because swelling begins to set-in 2 days post op. My question to other Armani patients – when did swelling begin to set-in? Is there anyone who had swelling the very next day? The last thing I want is for my head to balloon to twice its size while I’m on my flight back home. Is it safe to travel the next day or should I stay the whole week?
Also, what causes the swelling? It seems that I’ve read here before that it is caused by the saline solution that Dr. Armani uses, however, the patient coordinator led me to believe that it’s caused my the meds. Any feedback to my questions would be greatly appreciated.
