Liposuction is one of the most popular approaches to get rid of fat deposits. If you have been working on sculpting your figure with a proper diet and a fitness regimen, you still may have stubborn fat. Fat can cling to trouble spots, like your abdomen, your buttocks, or your thighs. It can be so frustrating when you are doing everything right, yet the fat doesn’t want to disappear. Liposuction allows our plastic surgeon to target the isolated areas where you want to eliminate fat. As long as you continue to take care of yourself with a good diet and an active lifestyle, you will be able to maintain your new figure.
What Can You Expect from Liposuction Recovery?
Liposuction recovery is relatively easy when compared to other surgical procedures. A compression garment will be supplied for any area where you had liposuction. Plan on wearing clothing that is loose for your trip home and in the days that follow. Make sure that you get up and get on the move every two hours. This will keep your blood flowing well. You’ll go in for a follow-up with our surgeon. You should be cleared for walking on a regular basis. Plan on wearing your compression garments for a few weeks. Most liposuction patients get back to work within a few weeks after surgery. It all depends on what type of work you do. If you have heavy duties, you may need to give your body more time to recuperate.
