New techniques allow for faster recovery from liposuction procedures. Recovery time itself will depend on the extent of the operation that the patient undergoes. Generally, as with all surgery, you need plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and reduce recovery time.
A support garment may need to be worn for several weeks after the lipo procedure, depending upon which area(s) are treated. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with surgery, which can be treated effectively with oral medication.
While complications are rare, patients can minimize the risk for potential problems by carefully following the directions given to them by our Plastic Surgery SoCal team after surgery. Our office staff will also be available to answer any questions and to check in on your comfort and recovery after your procedure.
