Few things to expect after Liposuction (recovery and results)

When a healthy diet and exercise fails to get rid of fat, liposuction is often a good idea to achieve your desired body contour. Liposuction can target many areas, such as abdomen, waist, thighs, arms, etc.

Knowing what to expect after the procedure and following your doctor´s post-op instructions can help you achieve the desired results.

After surgery, you can expect to see: bruising, redness and swelling and to feel mild discomfort. The medications prescribed will help to ease the discomfort. You may be instructed to wear compression garment (faja) to help you reduce the swelling. Within a few weeks you should be comfortable enough to return to work.

Small incisions: are made to remove the excess fat cells. These incisions are small and usually made in unnoticed areas, you should receive after-care instructions to care them after the procedure to ensure that the incisions heal with minimal scarring.

Following a: healthy diet, drinking enough water, and doing a regular exercise routine (once your surgeon clears you) can help promote healing, keep a healthy body weight and help you achieve your desired body contour after the swelling goes down.

Its important to keep in mind that Liposuction results might not be necessarily permanent. Some fat cells still remain and can grow. It is up to you to take good care of yourself to enjoy your slimmer look for a long time. It is essential to have realistic expectations and know that requires a commitment to healthy lifestyle to maintain your new look.
